The rapper who recently released a song titled, in which he predicted the death of four pastors (Bishop Daniel Obinim, Archbishop Duncan Williams, Pastor Chris and T.B Josuah) has come under criticisms from a section of the public.
Speaking on Radio Univers’ mid-morning show, on the motivation behind the song, the rapper said he got the lyrics when he was having fun with his guitar.
“I’m learning how to play a guitar and once I take the guitar, melodies come into my head. And when they come, I start to fix words in them and these are the words that came. Maybe if I dig into my sub-consciousness, I will be thinking of certain stories I have heard along the way, how it has shaped my thinking and all of that. I didn’t really sit down and say I was going to do this song,” he explained.
When show host, Abrantepa, asked if someone will be wrong to say that once he recorded the song, he meant the lyrics in there, Wanlov answered, “No they won’t be wrong; they won’t be right either. Because, at the time I recorded it, I was in total agreement with my perception; but I could become friends with one of those guys tomorrow and I may be sad if something I have predicted comes to pass. At the moment, I wouldn’t have any feeling of remorse if any comes to pass.”

The member of music duo, FOKN Bois, however stated that the lyrics of the song is only a prediction; not a wish.
“Prediction is different from a wish. I just predicted how they will die and not wished them dead. I’m not wishing for them to die. This is the style for which they will die,” he said.
