The Leader Of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele has surprised popular gospel musician, Evangelist Bunmi Akinnanu Adeoye with a car gift to celebrate her birthday on Monday, 1St Of August, 2022 at the grand finale of the church’s ‘God will not put me to shame’ 7th anniversary.
While presenting the car gift, Primate Ayodele described Evang. Bunmi Akinnanu as his ‘fourth daughter’ whom he has been watching since she was young, while noting that he chose to celebrate her because he discovered something is missing in her life.
The man of God explained that Evangelist Bunmi once shared with him how she was fought and thrown into the gutter by someone whom she borrowed a dress from.
‘’I want to celebrate a birthday celebrant, Evangelist Bunmi Akinnanu; my daughter and ‘fourth born’ today.’’
‘’You did your song ‘Omije Ojumi’ while you were still young and struggling, you shared a story of how you borrowed a dress from someone who later fought you in public. I watch so many artistes but I see something is missing in you. You have done songs for several people but they didn’t give you that missing thing. ‘’
‘’You go to lot of churches but pastors don’t appreciate you, they don’t know your value but today I want to surprise you and give to you what is missing in your life today’’
Before unveiling the gift, Primate Ayodele requested that Evang Bunmi to bless the congregation with her unique and serenading voice.
It was an emotional moment for her when the man of God brought out the car key and presented it to her. She couldn’t help but show gratitude to God and Primate Ayodele for allowing God to use him.
