Facing The Music: Spyro Unpacks Controversy Surrounding Harvesters Church Performance



Nigerian artist Oludipe David, better known as Spyro, has found himself at the center of controversy after performing at the Harvesters International Gospel Center’s Christmas carol service in Lagos State on Sunday.
