According to City People Magazine, Pastor Toyin Ogundipe, who is in charge of Province 20 of the Redeemed Church, paid Pasuma to perform at a crusade. The crusade titled, “Lagos Island Family Areas Forum” was slated to hold between Friday, October 23rd- Sunday 25th, 2015. But the church, through its provincial headquarters on Lagos Island, cancelled it due the criticism that followed the invitation of the Fuji musician.
On the poster, which was leaked by those working at the Printing Press where it’s being printed, Pasuma’s picture appeared alongside gospel singer, Tope Alabi and a former band leader of the late Fela Anikulapo’s Egypt 80 band, Kereke Jike. The pastor was later suspended.
In an interview with City People, Pasuma declared that although the church’s management paid for the show, it is never done to expect him to return the money, he said: “The fault is not ours, we were ready to perform for them until we learnt of the cancelation of the crusade.”….. n thus deny many area boys d opportunity to “ligali” in d presence of d lord.
