Ola ‘Kiya, Reporting

OONI of Ife, His Imperial Majesty, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, says he’s a “deep-rooted” member of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG).

The formost Yoruba monarch, however, did not mention the parish he attends, but “hoped it remained so” as a member.

He was speaking at the Thanksgiving Service held at the Redemption Hall Parish of RCCG, Effurun, in Uvwie Local Government Area of Delta State on Sunday.

The church service was in celebration of the 50th birthday anniversary of the wife of a notable Prince of Warri Kingdom, Yemi Emiko, Princess Kathy.

The Ooni of Ife, in a somewhat mini sermon, charged Christians to show gratitude to God in all circumstances.

The monarch, who took no fewer than six wives in 2022 alone, not done, wowed the congregation with the rendition of the popular gospel chorus: “Every living soul, praise the Lord,” to the admiration and astonishment of the congregants.

He stressed that being alive was enough reason to praise and thank God.

“The mere fact that you are alive is enough to praise God Almighty. God is real and that is why I’m here today to celebrate with Pastor Kathy; to celebrate with the family of Prince Yemi Emiko.

“In every situation you find yourself, put God first and be happy. Today gives you an opportunity to make people around you smile,” he admonished.

Serenading the love radiating between the celebrant and her husband, Prince Emiko, the revered monarch said it (their love) is significant of God’s goodness.

Speaking on his membership is RCCG, the Ooni of Ife further disclosed that he is a “deeply rooted” member of the RCCG and hoped it remained so!
