Fast-rising singer, Odumodublvck, faces criticism after defending Pastor Adeboye amid controversy surrounding the preacher's claim of having tea with God. The backlash ensued following the circulation of a resurfaced video from 2019 where Pastor Adeboye recounted an experience of sharing tea with God during breakfast.
Reacting to the criticism directed at Pastor Adeboye, Odumodublvck condemns Nigerian youths who often criticize the clergyman's speeches. The singer deems it disrespectful to disregard Pastor Adeboye's age and wisdom while lambasting him on social media.
In his statement, he remarks:
“Pastor Adeboye never insulted anyone on this app. You do not see Muslims come out to insult their clerics. Then later we complain that our religion is being stepped on.
Even based on age wise. You cannot talk to your father the way you talk to Pastor Adeboye. And he's older than your father and mother. That's why I never rate you guys on this app. Your double standards choke. – industry machine.”
However, his statement triggers a flurry of reactions from social media users, criticizing him for blindly supporting the preacher's claims.

He was a major supporter of the protest against GEJ. GEJ was voted out and Nigeria became worse, why isn’t he protesting now? The man is a bigot!”
