Nigerian Gospel singer Yinka Alaseyori has reacted to a viral video of her and her crew praying at the Ikoyi collapsed building.
Kemi Filani News earlier reported that a video shared by one Gbenro Adegbola captured the moment Yinka Alaseyori, the developer and many others were singing and praising God on the rooftop of the now collapsed building.
According to Gbenro Adegbola, the developer and the gospel singer held a prayer meeting a few days before the building collapsed.
Reacting to this, Yinka Alaseyori, in a post shared on Instagram, said she had received several tags on the video and people inquiring about her safety.
Yinka Alaseyori said the video is not a recent event, and she was not at the place when the unfortunate incident happened.
