Soji Alabi has finally come out to defend his wife, Tope Alabi, following the series of attacks she received for dancing Zanku.
According to Pope Olusoji Alabi, the gospel singer went through a lot after losing her father. In his words, “she was trying to dance away the tears”.
“People should not just believe things without finding out the reasons. That video was definitely recorded at the wake keep service of my wife’s late father,” Soji Alabi said.
“As somebody who just lost her father, she was just trying to dance away the tears and she just expressed herself. Nobody saw her when she was crying, but now they are against her for dancing?” Soji Alabi added.
Meanwhile, the singer herself made the same remarks during an interview with TVC. She stated that she was celebrating her father who died of old age, stressing that it’s better to bury one’s parent than for the parents to bury their children.
Indeed, the reactions have been mixed, with several people seeing nothing wrong with the way she danced and several others criticizing her.
Tope Alabi also said that anyone who’s spiritual will know she needed that dance.
