Grammy award-winning gospel singer Tasha Cobbs-Leonard, popular for her Billboard chart topping song, “Break Every Chain,” has been criticised by many,including Gigt Bamiloye, for featuring Nicki Minaj on her new album.

Cobbs (36) and Minaj (32) collaborate on the song, “I’m Getting Ready,” from her latest album “Heart. Passion. Pursuit.”

Months back, Minaj, with real name is Onika Maraj, known for her use of explicit rap lyrics, reportedly revealed to her over 20 million social media followers, that she hoped to team up with Cobbs.

Nicki Minaj’s dream came true recently, however not without a barrage of unfriendly comments from many individuals particularly Christian folks.

Some individuals were quick to rise to the artistes’ defense

A notable condemnation was the long epistolic opinion, renowned pastor Mike Bamiloye’s daughter, Gift, expressed regarding the collaboration between the gospel and secular artistes.
It reads,
This has been on my mind for a while now. (Family, Repost if you agree) LET’S GET THE TRUTH OUT!
THE COLLABORATION OF GOSPEL AND SECULAR MUSIC ARTISTES
The reoccurence of gospel artistes collaborating with secular artistes with the excuse of bringing them into the church. Actually its a Fallacy. A misleading.
Gospel songs are produced for the glorification of the Kingdom of God. It is a spiritual issue, a weapon God uses to contend for the hearts and minds of men.
And we all know that music has the ability to influence your demeanour and life in General without our permission.
The collaboration reveals that the gospel artiste is perfectly fine with the kind of songs the secular turns out to the public?. This definitely dilutes the seriousness and respect of Worship. Is that what God really wants?
We may claim that it is a way of bringing them into the light of Christ. But at the expense of millions of people around the world?
Thousands brought to the light of Christ through you whose faiths are not yet on a strong enough foundation but are watching you because they first felt Christ through you. What message are you passing across to them?
I can as well have the impression: ‘my role model sees no problem singing with this artiste. There’s no problem listening to the songs made by the artistes then’.
Why are we making ourselves seem like robots that anyone including infiltrators of the church can use the name of Jesus In vain to manipulate us, spark a dispute within the body of Christ that should have no grounds and turns us against each other?
If we want to bring a soul to the side of the Lord, let our words be used to sow the seeds of conviction and let the HolySpirit do His work. There are some lines that you don’t cross for the sake of those God has placed in your care.
Paul already emphasized that whatever would make another to stumble should be put away.
The Truth never changes.
