Pastor Bolaji Idowu, the main preacher at Harvesters International Christian Centre, faces criticism for inviting the renowned Afrobeat singer Spyro to perform at the church’s Christmas Carol event.


A Christmas Carol took place on December 17, 2023, at the Church’s Lekki branch in Lagos, triggering a wave of responses.


The lineup for this year’s Carol featured not only Spyro but also celebrities such as Daniel Effiong, Bisola Ayeola, Dorathy Bachor, Sharon Ooja, Uzor Arukwe, Adeh Gbolahan, and Kenneth Ophopho, as indicated on the flyer.

The preacher announced it on his Instagram page, writing, “Can’t wait for this!” It’s today, and it begins in less than an hour.”

Netizens have ridiculed Pastor Bolaji Idowu for blending secular practices with Christianity.

It’s worth noting that a Celestial Church recently invited the controversial street rapper Portable and Fuji singer Pasuma to their praise night a few weeks ago.

This flier isn’t giving Harvesters a good image ngl, don’t get me wrong God loves everyone on this flier but I think it’s a unnecessary post.”
