It is going to be a portable praise night at a church in Lagos State.

A branch of the Celestial Church of Christ in Lagos State has come under heavy criticism for inviting Fuji singer, Pasuma and street-hop artiste, Portable, to its praise night event.


As Nigerians struggle to take the front seat in judging the matter, many cannot help but ponder what the house of God has turned into in Nigeria.
