New: Snoop Dogg’s Gospel Album Tops Billboard – See Response To Critics & New Video

 

American rapper Snoop Dogg is coming off the release of his first ever gospel album called Snoop Dogg Gospel album which landed him Number 1 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums chart last week.

Following the release, Snoop decided to come through this past Easter weekend and share the official video for his Charlie Wilson-assisted record “One More Day.” Directed by Dylan Brown, the video finds Snoop Dogg, Wilson and others joining a father in prayerful vigil for the recovery of his daughter who had overdosed on drugs, a story Charlie himself can relate to.

“I’m humbled by all the love and support for the album,” Snoop Dogg said of the project’s success. “I made this album to spread love and positivity around the world. I’m blessed and grateful to have worked on this project with some of my favorite artists, people who I truly admire.”

“Uncle Charlie has always been a big inspiration for me … his testimony and what he’s overcome. This project wouldn’t be complete without him,” Snoop said on their collab.

A fire outbreak has razed the first ECWA Church Complex in Gusau, Zamfara State, Associate Pastor of the church, Mr. Micah Liti, said on Monday.

He said there was no loss of lives or injuries, adding that “we lost property worth millions of naira and important things including our valuable documents. We thanked God with the response of the state Fire Service in putting out the fire.’’

Abdullahi Jibo, the Deputy Director in-charge of Fire Prevention and Public Enlightenment of the State Fire Service Department, confirmed the incident and appealed to the public to always ensure fire safety.

New: Pastor Refuses Communion For Church Members Without PVC

Pastor Philip Igbinijesu; Word Assembly

Pastor Philip Igbinijesu of the Word Assembly has declared that any member of his church without a Permanent Voters Card (PVC) will not be allowed to partake in the church’s communion.

The cleric made the declaration in short video uploaded on YouTube on Friday, March 30. He said those who do not have voters card should sit down when other members are taking the communion in church.

Pastor Igbinijesu said Peter Obi became governor of Anambra state after a Catholic archbishop issued a similar instruction in the state.

He said those talking and praying for Nigeria but had no PVC’s were doing so in vain, adding that individuals without voters card were enemies of Nigeria.

Twale Remix

Florocka

[Chant] Verily verily you are good,
Verily verily you are good o,
Somebody shout Halleluyah,
Halleluyah Amen

[Chorus] Kabiyesi Olu orun, I have come to give you twale
To give you worship
Kabiyesi Olu orun, I have come to give you twale
To give you worship

[Verse] If I was a little child, I would sing and shout for joy
If I was a stallion o, I would use my four horse power
If I was a shining star, I would illuminate everywhere
And if I was the son of a governor
I would make everybody troway salute o
And if I could control the times, I would go back to the garden of Eden
I will give you the worship that only you deserve, YES!
I will look for beautiful names like Alade wura o
Yes I will go on soun and patewo iye Gbe oruko re ga o

[Chorus] [Bridge] Only a fool will look into the heavens and say there is no God
Only a mad man will look into the sea
And claim that the fishes are a mistake
Even the baba alawos can testify that there is only one Jehovah
So who are you to tell me that my Yahweh, my Tsidkenu doesn’t exist
He is a consuming fire o,
Yes He is the Lion of the tribe of Judah He alone shall I serve
For the rest of my days

Lyrics:Time to dance_Loyiso Bala

Lyrics: Time to dance

Loyiso Bala

 

There’s a time for peace
A time to get ready for war
Time for playing games
At times we don’t play at all
Time for making love
A time to make love no more
There’s a time for everything
And we can do nothing at all

There’s a time to weep
A time to laugh A time to mourn
Until the break of dawn

Now is the time to dance

At times we kill each other
Then take a little time to heal
At time we talk forever
At times we say nothing at all
There’s a time to love A time to hate
There’s a time for everything
And we can do nothing at all

Don’t give up the fight
Soon we’ll see the light
Yes, someday we’ll die
But soon we’ll rise again

Now is the time to dance

Oh Oh

We’re gonna sing till the walls fall down
We’re gonna sing every night and day
We’re gonna praise him with everything
We’re gonna shout Call out his name

Jesus you’re the King of kings
Jesus you’re the Lord of lords
Jesus you’re the ruler of all
We praise your name
Your name
Your name

Snoop Dogg: ‘I Thought Church Was Supposed To Welcome Sinners

Snoop Dogg: ‘I Thought Church Was Supposed To Welcome Sinners

Snoop Dogg has some strong words for people who throw shade at his recent foray into Gospel music. The gangsta rap legend released a 32-track opus called Bible of Love that featured gospel heavyweights like Tye Tribbett, Fred Hammond, and B. Slade (formerly known as Tonex)–now the #1 Gospel album on the Billboard charts.

Although Bible of Love snuck up on us, the gospel greats that joined Snoop to produce the project have vouched for the rapper, saying that the work is coming from a real place. Snoop also has church roots: i.e. his mother, Beverly Broadus, is an evangelist who travels and preaches. So, while Bible of Love, is a surprise for many of us. For Snoop, the project is a “return home,” a phrase he uses several times in a recent interview.

Even so, some people are having trouble welcoming the Doggfather into the fold. Snoop sets the record straight on his motivations for the project and what critics can do with their opinions. “I thought church was supposed to welcome sinners,” Snoop says to TV One after his performance at this year’s Stellar Awards. He continues:

If the church was full of saints it wouldn’t be right. So if you find someone trying to find their way back home, the natural thing to do is to be warm welcoming, open your arms and say “Brother, we accept you for who you are and what you’re going through. Come as you are. We know you’ve been doing wrong and you want to get right and we want to help you get right.” We’re not gonna’ throw stones on you when you’re trying to get right and walking back into the church house. That’s what’s running people out the church right now as we speak.His theology isn’t pristine but he’s not wrong either.

Sure. There is something to be said about the necessary consequences of salvation: that is, growth in holiness. And Paul has some advice about new believers not getting into leadership in the body of Christ too quickly (1 Timothy 3:6).

But then there’s also all of Jesus’ teachings and parables about religious know-it-alls and nitpickers who are so obsessed with pointing out the sins of their neighbors that they don’t even realize that they–themselves–are not entering the kingdom (Luke 18:9-14). Snoop’s words also remind other Christians not to be the proverbial “older brother” in Jesus’ Good Samaritan Parable.

The rap icon says that if the architects of the genre don’t have a problem with him reppin’ for the Lord then no one else should. “And if you do what’s happenin?” he asks rhetorically, but his body language says “You can catch these hands if you got’ sum’n say.”

At the end of the day, Snoop joins a long tradition of black artists who have muddied the boundaries between the sacred and the secular, including Sam Cooke, Al Green, and Ray Charles. But he also joins a long line of complicated biblical men: like the Apostle Paul who had been a terrorist before writing most of the New Testament, or King David–a man that God forbade from building the temple because he had too much blood on his hands (1 Chronicles 28:3).

As one of our writers, Mai Perkins, said in her coverage of Snoop’s album, “Bible of Love challenges Christians to check their judgments at the door. At the end of the day, whether you love or hate the idea of him making a gospel album, Snoop is praying for you.”
