    Their church their rules shey? A little more research might have gone a long way.

      If she is a true member or if her husband attends the church, they would have been told the rules of the church during counseling. The issue is not about their rules. If you have decided to be a member, then you need to know what is expected of you on your wedding day. Eg. You can’t go to some churches with hair not covered. If you choose to join them,I expect you to cover your hair.

      Isn’t Toke Makinwa a member of MFM. Make up, weave on, breasts on show everyday. She took her marriage to Moorehouse Hotel when it was time to get married. One rule in the church, another rule outside of it. They don’t wear weaves or make up in that church. Do everything outside of the church and all will be well. Its called hyprocriscy, if you think God only sees you when you are in church but if those are the rules, then those are the rules. Obey them.

      I thought I read natural hair somewhere? So what’s wrong wiv that for them to cut off? I can understand the make-up part.

      The tweet the ignorant and biased busybody photographer sent out CLEARLY says:: “”MFM church mommies CUT my bride’s HAIR ATTACHMENT.””

      I CAN’T understand even the makeup part. If you think women in the Middle East during the time of Jesus did not use kohl, facial markings etc. then you are dreaming and imposing the standards of today’s ridiculous evangelical churches on the past.

      There really is no need for research. She would have been told the dos and don’ts before he Wedding. They even go as far as inspecting your gown. You would have been told point blank that attachments and make-up would not be allowed. I don’t understand why this guy is being unneccessarily emotional and raising unnecessary dust.

      See ehn, nobody would force you to marry in a certain church. If you are not comfortable with the rules, go somewhere else. Really… it’s that simple.

      After your reception, if you decide to paint your face red and green or attach any thing to your hair, no one would stop you. But when you’re in the church, there are doctrines. If you cannot abide by them, go somewhere else. I repeat, It is not a must to marry in a particular church.

      It’s not a must but that was so unnecessary. Churches that do such things turn people away from church and the love of God. There is no where in the Bible that it is written that one should not have hair extensions if they do cut it off. This is just crazy and by defending it you are being an acomplis. I don’t know what religion you are from but that is not what Christianity stands for. Christmas loved is even when we were sinners and not having hair extensions is not going to change the fact that Christmas loves that bride. We need to start showing people love and leading them to Christ. If the church doesn’t love them the world will do that and that is so sad. Christians and these so called churches need to wakeup we are meant to bring people to God and not away from Him ?? God help us

      You have said it all….my dad is a pastor in mfm…
      I refused to we’d there cause I know the rules and couldn’t do without make up on my wedding day….I also had a particular style for my hair in mind which I did.
      I wedded in another church which allowed all these apart from my gown that was inspected.
      I went home happy.
      Mayb she felt they were joking……make she sorry

      Exactly!!! I used to be an MFM member and I know they have their rules, some branches are more stern than the others so some brides get away with it. I knew I wouldn’t want to get married there because of d rules. So I am sure they were told in marriage classes, d guy should stop ranting!

      Nigerians don’t change I swear. I went through every comment and y’all are blaming the bride.
      Even if the bride did what she did, so a supposed house of God(where we aren’t supposed to discriminate or be hypocrites) took a pair of scissors and chopped off her hair or the attachment ? Is that what getting married is about ? You wiped off her make up because it is going to hinder Gods blessings on her marriage. As Christians we really need to reevaluate what it means to be a Christian. It’s not like she was showing cleavage or wearing something that was inappropriate , it’s attachment and make up that’s the problem abi? Smh
      Abi its people that’s abiding by the rules and going to the church . Attachments are synthetic , so I don’t wanna hear oh it’s another human beings hair . What is wrong with attachments Biko? Someone from MFm please explain. Because I am a Christian and nothing such as attachments or having my eyebrows done negatively affects my relationship with baba God. The heart of man is wicked. Even in the house of God. And we often wonder why other religions yimu @ us. We are doao darn hypocritical and judgmental .if the church wasn’t comfortable with it. Turn her away. Instead you chopped her hair off. And she sat down too! Lol. Well. …. abi am
      I over reacting ni?
      I’m down right tired of Nigerians hypocritical ways, yet in the dark when no one is watching they are worse than those who don’t even know God!
      It is well

      Actually the house of God is very discriminatory (money changers ring a bell?), my bigger question is why are we believing some random internet stranger without pictorial evidence.

      If she really was assaulted, SUE!!!!!!!

      Walahi you said everything I wanted to say!!! Nigerian Christians are MAJOR hypocrites!! There is not an ounce of Christianity in them. When I was getting married, I also had a group of “mummies and daddies” waiting in the sidelines to ruin my day but my mother destroyed their plans. Hmmm, I feel sorry for all of you that don’t have a personal relationship with God o

      As anyone thought for a moment that she and the husband-to-be may not be members of this church. In Nigeria, where most couples have to get married at the bride’s parents church, it is quite possible that the couple are not members of the church. So she might not be privy to the necessary rules of the church. I, for example, got married in my mum’s church (a different branch of Foursquare church from my dad at the time),E-counselling was done with Daystar Christian Center (My hubby’s church). Although I grew up “Foursquarian” I had no been in the church in years (I mean over a decade).
      Thankfully, Foursquare does not have any rules or regulations that would have ended up in some kind of drama. I don’t have any chill when it comes to things like this but I can assure you NOONE is touching my hair or eyes. I trust my male cousins and my uncles never never. I also trust my parents not to put us in that kinda situation either. At best, we will have party and go home a beg, that’s what most people come for anyway and if pastoral blessing is important to you then get a pastor to bless you at the reception or later. I hope this story is false though because that will be a nightmare for the bride.

      Look who is going on twitter to complain as a woman, anything happen these days, people go to twitter, people loosing thier brain over modern and social ways. Part of what the church which include mfm is fighting.

      Mr husband, they are helping you, you are complaining and encouraging her to give them 3hour, giving her a bad idea and power, for the woman she is, she will do this back to you, when she start cheating on you and they you will run to church for help…smh for u husband

      See mumu! So it’s hair and makeup that will make her cheat eh. Pastors dat sleep with sisters in the church nkor evn in the so called MFM undercover dat u dunno nkor.. I dunno wat church dat is anyway. But My dear! Just goan pray to God for wisdom and understanding…… u need Jesus, not church cos many of des churches are false, with false prophets and teachers. Some even act like they know more than God himself . Helping ni. Weather u barb moromoro with vaseline as ur powder or Brazilian with Mac ni when the trumpet shall sound, we shall see all the evil dat u’all ve bin doing under the name of church (hypocrites). Then we shall know which is worse. the evil dat men do is in thr mind and not thr hair
      They hv cut hair………I hope they shaved her mind too.

      Wow Wale your ignorance is appalling. If you read the post, before making assumptions , you will see the husband saying give them 3 hours means be patient. You just saw what you wanted to see. Dude this isn’t about your ego. Please get over yourself. If he let’s her rule, how is it anyone’s business. It’s their house.

      In Islam Alcohol is forbidden so if you go to a “real” Islamic wedding and they destroy your expensive bottles of Champagne will you rant at their beliefs???
      You want the covering of MFM prayers but you don’t want to keep their rules Nonsense!!!
      I go to MFM and when I’m going I follow their rules, no makeup, no long painted nail etc!!!
      The bride is to blame.

      November 13, 2016 at 4:55 pm

      “You want the covering of MFM prayers but you don’t want to keep their rules Nonsense!!!” . Bloody hogwash! This is what happens when people replace Christ with church establishments and religious doctrines. I had no idea that churches operate on such authoritarian level o. If you don’t do what we want, they we wont cover you with our prayer. Does this not defeat the whole purpose of Christianity? Was Christ not the one that made his love and grace free for all? @ Mama, you think Christ is doing trade by barter with his grace?

      The heart of man is just wicked. The bride should have known better, but the church women were just so happy that someone had broken their rules. It was the perfect opportunity for them to unleash the wickedness that already lurks in their judgemental and dark hearts.

      BTW, we all have direct access to God through prayer. Dont let anyone or church play God in your life! Nobody or church has a special kind of covering. MFM or ABC prayer or anything cannot cover you. Your genuine heart, grace and forgiveness from Christ is what all you need.

      No body will ever destroy your drinks, all you just need to do is respect the clerics, do not put it at their front, they will do whatever they came there to do and go, I’ve never seen a Muslim functions be it wedding, naming, or funerals where such things happens. My own though though.

      During POWER MUST CHANGE HAND PROGRAM (live Transmission Through Satellite) the GO announced from the Pulpit that as long as you want to worship with us (MFM) you follow the rules. Indecent dressing is not allowed. What are iindecent dressing? (1, Women wearing trousers, 2, Wearing clothes exposing sacred parts of the bodies nd above the knee, 3, wearing of attachment, head not covered, mascaras face nd hawk like fingernails etc are not acceptable and all this are against the doctrine of the Bible. The GO categorically said MFM is not looking for bench warmers or Church goers that if you are not pleased you can look for other Church that can accommodate you. All said and done all this are in the bible. And JESUS said BLESSED ARE THEY THAT HEARD MY WORD AND KEEP THEM. Finally, as regards the bride I believed there is marriage councillor who is there duty to right the wrong and do necessary correction before the wedding proper. GOD bless you all.

I love their prayers I love their doctrine, But I wear earrings… Definitely not getting married there. An Anglican from birth.

      Excuse me! I attend Mfm and I dont dress like a mad person abeg.
      Why do you get to question our hair/or lack of make up choices?
      When did that stop being a personal decision?
      If you have ever attended one of our services especially Power must change hands which is interdenominational, you would see that people who wear extensions or makeup aren’t discriminated against.
      They plenty wella. Except if you are coming for deliverance then you have to remove it coz it isn’t allowed.

      November 12, 2016 at 9:40 pm

      Thank you. I also attend MFM.
      There are rules and regulations in every establishment, be it work, school, church etc.
      I work in a bank that also has a dress code, colours acceptable, mode of dressing, even hair colour allowed.
      I attend church and I knew dere code of dressing before hand. Which includes not wearing of trousers, covering ur hair with a scarf, hat etc.
      I wear make- up and I wear jewellery.
      The only thing is I dress decent. I wear mostly dresses and believe me I’m fashionable. But I do know what is decent for church. Be it MFM or any church, I dress decent.
      I also attend House on the Rock lekki, but MFM sometimes when I just feel I need dat intense prayer life.
      i don’t know if MFM lekki is same as Agege.
      I’m not getting this story. Was her hair covered? Bcos that is a major specification.

      I mistakenly liked your comment. Why would you say a certain set of people dress like mad people simply because it doesn’t meet your “standards”
      And how exactly is the “sane” way of dressing.

      It’s just amazing how people judge deeper lifers and people that dress in that kind of way and in the same vein complain about being judged by them.

      Well I get that some people are just uncouth and nasty. But really… it’s not okay.

    Simple thing
    Abide by their rules
    After church you can paint all you can on ur face
    I had a friend who wedded dere
    We only used white powder on our faces
    They asked us to even reduce the lipgloss
    They say these things before your wedding
    You show them your gown
    It’s actually her fault because I’m sure she thinks she can play a fast one on them
    Those women are vicious really anyway I feel bad for her
    Such embarrassing situation is heartbreaking

    • Bisola

      November 12, 2016 at 7:58 pm

      Thank you my dear.
      She tried to play a fast one on them by attaching natural hair which looked natural so as to deceive them . I think, that was the issue. You can see she is wearing earrings in the pics which apparently wasn’t an issue.
      I think this particular Branch may be very strict or she offended the church mothers ? because I attend Mfm and in all my years there, I have never seen or heard of anything being removed from a brides hair or face.
      If you like do your face how you like, nude makeup or attachment or whatever, na you sabi. The worst is they will give you side eye, but if you aren’t a worker they will just ignore you.
      Their own is the gown which they inspect , and being sure he/ she is God’s will.

      Having said that, I do feel for the bride. She must have felt bad. She should just have done her homework very well, or consulted others who got married there.

    So I attend MFM. I’ve been a member almost all my life. But I’ve already told myself I’m not getting married in MFM. No way. My aunt got married earlier this way, I was one of the bridesmaids but I couldn’t go in because of my hair. My aunt didn’t make her hair. After the service in church, she now did her make up before the reception. Me, I can’t do that one. There are other churches.

    I also happen to know alot of mfm people who are louder than this……..
    And you the bride, why did you not go to the MFm on lekki epe express way? Maybe those ones would have been more accepting…..
    Anyway, I just can’t deal with a church intefering in this barbaric manner….

      November 14, 2016 at 5:43 pm

      Fanatical??? But if your office tells you to dress a certain way, you’ll follow the rules to a T. If you have respect for God, and fear Him, it won’t seem too fanatical. No one forced her to wed there. I got married there at the headquarters, but live abroad. I didn’t have any hair extensions either plus no jewelry and I did not die. You guys act as if your marriage won’t succeed if you don’t come out looking like a water color painting. My marriage is still going strong. MFM in Nigeria, not abroad because the ones abroad compromise, will tell you not to wear all these items. They’ll inspect your dress etc. Simple rules. If you don’t like, go somewhere else. I’m not defending MFM but just wondering why simple rules can’t be followed

  14. Why

    Like seriously @Tosin Gbella, is this suppose to be news??? The bride attended marriage classes and still made her hair to the church? To prove what biko?. Your Boss will tell you not to wear native on week days and you obey, do not make colorful hairstyles and yet you still obey. The bride should not even lie that she never knew the church rules pulease.

    So I’m guessing the bride and groom were aware of MFM’s rules. But hey, I think they probably thought they’ll be more lenient on their rules. I went to MFM for 3 weeks and told my self, nahhh! No point pretending to be who I’m not. Some people I know maintain same appearances outside the church but I can’t. I feel sorry for the bride, but at least most now are aware of MFM’s rules

  18. Mawi

    But everyone knows that MFM never allows extensions & makeup in their premises na. I don’t attend the church but I know this cause they are very audible against such. So how come an intending couple weren’t aware? Abi the babe wanted to prove stubborn (hence the natural hair look extension)
    It’s their church & their rules. You have to obey or find somewhere else. Shikenan! She brought this on herself honestly.

    Abeg let MFM rest. The bride is fully aware of the rules. Ur wedding dress must be checked plus no make-up. It’s even in Deeper life and Assemblies of God. Even Pregnancy test will be conducted on you. Winners didn’t we’d my aunt coz she’s pregnant. She’s currently doing her trad today and her church wedding which is next week Saturday will be done at one deliverance ministry.

    Pls stop all this castigation. I attend Watchman and their rules is out of this world but I won’t get married there. Dominion City, HOTR or David Christian Centre here I come.

    Abide by the rules or move out of the church. It’s as simple as anything and if u r getting married in a church to please your parents, also try and abide by the rules. Simple!!!

    A bride in my church was sent back coz the dress she submitted was different from what she wore. She was sent back on her wedding day. What did she do? She knows the rule so she ‘jejely’ xchanged with her maid of honour and went it. The maid of honour had to stay outside. She was the only one without a maid of honour.

    U no like the church, Waka comot. No be by force.

    • Truth

      November 13, 2016 at 1:13 pm

      I’ve been going through this comments and I see you are very attached and invested to this subject but you do have to admit that cutting of the hair was extreme, a covering would have sufficed because at the end of the day, the church is actually interested in seeing to it that members do not break their rules and the way I see it is not for the good of the person but so that the world’s perception of them being against worldliness is still intact.. Everything is about Vision & Perception if a scarf was provided the hair would have been covered and voila problem solved… now they have ruined her hair, and created a hurt in her soul thereby loosing a soul from their flocks. Jesus Christ teaching reveals that if a Shepard has a 100 sheep and 1 goes astray he leaves the 99 and look for that 1. This “so called mummies” would be the death of the church. The church is based on compassion love and tolerance and what they’ve displayed rules or not is fanaticm and radical behavior.

      I was born into a church like this with all of the rules so trust me when I tell you, many of this so called people don’t understand what they are doing, their interpretation of Christianity is not based on true Christianity. Am not self-righteous by anyway but I know that if you break any organisations dress code you are given a warning nobody comes to cut off your dress, because if they did they could be sued.

      Now for the bride it would be devastating and something she would never forget, your wedding day is the best day of your life but well… I do believe she should have adhered to the rules or at least covered her hair. If she didn’t have all those fancy jewelries on it wouldn’t have been so obvious and she would have passed her 3 hrs at the church and slayed at the reception.

      So both parties are to blame not one above the other.

      Note that rules have been broken and this is because it didn’t sit well with the next generation, no rule is set or cast on stone but the love of Christ is the love of Christ. Compassion, love, tolerance etc are the bedrock of Christianity and should be the bedrock of every church.

    Lool. You will come from bathroom ni o.

    Wó, churches and their wahala.
    I went through hell when I wanted to get married cos I wanted an outdoor wedding, WHICH I WAS TOLD WAS IMPOSSIBLE for no genuine reason. No one understood why. My church o, husband’s church o, parents churh o. All of them. I was angry and disappointed. They even thought I was pregnant and was subjected to pregnancy test. That I was to have come even before doing Family Introduction….and all other nonsense
    The beaurocracy in church is crazy,You find people who just feel unnecessarily important. To see pastors sef na war.
    You are subjected to a lot of bullshit actually.
    One is that you can’t pick your wedding date, they have to decide.
    2. That you have to be a church member- In that you must have gone through a certain programme prior to that, as if when I was paying my tithe and offering anyone asked if I was a member ?
    12 weeks compulsory pre-marital counselling.
    Pregnancy test-drive to be done twice.

    The one that ticked me off was being asked who in church knew about my relationship, as in which Pastor or Minister. I was weak lol

    It wasn’t even so much about the rules, it was about a certain attitude they carried around. Very stinking one.
    We finally got married at the Registry and then a reception.

    Been well over a year now, and my marriage is going on fine.

    One can’t fight them, if u can’t abide just find alternative measures. Saves u a lot of crap

      November 13, 2016 at 3:11 am

      @kikelola, you are “”nonsensical”” in your lack of respect and lack of intelligence and ability to judge objectively. Rules are rules. NO intending couple is left unaware of the rules PRIOR to their marriage and of the church’s strict adherence to those rules and the consequences of disobedience PRIOR to the wedding day by MFM. Non-MFM members know about MFM rules, about Deeper Life rules, about RCCG rules and practices, wedding day and otherwise, how much those who go through the 12 weeks COMPULSORY pre-marital/pre-wedding day classes. Yet, AFTER all this, someone thinks they can be ‘smart’ and smarter than the church that has been conducting weddings for decades and has seen all sorts of brides, grooms, families, etc and experienced all sorts of situations.

      NO ONE is compelled to marry in MFM or any other church. You choose a church, you choose its rules.

      Hypocrites commenting here go to work in corporate organisations where they have to abide by strict dress codes (and do abide RELIGIOUSLY by them) or be ready to face the consequences.

      When children disobey, and deliberately, knowingly, and trying to be cunning, knowingly flout something/instructions they have been given and told painstakingly over and over drummed into their little skulls, they get their just desserts. You do not spare the rod. When supposed adults decide to behave like children as such, they get what their behaviour deserves; they get the consequences fitting to their actions.

      I don’t know when church is now rigid enough to be compared to a corporate organisation. In case you don’t know, what they did was de-humanizing cutting someone’s hair for what just to prove a MUTED point. The corporate organisation you use as comparison if you flouted their dress codes, will they shred the dress? The worse they could have done is turn her back not being aggressive.

    There’s something fundamentally wrong with anyone that attended marriage classes yet decided to do as it pleases. We keep testing the limits of institutions hoping they’ll accommodate our hostile attitude towards set rules. If you’re getting married in a church, play by their rules, the least you can do is obey the church rules. The church should have canceled the wedding. When you take your feeling of importance to another level, this is what happens. You just think you can get away with everything….

Many have been taken to Hell and Heaven via dreams, visions and even in comas. The best is to research online and pray for deeper revelation than lambast the church in question.

    Respect for set rules would save you embarrassments in life. You need to wake up, there’re set rules that you must work towards living up to. As a young lady or man, your success depends on how well you can work with existing institutions to achieve your end. Stop the hostilities and start embracing the needful, for that’s the only way you’ll not feel ostracized. We must grow to change the system but to do that, we must blend in else the system would spit you out. So from church to your office,find a way to work with the old to develop the new. Thank you.

      November 13, 2016 at 3:51 am

      @Ifeyinwa, I don’t think it was her hair. It was a natural hair bun, as in ‘human hair’ weave, ‘natural’ hair weave/afro/bun/extension, etc. I have ‘natural” hair add-on/plug-in buns, afro ponytails and up-dos that people, even women think is my hair when I use them and/or come up to me to compliment my hair or ask me if it’s my hair because they can’t tell and they’re admiring it.

      And, for me as a human being, your wedding day or not, I would be very angry that despite all the pre-counselling and warnings I had given you, you still DELIBERATELY chose to flout my rules IN MY FACE and it would just make it all the more (what is the word for the kind of annoying I am looking for?) really irritating, vexingly, aggravatingly annoying and PROVOCATIVE that you clearly thought that you wee smarter than stupid, old me , that am old enough to be your mother and grandmother (both the church, and the officials), that has done this times too many for you to count; you clearly thought 1) that you could use the occasion, the day, the congregation, witnesses, public, your family, friends, bridal train, presence of your relatives, etc, you all done up in your bridal regalia,=THE BRIDE – the venue, the church, EVERYTHING to intimidate me and embarrass and paralyse me into not being able to do anything other than be angry 2) you knowingly looked for a ‘natural’ hair extension and style thinking you had outsmarted me and that my disapproval and censure of such things equals that I am too archaic and ignorant and backward to really know anything about them and to be able to recognise them in all their various manifestations.

      See? I would be seriously irked for all these reasons. That’s just me, maybe.

      hat said, I hope she carries valuable lessons into her life and married life and marital home. She can always do a renewal of vows whenever she and her husband like in the coming years and find a venue and institution whose rules or lack of, she can abide by.

In fact they give you a fo with dos and donts which you acknowledge reading and understanding by signing. They even cite examples of people who defied the rules and were taken to the bathroomto take off the excessive makeup ,jewelries and hair extensions.

    Because of these rules,some people who attend MFM don’t wed there. They go to churches that are more liberal. She knew the rules yet she went ahead and was now inconsolable.

      Thank you, for me the bigger issue here is that wherein in all this doctrines does the real Christianity lie?? Because even Jesus did not conform to the rules of the temple or to the doctrines of the people of faith at that time, and how bible scholars of that time found his own manner of doing things against “the rule”. So pray tell how Christianity is living a “Christ-like” life yet building rules and doctrines to further alienate people from the beauty of Jesus. You know in the end a lot of these so called pastors that have turned Christianity into an institution will have a lot of explaining to give.

Holier than thou fellow!!! U keep talking about. Church rules who has rules helped? Even God had to do away with rule so that u can be saved. Can’t u see that th churches with so much rules in the name of doctrine have the most rebellious members. And also loosing their members to churches that wouldn’t judge them? Can’t u see. Its the brides wedding day for crying out loud, am sure if she had a choice she wouldn’t wed there in the first place knowing their rules and she tried as much as possible to look as natural and beautiful as she could. If they didn’t want it they should hav just told her not cut it off her head. That’s humiliation. So many times we need to ask ourselves sincerely what would Jesus do were he dere. Jesus wouldn’t have humiliated her. I don’t think he humiliates us when we clearly disobey him why should we do it to our fellow men when we havvbeen commanded to love. Where is love here. Jesus prayed for us to be one so that through our love and oneness others might be won over but we wud rather humiliate ourselves. I don’t blame dem, the revelation of God we carry goes along way on how we handle issues. God is love and the whole essence of Christianity is love. I pray God gives us understanding.

    Hmmmmm if I begin to talk…..

    Let me just start by saying, the bride should have followed the church rules. Folks saying she should have gone to a different church…blah blah blah, remember, typically the bride gets married in her parent’s church. While she might not necessarily be a member if both parents are and they are paying for the wedding, her fate is sealed. Although situations like this typically occur to younger brides/couple 23-27 who aren’t financially strong enough to carry the expense of a wedding and need mommy/daddy’s help or children whose parents hold positions in the church, while they might not necessarily share the same views, the are often coerced into getting married in their parent’s church.

    My grouse however is with the church mommies….haba! Kilode? You come grab scissors begin chop the girl hair off? Even Mary the harlot in the bible received mercy from our savior and those who wanted to stone her were reprimanded. How much more this? Because she had an extension weaved in her hair….you turned yourself to God and proceeded to carry out judgement. Because church mommies are perfect abi? Forget church rules….they don’t break God’s commandments at all right? ….they are perfect all the time. Bunch of mean, shameless, hypocrites!!!

    That was how I dated one guy like that, the guy was really cool but his mama was one of those no earring/no makeup/I love dressing frumpy because I am saved SU. The sister although a little better than mama was another frumpy looking chick who was in dire need of a makeover. Still I never judged this people o, somehow the mama found out about me after investigating on FB, let’s just say that was the end of the relationship. I definitely was not what she would approve of; I have long relaxed hair down my back with a couple of tracks in for body, light skinned with a standing biweekly spa appointment, La Mer is my skin’s best friend and my Dermatologist is always on speed dial so you know my skin is forever popping. My face stay best to gawds, I have a nice body and not afraid to throw on a sick bandage dress. And I love jewelry….the bigger the statement piece the better for me…lol. …That ladies and gentlemen was my crime o. The mama chased me away so quick it made my head spin…lol

    Funny thing is I actually loved her son a lot and he adored me. We were both extremely successful in our own right so it’s not like I depended on him for anything. But the mama saw me as a threat/worldly girl…lol. He is due to get married very soon to a frumpy looking his mother approved of, I saw her and couldn’t stop laughing. Let’s just saw she’s the opposite of me.

    I will get off my soap box now…???, but before I do, if you are one of those elderly overly religious mommies terrorizing small girls. Mama Abeg relax, worry about your own salvation and quit being so jealous and judgmental!!!

      Well damn! If I don’t love my self then who will???? Absolutely nothing wrong with having a healthy dose of self esteem….you sound like you could use some?

      And no I am not one of those “overly infatuated with myself/post multiple selfies/in your face kinda chick….don’t make assumptions Abeg! I gave a visual description of myself to emphasize the point that I do not fit their mold…but clearly that went over your head

      But do I look damn good and turn heads? hell yeah!!!! sometimes you have to toot your own horn….its not pride darling, it’s confidence, it only becomes annoying when done excessively, but every now and then, it’s perfectly okay to boss up!!!!

      Now If stating you look a hot mess makes you less vain and happy, then by all means darling walk in your truth!!!

    Well, maybe it’s because I am a muslim but I am very aghast by the number of comments under this story. Buhari released the evil killers of that christian evangelist woman in Kano, we didnt see this number of comment or backlash on social media. Nigerians dessipate their energy on what is not…..

      November 13, 2016 at 8:11 am

      @ijebujesha, you are not the only one, muslim or not. And, it’s actually Madam Bridget’s killers he released (yes, he, Buhari, because such a thing cannot happen without his say-so).

      “”A Kano Magistrate Court presided over by Jibrin Muhammad has freed five suspected killers of the Igbo woman, Madam Bridget Agbahime. The 74-year-old trader was killed, strangulated to death by a mob at Kofar Wambai market for alleged blasphemy. The septuagenarian had asked a muslim man who came to the entrance of her shop to perform his ablutions before his prayers not to do so at her shop entrance.. The woman who hailed from Imo State was murdered on June 2, 2016, at Kofar Wambai market over alleged blasphemy.

      The freed suspects, Dauda Ahmed, Abdulmumeen Mustafa, Zubairu Abubakar, Abdullahi Abubakar and Musa Abdullahi were challenged with a four-count charge of allegedly inciting disturbance, culpable homicide, joint act and mischief.

      Muhammad’s decision was based on the directive of the Kano State Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice.

      In his submission earlier, state counsel, Mr Rabiu Yusuf, who represented the attorney-general of the state, told the court that they have no case against the suspects.

      “We received the case diary from the police on June 8 and having gone through the case diary, the attorney- general of the state evaluated the facts in accordance with sections 130 and 150 of the criminal procedure code.” “The legal advice presented to the court, dated June 24, states that there is no case to answer as the suspects are all innocent, and orders the court to discharge all the suspects.”

      The Chief magistrate,Mr. Jibrin Muhammad discharged the five suspects and terminated the case in line with the directive of the attorney-general of Kano state.

      Counsel to the suspects, Mr Abdulsalam Gambo, expressed happiness and commended the attorney-general of the state for the judgment. It was observed that relations of the suspects who gathered at the court, were jubilating over the judgment.

      The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and the Igbo Delegate Assembly in the 19 Northern States (IDA) have expressed disappointment over the discharge of the five suspects accused of murdering Mrs. Bridget Agbaheme. Both associations insisted that there were direct and sufficient evidences to prosecute the suspects contrary to the advice of the Attorney General of the state to the magistrate court.””

      Ese Oruru – abducted, hypnotised, ‘married’, ‘converted’ at age 14, impregnated by one 26 or something year old Yunusa, from Bayelsa to Kano. She has a daughter now.

      Habiba Isa – abducted, hypnotised, ‘married’, ‘converted’, at age 14 now 15 (birthday in abduction), raped and defiled by 60-something year old emir of katsina, ‘marriage” to emir and commencement of sexual relationship with emir confirmed in public statement by katsina emirate council, “‘no going back on the marriage”‘, they said, and they said they asked her if she had already started seeing her menstrual cycle “”when she “met’ the emir and she said yes.””.Her septuagenarian father intimidated, threatened with death and violence right there in the emir’s palace even though he came with 5 others to see his daughter and try to free her, he forced to sign a prepared document, etc. Due to public outcry, suddenly, the claim is that Habiba Isa is not married to the emir of katsina but to Jamiliu Lawal, the emir’s serf who carried out the actual abduction. Thus, she has been raped and defiled multiple times now by two paedophiles, one older, one younger but still a paedophile.

      Mabel Okafor – 50 years old, murdered and left in her blood in her VGC apartment by her northern, muslim maigadi/security man/gateman because she refused the raise in salary he had asked for. He had worked for her for only two months and was paid N20,000.00 and asked for an increase (after working for 2 months) of an additional ten thousand naira. His former employer’s decomposing body was found with a knife in her stomach.

      Deaconess Mrs. Eunice Elisha – 42 years old, wife and mother, the RCCG lady evangelist murdered in cold blood and her body left sprawled on the muddy streets in Kubwa, Abuja about a week after some worshipers at a mosque near her house had threatened her and told her never to evangelise again.

      These are only a very few highlighted cases out of the so many,. too many over the years, out of teh few that come to public light/news whilst many, many, many more never make it to newspaper pages or social media but yet are well known where they occur.

      For how long? Whilst we fold our arms, fold our hands, seal our lips and move on to the next news of the minute?

      Everything was done in broad daylight. The mob actually even beheaded her and carried her head around the city jubulating! All these in broad daylight! But buhari’s police and attorney general say they have no evidence and no case.

    Infact we go to court & go for lunch at RSVP, V.I. end of wedding… Everybody go home.
    Why? To prevent rubbish of this sort. No church “mommy ” must put her mouth inside my marriage matter, I don’t even know any as I’m not the tiniest bit loyal, I only go to church to worship God, not see anyone.

    God gave us free will. Any church that regulates your life and tries to mold your psyche in any way is a cult. It is not of God! Do not be deceived. God sea the heart and not the appearance. Liberate yourself from that church immediately. You do not want to be there the day the owner of the establishment runs mad and decides the world has come to an end for him and takes all his members with him. It has happened before. I will personally sue that church and get a refund on the money I paid. They did not communicate their rules to you! Take them to court my dear! I would have just called a minister to my reception hall and moved on with my life! I would never stand for this. All those women would have chopped serious slaps for touching me.

    We are all talking one sided. Where is the before and after picture ? I agree no one holy pass but there are set rules and regulations in institutions, churches….. why do we choose to test our limits sometimes? There were other places to go to, why didn’t they go? If truly the extension was cut off, why wait for them to cut it? Where was her mother, husband, any member of her family? They must have consented to it because I am sure her friends or who ever was around her must have Gone to call someone. I am sure no one forced or glued her to the spot when they brought out the scissors. Or on the part of the church, they should have given options handing her over to her hairstylist or refused to perform the wedding. This issue has a lot of spaces that needs to be filled. I won’t be casting my stones on either or both parties. I know of my friends that married in the church with light makeup and natural hair and some that went completely natural. I also know that they go for up to 6 weeks or more counseling before marriage. Well overall, Her husband has a lot of work to do consoling her. I pray her marriage lasts and stand the test of time. Happy Sunday all!!!

    Very wrong, primitive and abusive. Shame people are supporting them. If she disobeyed the church rules the civilized thing to do is to tell her to fix things or leave. They were being bossy and vindictive. Not Christlike to me.

    Eyebrow on fleek for mfm?? Lol. She should have gone neutral for church and have the mua build on it for the reception.
    They must have told her the rules now and she probably just ignored it. Some churches will work with you if you explain to them beforehand. One rccg said no to my dress because it had a tail and another one said ok to it because i was fully covered and they ignored the other details.

    Those women cut her hair for one simple reason: they are wicked. Wicked terrible women. Very unChrist like. Shameful. Tomorrow they will claim they are like Christ. Yes, becuase thats what Jesus would do….

    How many of the church rule makers are abiding by the rules of Christ? Hypocrisy in the highest order is what has been displayed by this church mummies. How many times have they faltered in the rules Christ gave them? How many times did He bring punishment upon them? This is nonsense, hypocritical and demonic. No Christian should support this display of self righteousness. In the same churches, some of the mummies can’t look each other in the eye, some seek the downfall of others, but collectively they come to spoil a brides day and I hear people say church rules. BS. If you can’t keep the rules of Christ as a Christian, don’t give me rules please

    @shulammite I totally agree with you. Yes someone flaunted your rules. Tell her to repack the hair or do something. Not embrassing her, it even says a lot about your attitude. I like MFM,but one thing I’ve noticed about some of their members, they can pray, call down fire but they don’t exhibit the fruit of the holy spirit. Their attitude is not even christian like.

    I would really love to know why some churches make such rules. As in based on what? As far as a bride is decently dressed on her wedding day, I don’t see any problem with adding a little extra to look beautiful on your big day. After all, it’s a once in a lifetime event and the day u have to look your utmost best. Problem with all these churches is that they are still guarded by the Old Testament and their rules which Christ has died for already. You don’t need to work out your righteousness by what u do or what u wear. We are the righteousness of God in Christ and not by our works. Our works are like a filthy rag before God hence he sent Christ to wash our sins both past, present and future. All these churches and their mummies need to go back and study their bible. Your righteousness or godliness is not dependent on what you do, wear or act. It’s dependent totally on Christ and grace. Thank God for my pastor and his teachings that has made me realize this truth over and over again

    If only some Christians would read their bibles. How is that going to add anything but sadness to the days events. So it is whether or not you wear attachment and make up that will guarantee a successful marriage abi! After all they are the ones who attend the church. As for me oh, anybody try that one with my wife on my wedding day will here from me.

    If we all see ourselves as Christ sees us, the body of christ looks like all shapes, sizes, hair styles, we would dare not be hypocritical Pharisees and become great keepers of the law. Truth is God is a keeper of hearts. We must check our hearts, often quite a few things creep in which we use to rationalize stuff that has nothing to do with God.

    What a bunch of hypocrites! Nigerians have continued to be religious for the wrong reason.. Who made those women judges over another person’s choice/life? Even God does not force angels or people to adhere to his principles.
    True Christianity is not fanatical. Try that in advanced country and they will end up in jail for abuse!

I really don’t like their approach. There are better ways to correct dan begin out right rude. Every Sunday morning I detest going to church. Right now am missing Deeper Life dats my mum’s church. Oh my dey correct in d most nicest way u can imagine. Especially the gowon estate branch. Dey wouldn’t drive u back but trust me dey would put u in der prayer point everyday till u change.

    Jesus said something to the Pharisees, ‘you have ignored the commandments of God to uphold the commandments of men’. what those women did to the bride have nothing to do with God or the scripture, it is all about their ego, image and pride, for if not, they will know ‘He desires mercy, not sacrifice. don’t compare the church to anywhere else, mosque or working environment cause they aren’t the same. your office is all about their image, God is about your soul, your heart. I grew up in deeper life and I know people are zealous to fulfil man made rules but are not zealous about God. this type of attitude is the reason atheist yinmu at us and get away with it, they water down Christianity and we price them right everyday. I don’t use earrings or wear make up but deep within me, I know those church mummies were wrong. God sit on His throne in justice, and anyone who gives mercy sha obtain mercy. I only hope this won’t cause apathy to Christianity in the heart if the pride.

    biko why are you now crying more than the bereaved, the bride sef no gree post am probably because she was sober and felt she actually crossed her boundary, you ordinary photographer come carry am on top head like gala begin dey hawk for Ikorodu road traffic. kilo kan e nbe??
    what is your own there?? who send you? instead of you to be looking for how to remedy the situation by proffering a solution to ‘your bride’ as you have claimed you are busy spewing trash on social media causing unnecessary traffic thereby making the bride to see people’s comment and causing her to actually think she deserves a death sentence with what she has done..
    Oniraanu oshi, oniro buruku, how sure are we sef that you ain’t lying?……Look here my friend, the earlier you know that nothing brings greater peace than minding your own business the better for you.

They gave her options. She knows the rule of mfm. No need of preaching hypocrisy or blaming the church. The bride never complain or the husband. is the photographer that have issue.

    Jesus Christ is still telling the church to be separated from the world through Hell and Heaven revelations. When the trumpet sounds, many will be sorry. In fact, many dying each day with all those stuff, have no opportunity to change: Deut. 22:5, 1Peter 3:3-5, 1Timothy 2:.

    James 4:4 says the love of things in the world is enmity with God. Please read these links

    Nobody forced you to go to MFM.
    You should have known the rules before the wedding day if your ulterior motive was not to provoke the church.
    It is not by force.
