Yesterday, January 31st, 2023, Seyi Vibez via his official Instagram page shared a video of his incoming song that has a Quran verse as its lyrics.
Undoubtedly, Seyi Vibez has managed to create a highly marketable name for himself in the Nigerian music industry with his latest Album titled, Billion Dollar Baby that houses 11 tracks.
The album has several hit songs that include, Chance, Darling, Bullion Van, among others. He obviously shows that he is a Muslim as his lyrics in the nostalgic bop dubbed, “Kun Fa Yakun” has Quran verse being recited in it by him and that was just the beginning.
In the snippet of the forthcoming song shared by Seyi Vibez on his IG page, the singer kickstarted the track with a Quran recitation.
The Quran recitation reads Suratul Al-Alaq (Quaran 96) and starts from verse 9 then recite upwards.
Meanwhile, netizens have trooped to the comment section with mixed reactions as many Muslims strongly tackle singer Seyi Vibez for using a Quaran reciter in his forthcoming song as they advised him to remove it noting that it’s absolutely nothing but a sin.

omar_sznn: Please stop using Quran verses in your songs.
boubakar_sadeek: Qur’an verses for song is bad fr ❌❌.
sulaimanabdulbasit5: my problem is he should atleast remove the verses there cos that’s doesn’t make sense combining Quran recitation to a song that would be probably played at a club or unholy places.
abu.princo: Seyi please don’t add Quran content to you music.
zarsbby333: this is very I mean VERY disrespectful to us Muslims,our religion and the Quran,you should respect yourself and remove the Quran as your intro.may Allah guide you.
olachillex: Stop adding Qur’anic verses to your music ,What correlation does it have ?
rukayyaaaa.a: Nooooo this is inappropriate,very very inappropriate. How were you okay with adding the verses of the holy Quran to your music???? How does that make sense to you ?????
ayoabdullahii: Salaamu alaykum warahmatullah wabarakatuhu. It’s really better we keep mute and not say anything than be ignorant about what we don’t know. In Islam there is nothing like I THINK. If you don’t have any Qur’an verse or any Hadith that justifies our argument, then let’s avoid being ignorant about it. The fact that most of us still sing songs doesn’t mean it’s still not haram, may Allah guide everyone one of us to the right path.
oyin_mix_mola: Abeg make we rest! We should be proud he is promoting Islam ☪️.
itz_queen_zeee: This is not good 👩🏽🦯using The Quran to make music is the worst thing anyone can do that’s an insult to our religion.
abu_farhan009: Bruh if you no see anybody tell u na rubbish be dis why you Dey include Quran verses in your worldly song! Dis is not even making sense in anyway Islam is against dis totally don’t be deceived!
iam_ooni: Those calling people who condemn this extremist hmmmm, Islam is straightforward either you’re ready to listen or not people who know the right thing will say it Quran verse is different from Arabic language let’s get that, using it for a song that would be played in clubs, toilets and some other forbidden places seems not accepted.
