Oshoffa, in a post via his Facebook page last week, condemned Portable and Pasuma’s invitation to the church’s praise night stating that he had spoken to the cleric in charge of the parish to make amendments to the posters, adding that the singers would no longer grace the occasion.
He wrote, “Dear Celestians, I have just spoken to the Shepherd in Charge of the above Parish at length. He has promised to make amendments to the posters.
“He has promised that the said contested artists would NOT come for the Nights. There is No doubt the said poster is very CONDEMNABLE. God bless CCC. Amen.”

According to him, he was destined to sing at the praise night. The controversial singer urged his Celestial church fans and his lovers to troop out massively and protest so he could perform at the event.
