He added that growing up, he never had any option other than to listen to his father because his mother will never pamper against his dad's instructions.
My challenges before I became known
Alfa Jeje Agba said he does other businesses aside from his clerical work because he does not want to steal. He narrated his various challenges during his journey, saying that he tried hard before he gained visibility.
The man stated that he became a trendy Muslim cleric who uses relatable songs to preach because he wants to get his target audience.
Support us with tithes and offerings
According to him, the covetous youths in Islam, posturing as clerics, are those tarnishing the religion. He said he does not use what is more than his income.
Alfa Jeje Agba stressed the need for people to support their clerics in monetary kinds as doing the Lord's work is not an easy job.
