Speaking tongues is considered as one of the noblest things to do as a Christian in Africa. The language of tongues is seen as the language in heaven and for that matter, people invest so much into learning and executing it to perfection.
But Nigerian singer, Timi Dakolo has slammed those who pride themselves in speaking in tongues in churches, saying that it’s not the ultimate.
He’s of the view that most of those who like speaking tongues – a language that is not even understood by themselves are bad in speaking English language.
Taking to his Twitter handle, the singer wrote that the fluent tongues that they speak in churches won’t replace English when they want to render an apology to people they have wronged.
His tweet reads: “Speaking in tongues will not replace the apology you owe people in English.”
Timi Dakolo is a musician, songwriter and producer who was shot to fame in 2007 after winning the maiden edition of the Idols West Africa reality show.
He won a recording deal with Sony BMG which saw him churning out some of his best tunes in his music career.
