oyakhilome-nd-wife
Pastor and Rev. Oyakhilome

According to The Cable report,  the dissolution of the marriage between Christ Embassy Church founder, Pastor Christian Oyakhilome, and his wife, Rev. Anita Odegwa Oyakhilome, has entered the final phase. The wife is seeking divorce on the grounds of “unreasonable behaviour” and “adultery”. She outlined several allegations against the pastor

The divorce case, with Suit No FD14D01650, was filed on April 9, 2014 at Divorce Section A, Central Family Court, First Avenue House, High Holborn, London, UK, on Anita’s behalf by Attwaters Jameson Hill Solicitors, a full-service law firm with expertise in commercial law and a strong consumer focus in family, wills and estate, personal injury law and medical negligence.

Efforts to reconcile the popular couple, whose church is one of the biggest denominations in Nigeria and has branches all over world, have failed.

They have two teenage daughters, Sharon and Charlyn.

Oyakhilome is the president of Believers’ Love World Inc, the registered name of the Christian ministry, while his wife is the vice-president. The pastor, according to an elder of the church, has denied allegations of adultery and believes his wife is being influenced by “bad friends” who are intent on destroying their home.

While Anita believes she has been relegated in the scheme of things in the church, her husband has reportedly accused her of trying to usurp power and authority above her seniors in the ministry. Sources told TheCable that the pastor had been making efforts to avoid divorce in the hope that the wife would eventually have a change of mind. However, TheCable can also report that the decree nissi was served on the charismatic pastor in his hotel room during a recent visit to the UK. Decree nissi, in legal terms, is like a yellow card in a football match which is a precursor to a red card (“decree absolute”) if no new evidence is provided to stall proceedings.

Church insiders said Oyakhilome had been hoping for rapprochement, but he was left with no option than to receive the papers when the lawyers cornered him at his hotel in London. The decree absolute, which will effectively end the marriage, is expected to be issued soon while terms of the divorce will be worked out by the lawyers on both sides.

Jaguda.comdownloadTheCable learnt Anita recently wanted to go public with the details of her allegations against the husband but reached an informal agreement to sheathe her sword in the interest of the church. Oyakhilome is regarded as one of the richest and most influential pastors in Nigeria, and co-authors the fast-selling Christian daily devotional, Rhapsody of Realities, with the wife. However, following the strain in the marriage, the wife had been complaining to friends that her husband had stopped the payment of royalties due her from the devotional. “She complained of being deliberately starved of funds, perhaps to bring her to her knees in the belief that she would eventually return to her matrimonial home and mend things,” a church member  told TheCable in the UK. A wealthy Zimbabwean businessman, who is into telecoms, is one of the biggest financiers of the London branch of the church which Anita pastors along with other branches in Europe.

Oyakhilomes

 

When the crisis got to a head, the Zimbabwean stopped funding the church ─ some said in solidarity with Oyakhilome, his close friend and neighbour in Johannesburg, South Africa. However, Oyakhilome was said to have been shocked when the wife announced at a fundraiser that she was sowing a “seed” (donation) of $1 million ─ despite her assumed lack of access to funds.

Matters got to a head on Sunday, July 13, 2014, when some relatives of Anita locked up the London branch of the church to protest against the “humiliation” being meted out to their sister ─ who had not overseen services at the branch since November 2013. Some church members had sometime in May 10, 2014 launched facebook campaign, asking: “Where is Rev. Anita Oyakhilome?” They said Pastor Chris and Rev. Anita must unite “for the sake of the gospel, the church and their two beautiful daughters”. They quoted Malachi 2:16 in the Message Bible: “I hate divorce, says the God of Israel.” The facebook page, which has over 3,300 “likes”, was opened with a stated mission: “This is a Call to Prayer for all believers who understand God’s heart concerning marriage and a Call to Action by Pst. Chris. #DoWhatYouPreach”. Officials of the church quickly moved to deny any rift between the pastor couple. One official, Kenneth Achumasara, told the media last June: “I can tell you authoritatively that there is no issue between Pastor Chris and his wife, Anita… If you go to the UK now you will see her along with the kids. She is still with him and there is no issue between them. I have been with him for 22 years and the Pastor Chris I know cannot even utter such words as reported. He will never address such a gathering. She will soon be in Nigeria for a programme and I will definitely invite you to have access to her.”

Was out shopping with my friends last month and while we were at one of my favorite stores, TKMaxx, I found this simple yellow dress in all our sizes.

Being extremely obsessed with work fashion, I asked that we got styled in two different ways to work and one way to an out-of-work-work-function.

Work Looks 01
a. POWER NERD

1

1b

She styles with a black Jacket, Shoes and Bag. Glasses for a bit of edge. Then adds a pop of color with the shoes to eliminate any thoughts of ‘boring’.

b. EARTH WAKE

2

2b

As minimally styled as this looks, its extremely classy. Subtle hints of color with the bracelet. That beautiful smile crowns it all.

c. SPRING GREEN

3

3b

If not too careful, she would give an over-the-top vibe with this look but comes together nicely. Jacket, printed tights and lipstick ooze trendy and them shoes shows she means business. Also, she’s a very practical female with the flat shoes, which could come in handy on a busy day.

Work Looks 02
a. ROUGE BUMPS

4

4b

Styled for a not-so-serious workday as the company’s annual Christmas lunch is same day in the premises. Definitely wouldn’t be missed in this.

b. LADYLIKE GLAM

5

5b

Certainly loving the structure of the bag, which matches that of the jacket. She does a great block of color.

c. LACEY GREY

6

6b

She decided against color this time around. Stuck to the same bag because face it, sometimes changing bags the next day is stressful. Plastic sailor brooch exudes playfulness.

Out-of-Work-Work Looks

a. RAVE INSPIRED

7

7b

Got this girl about town thing going on. Such a flirty way to style this dress.

b. LASH OUT

8

8b

She is most definitely one for footwear color pops. Good old yellow dress is set for a glam event.

c. SPOLIED BRAT

9

9b

All 3 of them decided on sandals, who can blame the? Any reason to stay off those work shoes is appreciated. Weather’s so cold hence the jacket layering.

I hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed putting it together.
Get inspired and style your clothes up down and maybe sideways. 

A teenager has been found guilty of raping an 11-year-old girl in a park as she made her way home from school. Opemipo Jaji subjected her to a three-hour ordeal and threatened to stab her after she tried to run away. He had just been released from custody for having child porn when the incident occurred.

The 18-year-old was convicted of rape at the Old Bailey after the brave youngster gave evidence against him in a London court.

Jaji, of Edmonton, north London, had denied the offense despite traces of the girl’s blood being found on his clothes. He had two previous convictions since the age of 16 involving an attack on a 12-year-old and for making indecent pictures of girls.

The schoolgirl was dragged into Jubilee Park, Enfield, north London, by Jaji in November.

He had spotted her in her school uniform as she joked and laughed with a friend on a bus. He followed her as she made her way home and attacked her in the dark park.

He will be sentenced in 2 weeks and faces a life prison sentence.

The organisers of Africa Fashion Week London and Côte d’Ivoire Fashion Week are pleased to announce a new partnership which aims to see both fashion weeks working together to promote African fashion.

Now in its second year, Côte d’Ivoire Fashion Week is set to take place on 20- 23 December 2012 at the Historic City of Grand Bassam (National Costume Museum) in Abidjan under the theme “Ivorian Textile Products on the American Market”.

Having successfully concluded its second edition on 4-5 August 2012 at London Spitalfields which saw over 20,000 guests attend the shows and exhibitions over two days, Africa Fashion Week London is currently preparing for its third edition in August 2013.

The organisers of both fashion weeks will work together to promote both fashion platforms and support Ivory Coast designers to showcase at Africa Fashion Week London 2013 to provide them with an international platform.

“AFWL’s aim is to promote emerging and established African designers and African inspired designers from across the globe which is what we intend to do with our partnership with Côte d’Ivoire Fashion Week,” said founder and CEO of Africa Fashion Week London about the partnership.

Founder and CEO of Côte d’Ivoire Fashion Week and World Fashion Organization Ivory Coast National Chapter chief representative Coulibaly Severin added, “London is one of the most important fashion capitals around the world. It is a great honour for us and the African Continent to have a professional international platform to promote African Fashion industry actors, African heritage, African values, African textiles through Africa Fashion Week London.

As Côte d’Ivoire Fashion Week takes place in Abidjan, a city considered as the cultural crossroads in West Africa, we have to contribute to the success of this project and consider Africa Fashion Week London as a part of ourselves. So it is like a bridge for Ivorian Fashion Industry Actors to access the European Market and the Londoner and international fashion industry actors can consider Côte d’Ivoire Fashion Week as their House too.”

The partnership will see both fashion weeks working together closely to promote African and African-inspired design talent on al their platforms, both in the lead up to Côte d’Ivoire Fashion Week this December and towards the third edition of Africa Fashion Week London in August 2013.

AFWL casting was a fun and memorable day for those who took part; the venue was at Grange City hotel in London, which boasts a classic yet sophisticated layout that portrays an elegant casino feel.

The casting took place in the conference room of the stunning hotel, where the AFWL team were greeted by the friendly employees who were setting up.

Moving away from stereotype the day started promptly and by the afternoon we had an influx of models, who would soon go and meet the wonderful industry experts on the panel, such as Catwalk Choreographer Julius, Fashion Stylist Sonia, and Editor in chief and creative director Sinem and Suby at FAB Magazine.

As the day went on, more and more talented and beautiful faces arrived, making the judges spoilt for choice, although they were still able to whittle it down to the best of them.

The models on the day of the event are definitely set to wow the crowd, and prove that Africa Fashion Week London is not only an event of high standard, but one that will be remembered.
Don’t Forget AFWL is on the 3rd and 4th of August at Spitalfields Market in London. It is a must see event and is set to be one of the top fashion events of the year.
