Recently a video, which showed her dancing Zanku, a dance many consider worldly, during her dad’s burial ceremony went viral on the internet. Many criticized her for dancing in such a worldly manner.

However, Alabi has come out to defend herself. He said she had to dance in such manner because she needed to worship God since she had just buried her dad, adding that those who are spiritual will understand. She defended herself on WakeUp Nigeria, a breakfast show produced by TVContinenetal .

“In a nutshell I needed that dance. It was at my other’s burial. The show was organized by my gospel artiste friends to just worship God after the wake-keep And I needed to worhip God. I just needed to. It is not easy to bury your father. Some people died before their father died. So if you are spiritual you will know you need that dance ,” Alabi maintained.
Before she became a gospel artiste, Alabi had produced soundtracks for secular movies.
