Pastor Bolaji Idowu, the Lead preacher at Harvesters International Christian Center, has been dragged on social media for inviting secular singer, Spyro to perform at the church’s Christmas Carol.
The Christmas Carol that was held at the Church’s branch in Lekki, Lagos on 17th of December, 2023 sparked a wave of reactions.
For this year’s Carol, aside from Spyro, other celebrities like Daniel Effiong, Bisola Ayeola, Dorathy Bachor, Sharon Ooja, Uzor Arukwe, and Adeh Gbolahan, were invited.
The preacher had announced it on his Instagram page, with the caption, “Can’t wait for this ! It’s today, starts in less than an hour.”
Pastor Bolaji Idowu has since been ridiculed by netizens who condemned the idea of mixing worldly practices with Christianity.
It would be recalled that a Celestial Church also invited the controversial street rapper, Portable and Fuji singer, Pasuma to their praise night some 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.”
