Ovation Boss, Dele Momodu on Saturday paid a condolence visit to Evelyn Joshua wife of the late founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations Prophet T.B. Joshua,CityNews reports.


Late TB Joshua’s widow has been receiving guests on condolence visits at the church in Ikotun, Lagos since her husband passed on on June 5.

CityNews Nigeria reports that Bashorun Momodu signed the condolence register and paused for a few minutes to observe the clergyman’s photo.

Speaking after signing the register, the celebrity publisher recalled four occasions where he encountered Joshua.

Momodu said he had known Joshua for over two decades and that sometime ago he featured the preacher on the cover of Ovation Magazine.

He said Joshua ordered and paid in advance for 5,000 copies which were printed in England. After printing, Momodu said the cleric only collected 10 copies and asked him to sell the rest despite paying for them.

Momodu further said he had to do another cover featuring Joshua back-to-back, this time with his wife. According to him, Joshua again paid for 5,000 copies and only collected 10.

“He was such a man who was so generous,” he said.

The media mogul also recalled how Joshua called him at night years back when he (Momodu) went to London for a cataract surgery.

“He called three times that night and insisted I must send my account details and he paid. I will never forget that occasion,” he said.

Speaking further, Momodu said Joshua supported him during his bid for the Presidency in 2011. He said joshua supported him with cash, despite telling him he would not win the election.

Lastly, he said two years ago, he went with Joshua to Israel for the preacher’s crusade. He recalled that Joshua paid for the trip and that he was surprised that even taxi drivers in Israel knew who Joshua was.

“I pray that papa’s soul will find peace, eternal rest in our Lord Jesus Christ. Whatever anybody may say about him, he lived a very good life. He lived a life worthy of emulation. As successful as he was, he was very simple, easy-going. And I’m sure he would not deliberately hurt a fly,” Momodu concluded.


Yinka Alaseyori:Tope Alabi Lands In Fresh Trouble, Sola Allyson Reacts

Gospel artist, Sola Allyson, has come out to speak after her colleague, Tope Alabi, openly condemned the song of another gospel artiste, Yinka Alaseyori.


Reacting via her Instagram page, Sola who has also sang the same song in the past but with a different rhythm opined that God has revealed himself to people in different ways and that concluding about God based on the way a person is granted to see him is dangerous and unfair to humanity.


She wrote


Oníìdúró mi, ? ?É ooo!!!

For me and many souls which connect to this song, Oníìdúró mi, we have stories which clearly show that we would have been forgotten long ago if not for the guarantor side of The FATHER that was expressed in our lives…

I commend Yinka @adeyinkaalaseyori for making the song more accessible to souls all over the world and I wish her more help in all her doings. The song tells the story of many of us who had no backing from anyone and none to rest on or be as hiding place as to what our tomorrow would be.

I first heard this song years ago from Mama Bola Are at my home-out-of-home, @agape_pground in Akure and I immediately connected with it because, me, I would have been ridiculed, and deserted and forgotten! The song helps me express my gratitude in that respect very succinctly.

I have come to learn that we understand the concept of GOD differently, depending on how we were “given” and how much we are granted to see as we make effort to dig deeper. And that’s why I live my life devoid of divides which different abilities in understanding breed…

I don’t know much about life. I am still a learner who seeks for my mind to be renewed daily, but one of the few things I know dunjúdunjú and dájúdájú in life is that I received the help of a guarantor, an Oníìdúró from The Realms of GOD, The Almighty, at times when it was obvious that generational jànkárìw?? would stall me from fulfilling destiny. Times when, as a lawful captive, foundational voices vibrated higher than my own and I was going to be consumed! I was set free by The ultimate Guarantor, Oníìdúró mi! And I became totally free to walk as I should in destiny, to grow and thrive as should be…

We see in parts. GOD, The FATHER Is revealed to us in different ways and sides depending on many things…

Concluding based on the bit we are granted to see is dangerous and not fair on humanity. There are many ways we approach GOD and there are words we use based on our limited understanding but I know that by mercy, the state of the heart is understood…
Is it not by mercy that we can approach in the first place? Remember that I am a learner…

ONÍÌDÚRÓ MI, ? ?É OOOO! Mo dúp??!!
