Aboru Aboye yes is Yoruba language with a meaning and significant with Isedale (traditionalist). Please, gospel musicians should beware and not bring confusion into the church and Christian community as a whole. Let’s know where you belong abeg. Oversabi is what is killing us in Nigeria. Abor aboye bawo in the church of God…. I am yet to get over the Ajanaku story o, bcos Tope Alabi is someone I hold in high esteem when it comes to music and gospel and that story really disorganized or messed up my perception about her. Please let me recover fully from that.

The greeting is limited to only the idol worshippers, most especially the Ogboni confraternity. Aboru Aboye; then the recipient would answer Aboye Bosise. If you’re still doubting this as a Yoruba person, please try to greet your parents by saying Aboru Aboye then come back to give me feedback

Recall that Tope Alabi was linked to the late Prophet Ajanaku, who was reportedly into traditional religion.

Speaking out on their relationship after his passing, Tope Alabi revealed that she had distanced herself from him even before the scandal.

Alabi, who was rumored to be having an affair with the prophet, said there was nothing sexual between both of them.

According to her, she had already parted ways with the late man of God before rumors of his diabolic ways came to the fore.
