Congratulations to On air personality and writer Ese Walter who tied the knot with Cool FM Abuja presenter Benny Ark today Saturday 15th February 2014 in the Federal Capital City.

The bride was beaming in a red lace dress at the private ceremony, while her groom was dapper in a black suit.

Ese Walter made headlines in August 2013, when she wrote an article about her alleged affair with COZA pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo. (click here to read)

    Finally! Ese Rugbere settles down. BTW d guy attends Coza too so i really dont understand her ties with that church. I attended coza a long time in abj and so i kno d guy wella. Technical dept. Always giving testimonies. Ese abeg calm down for d coza mara!

      I don’t think Benny Ark still attends Coza. How could he after all that went down with his now wife? I think they bonded over the Coza palaver though so I can understand how you see that there is still a link. Everything happens for a reason even the good book says He will cause ALL to work together for our good. Now that they are married, the journey ahead is still far. I hope they can stay out of the limelight for a bit so that undue interference will not mar their joy, especially as most people seem to have an opinion on Ese and Benny, individually and as a couple. I wish them all the best!

      Benny no longer attends COZA, he too had a fallout with the pastors there, cos of their womanizing and all….

    So happy 4ese. She is forever free and has nothin to hide or be ashamed of any more. On d other hand, ciza pastor and his followers are still consulting Amadioha, bcuz I know definitely, it is not the almighty God they are waiting for an answer from.

    Happy for her jare. Now Ese, stop seeking publicity and focus on your marriage and make it work. You deserve every bit of happiness. And as for the COZA pastor, you can mock your congregation, but you cannot mock God……

    There is too much limelight on this marriage. Hope it goes well for them. Come to think of it……
    Guys, will you want to marry someone with all the kinda press this lady has (especially if you are Benny Ark).

    Ese should stop putting herself in the spot light!

    @theace if you are female and married, can you tell us the amount of women you screwed before you got married or if you are male you want to tell me that you do not have a side chick aside you girlfriend? STOP JUDGING!!!. Pastor biodun of coza is a man worshiped by his congregation so if he plays on a lady to get her in bed, any lady might have fallen for it and its not only ese he has played on. i admire her courage on speaking out about a pastor who is damaging life of young women in his congregation and do not use that to judge her.

    February 28, 2014 at 12:19 pm

    and people are still attending this church… once again human beings have mob mentality. I remember seeing a signboard somewhere in lagos saying that “if you are a beautiful lady and u are not a member of this church then u are slacking or sumthing like that. smhhhhhhhhh

    Happy for Ese, I wonder why you all feel the need to judge pastor biodun or his congregation, r u God? Be careful before your words lead you to destruction
