Backlash trails Tope Alabi’s Tribute Song to Queen Elizabeth



Tope Alabi, a gospel singer, is currently the target of online mockery and criticism after releasing a song in memory of the late Queen Elizabeth, who passed away on September 8, 2022.

Queen Elizabeth, who ruled Britain for the longest period of time and served as its symbol for seven decades, passed away at the age of 96.

According to a statement from Buckingham Palace, “The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral.”

Her eldest son Charles, 73, now automatically assumes the thrones of 14 other countries, including Australia, Canada, and New Zealand, as well as the United Kingdom.

Gospel singer Tope Alabi released a video of compiled images of the Queen along with a song written in her honour in an effort to pay tribute to her, but many of her fans didn’t like the gesture.

“When I heard the news I was shocked and sad, though it’s better on the other side, I know it is peaceful on the other side, but we are pained you had to leave us this soon. We don’t want you to leave, we didn’t plan to pay tributes to pay this soon, you love everyone and you are so kind” the lyrics of the tribute song reads in part.

Many of her fans made jest of her and crucified her for the act of “eye service”

“I find this hilarious and stupid. You don’t want her to leave, at 96? Please which tribute did you release for the Alaafin of Oyo when he died or even Ada Amaeh the actress, it is Queen Elizabeth you are doing eye service for” one Aanma wrote

“It is as if Queen Elizabeth is from Nigeria cause the way my people dey post the woman ehnn. Oju aye ti ba ti bati gbogbo yin je some people never reach the airport before talkless of going to the woman country iku baba yeye death no cast like this mtchweee ao fe ko lo for person wey her generation No understand Yoruba ewo eleyi tilor” One Damilola wrote
