A Nigerian Pastor, Goodheart Val Aloysuis, has written an open letter to popular singer, Davido, after he raked in over N200 million goodwill donations from friends and fans.
Goodheart in a Facebook post asserted that the singer won’t make heaven if he doesn’t pay tithe from the donated funds.
“Brother Davido if you don’t pay tithe from that money given to you by your friends, I’m afraid you won’t make heaven.”
This has gotten netizens talking online as they slam the pastor for thinking he has a say over who makes heaven and who doesn’t.
Some people also questioned if the singer’s choice to give away the donated funds to orphanages across Nigeria is not better than paying tithe to a church.
