Anti-indecency activist and Deeper Life member Prince Dele Banjo staged a peaceful protest at Deeper Life headquarters in Gbagada, Lagos.
The manifestation is related to the introduction of unconventional music in Deeper Life.
Prince Dele Banjo said:
“We are surprised at the introduction of unconventional music as well as the invitation of gospel rock stars to Deeper Life. We are also surprised at the invitation of local Christian musicians who are not partisans of modesty to a deeper life.
“We are surprised because Pastor Kumuyi who is our father in the Lord did not raise his children to us with such music. Instead, he raised us with modesty, holiness, and the belief that we should worship God with our only hymn book using low, humble songs.
“Pastor Kumuyi is the one who taught us everything we know about modesty and holiness, so we are surprised that our teacher changes direction and invites international Gospel rock stars and local musicians who are not not supporters of modesty to come sing deeper life.
“We strongly believe that as a holiness church, the deeper life should remain with our choir and hymnal given by God alone. We don’t need unnecessary noise from those American gospel rockstars and local Christian musicians.
“Our humble, God-given choir at Deeper Life of these lovely teenage keyboardists and trumpeters is enough for us at Deeper Life.
“Since he is our father in the Lord, we hereby ask him for an explanation; we want our dear father in the Lord to defend the invitation of rockstars and local Christian musicians who are not in favor of modesty.
“We hold the hymnbook in our hands to prove to everyone that all we need in deeper life is our God-given hymnbook.
“Thank you very much.”
