Gospel Singer, Tope Alabi has got many people reacting differently for her song of tribute to the late Queen Elizabeth.

News earlier reported that the 96-year-old monarch died on Thursday, 8th September 2022 at the Balmoral Buckingham Palace.

Tope Alabi took to his Instagram page to share a video with photos of the queen accompanied by the new song she composed for her.

The lyrics of the song talks about the queen being in a better place where life is peaceful but people are pained that she has left so soon.

While recalling the good deeds of the Queen, Tope Alabi in the song noted that the world didn’t want the Queen to leave as they had not planned to pay tribute to her soon.

However, many people have began to share mixed opinion on the song released by Tope Alabi as they questioned if she composed any song for the late Alaafin of Oyo on his demise.

Subsequently, others also recalled the past history stating that the Queen did not treat Africa well and do not deserve such a song.
