Ooni of Ife wife, Olori Naomi Ogunwusi, has opened up on the criticisms she received in her early days as a preacher of the word of God.
The Queen, while speaking at the Seraphim Media Summit held at Seraph Land, Maba, Ogun State, revealed that people said she sounded as though she was a member of the Cherubim and Seraphim Church.
Revealing that she has always loved the Cherubim & Seraphim church, Naomi Ogunwusi said the people who claimed she preached like a member of the church when she started off at a tender age, worked to bring her down, The Nation reports
“When I began preaching at a tender age, it was strange to the church I worshipped. They said I preached like the people from C&S. I thank you for bringing me here today because I have always wanted to be identified with the people they say I preach like. I love the church so much and I will always speak for you anywhere” she said.
The Ooni of Ife’s wife also told members of the church to shun negative criticisms, which according to her was a deliberate act by certain people to ridicule what the church stood for.
“I rejoice with the church today because of the foundation. When I wanted to learn about indigenous men of God, the first person that came to my mind was the late founder of the church, Moses Orimolade. I want you to know that you are a beautiful brand regardless of what people say about you. You have a beautiful mark of identification; with your white garment, you don’t need any further introduction to anyone.
“We all know that in every original product, there are fake ones. People will always try to bring you down. When people said I was preaching like a C&S member, they were trying to bring me down,” she said.
