Akuchay Responds to Trending News of Featuring “Naked” Dancer in Gospel Music Video

Published

on

Social media was inundated with posts of fast rising Nigerian-Canadian singer and songwriter, Akuchay, employing the services of a so-called scantily dressed dancer in her recently released music video for her hit single YOU ARE GOD.

Apparently, while others were enjoying the worship song and singing praises to God, an eagle-eyed individual was able to spot a ballet dancer in the sensational music video. He made his observation without mincing words by posting the comment, “But we are not to dance halfnaked” (sic).

​​This got people talking on post with them sharing their own views for or against the issue. While many didn’t see anything wrong with the outfit of the ballet dancer and it is the appropriate costume, a few saw it as something that could cause a stir and lead to lust among the brethren.

As fate and faith would have it, popular blogs and social media influencers like Instablog and Tunde Ednut also joined in saying a thing or two on the issue.

However, the artiste in the midst of the storm, Akuchay, has put out a statement via her social media pages (@iamakuchay), reacting to the (non-)issue. See her response below:

“My attention has been drawn to reports on social media about me featuring an half-naked dancer in my recent worship single titled YOU ARE GOD.

I’m glad that the video has gotten more supporters than accusers and I’m grateful to everyone that has said something positive about the song rather than looking for loopholes. Some people did not even watch the full video before condemning. It’s out on YouTube & Facebook and doing well on those platforms by God’s grace.

People like the accusers are the reason Christianity has and continues to be given a bad name. Always so judgemental, self-righteous and full of hate. When last did you study to understand the word of God? If you can’t control your lustful ways as a man/woman, even a fully clothed man/woman will still appear lustful to you.

“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean.

In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness. Mathew 23:27-28

Learn to emulate the ways of Christ Jesus who came in human form to die for us sinners. I’m sure you will be quick to cast the first stone also when it also comes to gay/transgender people. Judge not lest ye be judged! Also take note of Mathew 7:3:5 ooh and definitely Mathew 21:32 because Jesus had you in mind when he spoke of this.

Finally beloved, before you sleep tonight, meditate upon Romans 2:1-3 and 1 John 4:8.

Watch the full video before you condemn.”

​​​​​We would like to hear from you. What’s your view about all this? Was the outfit of the ballet dancer unfit for a Gospel Music Video?

Published

on

GRAMMY nominated, multiple American Music Award, Billboard Music Award and Dove Award-winning band MercyMe has released their long-awaited tenth studio record, inhale (exhale) today. Tomorrow morning, members of the band will be on FOX & Friends to talk about the new project before a pre-taped performance of their new single, “Say I Won’t” is aired.

Last night, SiriusXM – The Message (Ch. 63) exclusively premiered the album on their inhale (exhale) Album Reveal Special, which will be rebroadcast multiple times throughout this weekend. The special was the first place fans were able to hear the album from top to bottom – hearing the story behind each song as told by the band. Afterwards, the band joined SiriusXM listeners in a virtual After-Party in The Message Blue Room event and were joined by special guests featured on the album, Gary LeVox (Rascal Flatts) and Gloria Gaynor.

During the album reveal special, the band was surprised by Melissa Chalos, senior curator of Christian/Gospel with music streaming site Pandora, with a plaque presentation welcoming them into the Pandora Billionaires Club, commemorating over a billion streams of MercyMe songs across platform.

Tonight, The inhale (exhale) Sessions livestream event with MercyMe will begin at 8pm ET, with tickets available HERE

The one of a kind event will allow fans to go behind the scenes as the band performs the songs and celebrates the release of inhale (exhale), all while reflecting on the journey that brought it to life – all from their studio in Nashville. The event will be available on demand for 48 hours past its initial airing.

Leading up to the album release, MercyMe has made several media appearances, including FOX Nation’s special concert episode of Ainsley’s Bible Study, and an incredibly inspirational segment on Good Morning Amercia’s GMA3 with their friend and inspiration behind “Say I Won’t,” Gary Miracle.

With an extensive Billboard feature, CBN News’ Studio 5, and many other press hits this week and coming soon, MercyMe will appear on TBN’s HUCKABEE on May 15/16, and is excited to return to the Grand Ole Opry for a live Circle TV/Livestream performance on July 10, tickets for which are currently on sale at Opry.com.

A favorite at radio for over two decades, it’s no surprise that “Say I Won’t” is already topping the national radio charts – #4 Billboard National Christian Audience, #4 Mediabase Christian Audience, #4 Billboard AC Indicator, #5 Billboard AC Monitored, and #5 Mediabase Christian AC – thanks to support of nearly every Christian station in the country playing the song, including KLOVE, Way FM, KSBJ/Houston, KLTY/Dallas, KFSH/Los Angeles, WFSH/Atlanta, WPOZ/Orlando, KTIS/Minneapolis, KLJY/St. Louis, and WFFH/Nashville.

In support of the single, MercyMe has spoken with 100+ radio stations over the past six weeks – including special appearances on The Morning Cruise (The Joy FM), The Wally Show (WayFM), Chris Fabry Live! (Moody Radio), and an upcoming appearance on the KLOVE Morning Show with Skip and Amy.

In process for over two years, the 16-song collection (produced by Tedd T., Brown Bannister and Jordan Mohilowski) is the latest chapter in MercyMe’s creative adventure, and includes “Almost Home,” a stunningly poignant anthem that topped the charts for a combined total of 17 weeks. There’s also the buoyant “A Little Love” featuring lead vocalist Bart Millard’s close friend Gary LeVox, of the award-winning country super group Rascal Flatts, disco legend and friend Gloria Gaynor on “Brand New,” and “On Our Way,” features Millard’s son Sam Wesley.
