Nigerian church leaders react to John and Love Kumuyi's suspension

The son of the General-Superintendent of Deeper Life, Pastor William Kumuyi, was suspended after his wife wore a wedding dress the church termed 'inappropriate'. If you missed it, read the story here

Church leaders are now reacting to the suspension of John and Love Kumuyi, calling it hypocritical. The General Overseer of Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare said:
“I personally did not see what they have done wrong. A man is entitled to his own authority in his own home.1st Peter Chapter 3. A wife should dress to please the husband and not the members of the church or public. It’s sheer wickedness to the couple, they should leave them to enjoy their honeymoon. They should not squeeze them to the modus operandi of a particular organization. I did not see anything wrong in the wedding. The bride was not naked or dressed inappropriately and  the groom didn’t. Esther the queen was beautifully dressed in the bible to gain the king’s attention. They should not make mountain out of a molehill. I was in the Deeper Life Bible Church for five years and nobody compelled me to dress the way I dressed. My wife was with me in the church though we weren’t married then. She wears earrings and dresses nicely. All this talk about this couple should stop.”

Super Million Hair now in Nigeria...

Intensive research has led to Super million hair – the most advanced method of thickening your hair without the need for surgery or expensive laser therapy. Cutting edge laser technology slices pure organic keratin (the very thing that your hair is made of) in to micro-sized hair fibres. 

These fibres cling and blend in with your existing hair, giving extra volume whilst reducing scalp visibility considerably. Incredibly small ‘vellus’ hairs, thousands of them, sit on what appear to be a ‘bald patch’. These tiny hairs can still attract enough hair fibre to provide full coverage and natural appearance.
So strong is the attraction between your existing hair and Super million hair fibres that even strong winds and rain cannot remove them or cause them to run or stain, it can last for at least 4days when used with hair mist. To remove the hair fibre yourself simply washout with shampoo. Continue..

In Dallas...:-)

I actually mentioned this on Twitter but it just occurred to me that not all my readers are on Twitter, so I better mention it here too. My darling readers, I'm in the US, that's why my blogging has been off and on...but it will definitely become regular as soon as I settle in. I actually came in yesterday.

I'm currently in Dallas. I'm making an appearance at Flavour's show tonight which is being hosted by John Okafor. Then I'm moving to Miami, Orlando, Atlanta and finally New York before returning home. So, if there are LIBers in these areas that will like to say hello, hang out, show me around, have lunch etc...that would be great. Holla at me via email. Kisses!

Photos from Nigeria's first Garden and Flower show..

Oh, my bad! That's a pic of Anita and Andre

My bad! The pic on Paul Okoye's BB display photo I posted earlier is apparently that of his girlfriend Anita and their son Andre and not the other lady Elshamah and her son. (They look so alike..:-))

But the best part about getting this info wrong is that Paul has, for the first time, acknowledged Elshamah and her son. He tweeted that he has never accepted the baby and NEVER will. That's kinda harsh considering no paternity test has been done so far. I found this out a few hours ago.

Anyway, no man in his right senses will deny his own child, so maybe he knows something we don't know, even though Elshamah swears she was a virgin when she met him at 17. The story continues...

Peter Okoye may have been impressed by the N300m (still find it hard to believe that's really the price) champagne he got as a gift from luxury designer, Alexander Amusu, but not his brother, Paul.

A few hours after Peter posted a photo of himself with the luxury drink on Wednesday, Paul updated his BB PM, writing - 'I rather take a pic with a bottle of coke...than that shit!' Lol. See it after the cut
