In the video of his revelation here are some excerpts
“When I entered ministry, the fathers I met in the ministry always insisted that we had to be full time pastors. We thought that if you were not a full time pastor, you were not serving God well. I later discovered that God gave me a brain of business. I would always go on holiday in London and use my estacode to buy musical instruments which I would sell at Ebenezer Obey’s music shop in Nigeria.
That is how I bought my first house, built my first house at the age of 27 as a young pastor. It is because from the age of 14 I have always sold and hawked bread and other items. It began to occur to me that I must not apologise for who I was.
The 65 years old founder of KICC is currently among the list of the richest pastor in the world, with churches branches all across the world, he is also a role model to many congregation member of his church.
