Why Are Gospel Singers Running Away From Nigerian Women?

By Gideon Ayeni



The Nigerian gospel community has been buzzing with excitement after Gospel Minister Theophilus Sunday announced his engagement to Jamaican fiancée, Ashlee White.

However, reports that amidst the celebrations, a wave of criticism has emerged with critics questioning the trend of Nigerian gospel ministers marrying women from other countries while seemingly overlooking Nigerian ladies.

Taking to Instagram to share the news with the caption, “As it pleases the Lord,” Minister Sunday ignited both joy and controversy. Ashlee, a US-based Jamaican lawyer and real estate agent, has captured his heart, but the choice sparked debate among Nigerians.
