      @sacred Homosapien your pseudo name gives a clear picture of how you can only be.. I bet the little boy’s cuteness makes you feel sorry about yourself? You should learn to appreciate good things when you see one do that it can happen to you. Don’t be bitter!

      Abi? Isn’t it just sad that filths like pastor biodun are the leading majority in most churches? You call them out and fiam they turn around use the bible to say they are not perfect after all.

    Awww… seeing these pictures and familiar faces brings back memories of my former church. This married life sha and following your hubby to his church… not complaining though. Ese looks good and that baby is all shades of cuteness. God bless and keep him always.

    I didn’t know she was on radio – BN any idea what radio station and the radio programme she anchors? Her husband’s voice grates on my nerves, yet he is one of the most popular OAPs in Abuja – I don’t understand how. His voice and his somewhat forced fake accent are annoying IMO.

    @ Tutu, it is news because they are OAPs and their PR people probably sent it to BN.

      @adelegirl, his voice and accent is fake and grates on your nerves? How pathetic and sad your life must really be. I listen to him too you know and he’s one of the most grammatically articulated OAP I have listened to in recent times plus, he’s good at what he does. If his accent offends you, go brush up yours and Learn to be happy and appreciative of people.

      I was going to post a long blistering riposte to your asinine reaction to my opinion on Benny Ark, but you’re irrelevant to me and I’m feeling charitable today, I’m going to say a kind word of prayer for you instead. May God ease the hurt in your life. Ndo o

    • Nkechi N.

      February 23, 2015 at 4:50 pm

      @adelegirl, why don’t you have your PR people send in news about you to BE and let’s see if it will fly…you seem to me to be one of those very talkative, jealous and antagonistic people around. Get a life!

    • adelegirl

      February 24, 2015 at 2:43 am

      Nkechi N, if that part offended you, then you are definitely lacking in intelligence and simple comprehension. I feel for you. Must be difficult to be so obtuse on a forum such as this. Pele dear.

    Congrats o. Is this coza church too? And is it that people no longer give kids nigerian names? Evryth is now kendrick, aliona etc

    • Anon

      February 23, 2015 at 2:37 pm

      They still do very well. He probably has some Nigerian names on his birth certificate. Aliona is a Russian name and Aliona’s Mum (Mrs. O) has Russian heritage, so there goes.

    Congratulations to them! Ese’s face has changed significantly from her pregnancy. She’s a strong lady sha and look at the support her family has given her in everything. Looking at this just makes me see more and more that she did not lie about what happened between her and the COZA pastor. Thank God for forgiveness and His mercies.

    This little boy will go to college and pastor abiodun and his liars at COZA will still be editing robust reply. I love you Ese. You have given some of us the courage to stand up for the truth regardless of whether people believe it or not.

    February 24, 2015 at 10:13 am

    Why would anybody name their kid Kendrick? Whatever did that poor child do to you? I guess ratchet names will never die out. Just as ratchet people wouldn’t.

    • Naomi

      February 24, 2015 at 3:17 pm

      @Ms.A, wish we know what the A stands for or is it Animal?? What is wrong with the name and how is it ratchet? You probably just learnt the word and decided to use it foolishly ” Checkout the meaning of the name before you open your ratchet mouth and speak with such ignorance. When you have yours, call him what you please. By the way, you sound very rachet!!

    • Naomi

      February 24, 2015 at 3:23 pm

      Ms A. It’s obviously evident from your comment that your life is ratchet and empty for you to say so…the parents have chosen to name him as such and it’s none of your business.. by the way,do you know the meaning of ratchet and do they look ratchet to you? I guess you are a sad, sorry life!
