Some listeners feel that the track, with lyrics like “Fine boys wey love Jesus,” lacks the spiritual essence expected of gospel music and incorporates secular elements.

In an Instagram post on Friday, Segun Obe reposted a statement criticizing the shift away from traditional gospel themes like sacrifice, the cross, and spiritual transformation towards more worldly themes like physical appearance.

The statement prompted various reactions, with some echoing Segun Obe’s sentiments and others offering counterarguments. One commenter suggested that the use of terms like “fine boys and fine girls” in the song may be an attempt to connect with younger audiences who might otherwise perceive Christianity as uncool.
