The Aftermath Of Korede Bello’S Church Performance: What Makes A Song Secular?


The Webster dictionary clearly define “HYPOCRITE”, as a person who claims or pretend to have certain believes about what is right but who behave in a way that disagree with those believe.

With this definition I can authoritatively say that the people that have been criticizing Korede’s GODWIN performance at the island branch of KICC-Harvester International Christian Center in Lekki Lagos are hypocrite.
There is obviously need to state what makes a song secular or sacred (gospel). Is it the artiste that sang the song or the lyrics i.e. the message of the song?
Without any disrespect, I read the thought of pastor Olusola Fabumi and I respect it, I would have appreciate him if he state what makes a song secular than just criticizing him.
Words and lyrics indicate the message of the song, and many song don’t have messages that can be put to use in church environment, but there are song that can be used in church to help direct the congregation attention to God.
Most people can tell whether a song is appropriate or not from the lyric and content of the song. But we must be careful not to rule out a song solely based on the artist who work or recorded it, which I think is what most people are doing to the song “GODWIN”
Can we say the song “GODWIN” In the mouth of frank Edward is holy and sacred while the same song in the mouth of korede Bello is secular? Absolutely not. So what really makes a song secular?
Music is a gift from God and was intended to be used for his purpose. Things are sacred or secular based on their use in light of God's purpose. God is the only true Creator, He redeems that which is secular and makes it sacred according to his purpose, even you and me.
It is not the sound of words that makes them holy, it’s the intension and motive behind the communication.
What do you say of a choir that listen to Skoki song and form a Christian lyrics with it and perform it in the church? Or a church member that dances Shoki or Skelewu whenever the song is played outside the church only for them to say it’s an unholy song?
In this I say let’s be rational when we want to critize things or people to avoid discouraging young talents.
