On the 7th and 8th of August 2008, former musician, popular pastor and presidential candidate, Reverend Kris Okotie married Stephanie Henshaw. The wedding was a beautiful celebration of the couple who had both been previously married – Click HERE to view Photos from BN’s Exclusive Feature.
Reverend Kris had been divorced from his first wife for over a decade while Stephanie was a widow. The church which he leads, Household of God, welcomed their leader’s new bride and though she did not have a formal role within the church (as a pastor or choir leader as many Nigerian pastors wives take on), Stephanie was well-loved by the congregation.
Therefore, when Pastor Kris announced on Sunday, 23rd of June 2012 that “Stephanie and I are no longer married. We have separated. You can see she’s not in church today. It’s due to irreconcilable differences…you should please respect our wishes at this time because there is no going back.“, it caused a great deal of confusion and discussion.
No additional details have been released on the specific cause of the split. Regardless of the Reverend Okotie’s statement, we hope they can work it out.
