Rapper Aidepha Mac-Rae ‘Geeblex’ Wrote an Open Letter To CHH Artistes In His Hometown via Instagram @aidepha_macrae


Open Letter (gospel artistes : Benue, Makurdi)- Geeblex Aidepha Macrae

I don’t mean to cause any reverberations considering the fact that i have been tagged ‘controversial’ over the years. But Lemme quickly say this. The concept of “clashing schedules” i don’t think is new to anyone. Gospel shows, concerts, events have been held, videos were shot, a lot went on (In Makurdi, Benue State, specifically) in my absence. But the absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence; I could remember a night i prayed for the success of a particular concert, i knew time or distance wasn’t going to lemme attend physically, but for real, i was there in the spirit. The point is, i get questioned sometimes by close musical fanatics about not showing up, it gets more crazy when i get to see annoying posts on facebook by some insensitive and callous ‘gospel artistes’, about not showing up, i could apparently say were directed to timeless artistes like myself. That makes me want to imagine how much and deep the knife stab to my back went, but they should be glad I’m two classes away from getting baptized. They are prolly quick to judge because of the delusive thinking that “beef” is actually going on between me and couple artistes doing CHH. The fact is, as humans, we interact constantly, there’s tendency to develop conflicting philosophies and ideologies, but that doesn’t mean i would want to sever ties or withdraw any little support i could offer for the expansion of His Kingdom, no matter the dissension. Do you know why there can’t be competition amongst genuine gospel artistes?, its because we all seek to win all souls for one God. Look, i don’t even see my self as a musician anymore, i have more weighty dreams to pursue; to me.. im just an expressionist before the microphone, so spare me the drama. Nevertheless, you can only live freely without worries when you’ve realised you you can’t disassociate criticism from existence. I’d be glad if you have a rethink and stop judging a free spirit with a clean heart- #PeaceOut @aidepha_macrae

Dear Secular Artistes


DEAR SECULAR ARTISTES I understand people misunderstand people, so most of the time i choose to keep my mouth shut. All i see presently are conflicting posts and comments about gospel artistes. Few weeks ago i saw a post on facebook i’d ignore but describe as “Crapola” made by a secular artiste about gospel artistes not supporting secular artistes by sharing links and all that.. Hey, how would you expect me or any other gospel artiste to share songs with contents that conflict with every bit of the message we put out for public consumption. I do not see my self separated from you guys. As long as we have clean spirits and make good music that sends a positive message, we can always support and collaborate with each other. I mean.. I don’t see secular artistes as sinners, and even if anyone thinks they are, that’s not a good reason to keep a distance. we all have choices and everyone has a consequence to bear respectively. Music is meant to heal, to give hope, to bless, to motivate, to inspire, to entertain, but when your expressions become perverse you can’t get support from all people. we have specific audience the shared stuff could get to and it’s obvious 18+ songs with lewd content don’t appeal to them, so respect and understand our decisions and stop calling us hypocrites, we’d only be when we give in and share the filthy stuff. Backclash come alive when you show up with the delusion that there is a line between. Put tribe and religion aside. I’m a ‘christian’ rapper, i also do gospel rap/music. #Peaceout
