Renowned Nigerian filmmaker Patrick Doyle has asserted that the entertainment industry is under the control of Satan. Doyle made this claim in response to singer Tems’ recent BET award.

It was reported that Tems, a secular musician, won the Best Gospel Award at the 2024 BET Awards held on Monday at the Peacock Theater in Downtown Los Angeles, United States. This unexpected win left many mainstream gospel musicians feeling betrayed and shocked.

In a Facebook post, Doyle addressed the controversy, urging gospel singers to stop seeking validation from the entertainment industry.

“I understand the pain of mainstream gospel artists who feel slighted that an evidently secular musician, Tems, was awarded for Best Gospel Song,” Doyle wrote. “That said, I believe it is about time that committed Christians should stop seeking validation from fickle institutions like the entertainment industry mafia, which by the way, is in the grip of Satan.”
