Pastor Chris Okotie: The Battle For The Vacant 'Mrs Okotie' Title

That the founder and the General Overseer of the Household of God Church, Pastor Chris Okotie packed it up with his second wife Stephanie Henshaw is no more news, just like the fact that a lot of people were caught unawares by his declaration that he was going to marry for the third time this December.

However, the announcement a couple of weeks back that the funky pastor will be getting married soon stirred some activities around his Oregun Lagos church, as some female members whose hopes were dashed when he decided to marry Stephanie four years back are currently jostling at the background to fill the vacant position of “Mrs Okotie.” Please click to continue reading.


Some of the ladies who are strongly rumoured to be on this list and whom the man of God has played a prominent role in their lives include:

Sola Salako, who was the church’s head of administration for several years,

Okotie’s close aide, Vien Tetsola, a former Miss Nigeria,

Ure Okezie, daughter of former minister, Dr. Okezie, who later dated hip-hop artiste Soul E, but who has since moved on,

Rose Elishama Ideh, who became a frequent visitor at many of Okotie’s church events, and who played a major role in his last presidential campaign.

All of these women quit the church in the heat of union then hoping that Okotie would one day wake up from the spell of the Calabar beauty, and their prayers were answered in June this year.

The argument of the women against the choice of Stephanie was that Pastor Chris had been the family pastor during her two marriages and Stephanie’s second husband was his oldest church member.

The story now is that since the pastor who was the presidential candidate of his Fresh Party is free from his marriage and has signified his intention to remarry, there is need to return as the race for the role of Mrs. Okotie is open.

First to signify her intention is Ure Okezie popularly known as Queen Ure.

When Okotie’s rejection pushed her into the arms of younger Soul E whom she dated for about four years before Soul E walked out of the relationship, she recently returned to the fold of the pastor that is known for his excessive grammatical expression laden sermon.

When questioned about Christ Vila, the church she co-owned with her ex-lover, she replied that she has returned to Pastor Chris Okotie’s Household of God Church and that she now worships there, raising questions as to why she chose to return to the church immediately after the break-up between the pastor and Stephanie.

Sources close to the church also revealed that it is a matter time before others like Vien Tetsola, and the rest return as the office of the wife of the pastor has now suddenly become vacant since most of the women in question are still single with the exception of the Roli Adeniyi who has since become married to the former vice-chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) South-west, Chief Olabode George.

    what exactly is the vibes?
    because he doesn't wear saville row(£2000) suits or drive the latest luxury cars?
    because his diction is not england or american trained?

    well then,how many nigerian or african churches congregation has westerners in large numbers both young and old who come from all round the world,and how many churches practise the real meaning of charity like his church does in giving back to the congregation

    1. Luca thank you, the likes of Mary are bought over by the tailored suits,jerry curls,perfect diction and all things flashy. I would think faith had absolutely nothing to so with any of these.

      I'm not a member of any of these churches,heck I can't stand any of the new generation churches. But to each his own anyway. We leave judgement to the lord.

    Lucabracee, did you just make some points supporting TB Joshua?

    Who is celebrating Okotie? Definitely not my household and I.

    Are they in the same category? (spiritual category as i don't care about their external facades.) Well, there may be a school of thought that says so.

    I don't buy into any Pastor or G.O's hype, even my own.

    Charity; I like Oyedepo even though i have never worshipped there.

    Remember we are saved by faith and grace, not works. Ephesians 2: 8-9.

  25. you guys are so pathetic. it is only in nigeria that junk journalist will write stuffs and jobeless people will swallow it hook line and sinker. the journalist that wrote this piece of junk was he or she there when rev chris okotie said he was going to marry again in december. why cant you take the pains to do your due dilligence and authenticate your story before you go about publishing all these rubbish. and you all that are saying that rev chris okotie is not a real man of God what excatly is your relationship with God. if you are even a christain at all what sacrifice have you made for the sake of the kingdom. what right have you gained to critisise him. or u sit in your self righteous seat and your open your mouth to invite God,s judgement upon yourself. i am saying this with all assurance because rev chris oktoie is my brother, he never at any point in time said he is getting married in decmeber, because he is not. i will advise you to leave him alone and face your own lives. the truth of the matter is that the more you talk about him, the more God blesses him and no matter your opinion there are people that believes in rev chris okotie, so keep your opinion to yourselves.

    2. @ anon 18:54 long epistle but wat exactly is ur point? Lmao @ ' there are people who believe in rev chris okotie' I thought it shud be ' people beleiving in Jesus Christ . Didn't know Household of God has started preaching pastor chris instead of Jesus Christ. Ok noted u have a sort of personal relationship wt him. Pls do deliever dis message to him '1. he dat calls on d name of d Lord must from evil depart.2. Woe betide he who for his sake a sinner perishes for it wud have been beta if a mill stone where tied 2 his neck and he were thrown into the sea. 3. All things are good but not all things are expedient( meaning if divorce is tolerated from heidi klum, kim kardasan, frank edoho and co, a man who claims he is called by God should desist from the act as this would lead so many people astray)' . Wit dat said, u can choose 2 tell ur pastor and brother the truth or wit ' ur veiled face ' keep acting like d ' foolish galatians of the bible. But I'm happy we've told u the truth and wen d judgement day comes, u n d lot of others dat applaud pastor chris while he brings 2 mud d name of Christ shall be judged alike...'Oge

You must be one of his lovers that he has hypnotised & is jealous that hes just doing you underG and no mention of your name as a wife to be. It's faithless people like you who talk about do not judge meanwhile a man called Chris Okotie makes public his life and you say people should not judge. Thunder will fire all your fake asses.

  31. @lucabracee I highly doubt Mary was referring to any of the things that you mentioned. His church has been rocked with diabolical and fetish rumours and I think that may be what she meant by the negative vibes. Although if it does turn out that she was talking about his cars and suits then shame on you Mary! LOL.

    Also Madam or Mr Anonymous 18:54, I understand you want to support your "bro" but please state what sacrifices YOU have made to the church. How is that we are now jobless and pathetic for believing this story but somehow you are not for not? Aren't we entitled to our own opinions? How do you know that the more we talk about him the more he will be blessed? Was it revealed as one of the perks for your great sacrifice?

    but that is just baseless innuendo,half truths because no one has been able to bring forth any evidence..one cannot just infer or suggest something without any evidence
    the bible says that a house divided against itself will eventually fall how come the man is still calling on the name of GOD and still growing higher over the years....personally i believe his condemnation stems from the pentecostal fellowship who don't agree with him showing them up..

    pastor kalejaiye who is like pastor adeboye's right hand man,came to my former church some yrs ago and shared a story that hired killers came to his house and when they got him they told him another man of GOD who he didn't mention his name sent them to kill him he was lucky GOD rescued him but that shows you what christianity has turned to now..

    i read a soft sell where it was rumoured that people are leaving pastor ayorinde's church due to fake miracles i also met one woman on my trip to naija in 2009 who told me that while on a trip to her hometown some yrs before 2009,she was passing in front of a known herbalist's house and saw a big car while wondering whose car it is she saw pastor ayorinde in front of the house talking with the baba she said she was zoo shocked that she instinctively picked race..
    i don't know if this is true or not but thats what she told me and swore to it..only GOD knows...

  37. i totally agree with nov 10, 18.54. i am not a member of rev chris okotie church neither do i know him personally but i know a lot of people that have testified that they have been blessed through his teaching. i know a prostitiute that became converted by going to rev okotie church. i also know a friend that had suicidal tendencies but after giving his life to Jesus in rev okoties church, he changed and today he is serving God and working in an oil company, and still worships in his church.so please no matter what okotie has done, i know he is a real man of God , but we should not forget that he is a mn just like you and I, and can fall at any time. i maintain like 18.54 that neither of us have earned the right to judge him. do you know why?...becauce we are not perfect. we all have our own shit that we are dealing with. if you know you have no sin then by all means go ahead and judge and cast the stones but remember that the bible says by the same measure you judge , you shall be judged. i will suggest that you all leave rev chris okotie alone and face your lives and deal with the issues in your lives and leave rev chris okotie alone to sort himself out with God. bless you all.

  38. @lucabracee (anon 1:17) People can make up malicious rumours about other people's progress or lack there of...swear to it even but at the end of the day only God knows the truth. You're right.

    It's extremely sad about the attempted murder of Pastor Kalejaiye. Thank God for his life, may God protect us all.

  39. i still maintain my position that none of you has earned the right to judge my brother. i will address my brother as a REVEREND because he is a man of God. the truth of the matter is that all of you are dissatisfied with life thats why you have time to sit in judgement over a man you know nothing about his walk with God, his relationship with God or his struggles. is it because you are not well known and so it is easy for all of you to pretend and think you are handling your own strugles. if you wear the shoe rev chris okotie is wearing then you will be in a better situation to judge him. but if you haven't worn that shoe for once then please by all means keep quiet.

  40. REV. OKOTIE’S MARRIAGE STORY, HANDIWORK OF MISCHIEF MAKERS

    Once again, one is constrained to refute the baseless, totally false and ridiculous report in one of the soft sell magazines in which Rev Chris Okotie purportedly announced that he’d remarry in December 2012.
    The public is hereby informed that Rev Okotie never announced any plans to remarry this December or at any future date. He remains committed to his pledge not to speak on his marriage. Any story in this regard should therefore be seen as the handiwork of mischief makers.
