Award winning Gospel singer, Tope Alabi, has reacted to media reports that she confessed to being a mermaid in a new audio. She was on Faaji FM where she debunked the claims and said when the news first went viral, she had thought it to be one of those “media stunts” until a pastor called.
She further said:“I was on a foreign musical tour when someone called and said I had released a new audio, where I confessed to being a mermaid. I didn’t believe it because I felt it was just one of those media stunts. So, I just waved the whole thing aside.”It was when I got home and another pastor called me and said he just got the tape and that I was the one. I was dumbfounded. So, I asked him to please play it for me. To my greatest surprise, I actually listened to it over the phone and I just sat there. The voice was exactly my voice. But I just can’t explain how the person did it. The only confession I have ever done and will continue to do is the gospel of Christ.”
