Controversial Nigerian gospel singer, Lanre Teriba better known as Atorise, has cleared the air on his decision to start performing at night clubs.

Lanre stressed that he sees nothing wrong in performing at night clubs as a gospel musician, saying that it gives him to opportunity to take the word of God to such places his colleagues may find 'ungodly'.

According to him, “I am the first gospel artiste to take God's message of liberation and deliverance through songs to night clubs. I don't see anything wrong in it but it is all to the glory of God.

“I just want people to know that whatever they can enjoy out there, they can enjoy it with God. I perform at parties and I also encourage many gospel artistes to play in parties so they can make a living for themselves.”

The singer also described his wife as an understanding person.

“You just heard me spoke with my wife who doesn't like to be in the limelight and I want to respect her wish by not discussing her on the pages of newspapers. She has heard many things about me but she is a virtuous woman who believes in me,” he told Daily Independent.
