Recently, photos of Oge Okoye visiting Alph Lukau's church in South Africa got out and this has caused quite a stir amongst Nigerians. It would be recalled that the pastor of this particular ministry has been involved in a lot of scandals. It is for this reason that Oge's visit to his church has been tagged as nearly inappropriate by a lot of her fans.
After suffering the backlash fans meted to her because of this one visit, she took to her page to reveal the reason why she actually visited the church.
The actress who was clearly happy about the thrashing she received from Nigerians said she had actually gone to the church at the behest of her mother. Her mom who was in Spain had seen the pastor minister and she got taken by him.
She wanted the opportunity to meet with the man of God so that she could pray for her sister who was bedridden. To save her mother the stress of such a tedious journey, Oge decided to make the trip to the church, taking her aunt's photo as a souvenir.
That Nigerians interpreted the visit to be something else pissed the actress off and caused her to vent out her frustration at them. Read her post below:
"Good morning Glam FAMILY.........I try to be calm about everything and anything especially when Negativity screams out so loud. I don't try to Calm the Storm,but will only Calm my mind and the Storm will Pass..though i owe no one any explanation as regards to my personal heavenly race but I feel like addressing THIS wild fire.
"I Travelled to see my mum as usual and she told me how she came across the youtube channel of AMI church and that she's been following them ever since because of what God is doing in the church through Pastor Alphalukau. So my mum wanted to visit the church because of her younger sister(My aunt)who is a cancer patient,wheelchair bound and is bedridden.
"Due to Mum's age,I didn't want her making that long journey from Spain to South Africa so I requested for my aunt's pictures and promised her that I would visit the church so I can stand in for her as a point of contact. That was how i visited AMI on the Sunday, 14th of October 2018,last year.
"Go on youtube and see for yourselves. Please Nigerians,Is anything wrong in seeking the face of God or standing in the gap for my sick aunty? How Gullible can people be?Why fabricate stories? Meanwhile how much do you think I will be paid to do the unimaginable?
"God forbid. Whoever said that..May they be visited with the same bitter pill to swallow IJN. Amen. Thank you Lord for all the blessings."
