He said: “For those of you, who are comedians, try all you can not to make fun with pastors in your comedy. Because you are going to see some comedians whose lives would be a comedy. This is what the lord said I should tell you. Because a lot of them who does such will have their lives reduced. Which means you are going to see them and say; is this you? Is this what your life has become?

“Don’t joke with sacred things. Pastors occupy sacred place. You must know what to joke with and what not to joke with.”

Pastor Chris is a popular Nigerian gospel minister and one of the most influential preachers in Africa. In 2014, he was listed as one of the top 10 richest pastors in the world.
