Gospel artist, Nathaniel Bassey has advised Nigerians to avoid insulting men of God while they engage in football banters.
Bassey wrote on his twitter, ”So the fun & friendly football banters we share here has, for some, become a reason to insult and ridicule “Nigerian Pastors?” How sad. What has being a Nigerian Pastor got to go with a football game? Okay then, we’ll just keep it at music and ministry so folks don’t sin.
“Being on Twitter and social media doesn’t mean you should throw away decorum and respect for people. Folks forget life can be interesting. And your actions can indeed hunt you later. You don’t know where you’d meet people tomorrow. Please let’s act with care even on Twitter.
“Why do folks think pastors should not relate on such levels? They are the reason ministers of the gospel appear to put up a mystical front. I grew up playing and watching lots of football. So is it wrong to share some of these moment here? It is well o. Happy Sunday people.”
Latest checks by NewsWireNGR has however revealed that the music minister has deleted the tweet for reasons unknown.
The minister expressed his warning on Sunday just hours after the UEFA Champions League final between Chelsea vs Manchester City. Chelsea edged the match 1-0 with a Kai Havertz strike and, were crowned champions.
