Mavin Records act; Korede Bello performed his smash hit single, ‘Godwin’ at HICC (Harvesters International Christian Centre) in Lagos. The performance generated mixed reactions from some of his fans and followers of Nigerian music. While some saw nothing wrong with him performing the song in a church, others felt he crossed the line as a secular act who mounted the sacred pulpit.
In a recent interview with online media, NET, the young act said he never regretted doing it on the sacred altar saying, if the opportunity presents itself again, he will gladly do it all over again. “If you are the pastor of a church and you invite me to perform the song, yes I will perform the song again. It is God’s song and whatever is happening now is predetermined, people are talking about God that is all that matters,” he stated.
When asked if the song was designed to be a gospel song, he said: “From the inception of Godwin, I knew that it was not my song, I knew that anything that is for God has the potential of growing bigger than you imagine. It is not quite a gospel song, it is an inspirational song, what I mean by it is for God is the fact that it is dedicated to God. I don’t see it as my song, I see it as people’s song and I see it as a song for God.”
