Pastor Okotie and Stephanie split — Okotie’s second marriage crashes

Filed under: News Update |

Simon Ateba:

The glamorous marriage between Kris Okotie and his beautiful wife, Stephanie, has crashed less than four years after their big wedding, the funky preacher announced today.

In a dramatic announcement after a moving ministration, the controversial pastor of the Household of God Church and three-time presidential candidate, told his church their differences were irreconcilable and the couple had divorced.

“Stephanie and I are no longer married. We have separated. You can see she’s not in church today. It’s due to irreconcilable differences and you should please respect our wishes at this time because there is no going back.” With this terse statement Okotie announced the break up the marriage.

P.M.NEWS learnt that the congregation couldn’t believe the shocking news they had just heard from the charismatic former pop star turned cleric and politician.

Okotie reportedly made the announcement which invariably spoilt the day for most of the worshippers who had earlier had a very memorable brethren’s’ birthday celebration characterised by soul lifting songs, dancing, prayers, ministration and cutting of the cake.

While Okotie is divorcing for the second time, Stephanie has now been married three times and has three children from her first two marriages.

The break-up also puts an end to dream twins that Okotie expected her to deliver someday.

On 7 August, 2008, Okotie married Stephanie Henshaw, the woman he described as the most beautiful on earth, in a glamorous wedding attended by a horde of journalists and celebrities.

The funky preacher and celebrity singer had directed wealthy members of his church to donate millions of naira in gifts and cash and they made it one of the biggest and most-talked about wedding that year.

There were 12 committees made up of members born in each month of the year. Members born in the month of June, Okotie’s birth month, contributed the most. The eloquent preacher was born on 16 June, 1958, in Delta State.

Aside this, Okotie had selected 120 members, 10 from each month to form the wedding train. Each of them wore aso ebi.

The celebrity pastor also invited two journalists from each media organisation in the country to give total coverage to his second marriage.

Okotie’s traditional wedding took place on 7 August, at 6 George Street, Ikoyi, Lagos, by 2 p.m. while the registry ceremony followed the next day, Friday, 8 August, at the Ikoyi registry, at 4 p.m, and the thanksgiving and benediction took place on Sunday, 10 August, at the Household of God Church, Oregun, Ikeja, Lagos.

The clergyman told his church members early that year that he would be getting married to Stephanie because of her beauty which he described as angelic.

The eloquent preacher had also said that Stephanie has been under his watch for five years and did not mind the number of children she had from her previous marriages.

Mid-2007, when Okotie made his choice public, his church almost broke up as some female celebrities who thought they were the favoured candidates for ‘the post‘ of Mrs. Okotie, received the shocker of their lives when he settled for Stephanie, the unassuming woman in his glamorous church.

Ladies like Sola Salako, church administrator for several years and Okotie’s close aide; Vien Tetsola, a former Miss Nigeria; Ure Okezie, daughter of former minister, Dr. Okezie, and others, were rumoured to have left the church because of the announcement.

Celebrities such as Mofe Damijo and many others were also said to have simply quit Okotie‘s church then, while some have reluctantly returned.

Okotie’s marriage to Stephanie was his second attempt at matrimonial life. He was first married to Tyna his long time friend, but the marriage packed up after 17 years without any child.

Okotie loved his first wife so much that there was hardly a sermon in which he did not mention Tyna.

Long after they separated, he still spoke about her with deep emotions as if they were still married.

So much did Okotie talk about Tyna that some of his admirers in the church became jealous. But when he announced that he was set to marry Stephanie, he hardly mentioned the name of his first wife publicly.

Stephanie then became his centre of attraction.

On one occasion, Okotie invited Stephanie to the altar for a formal introduction.

After dancing around her for some minutes to the delight of the congregation, Okotie looked at Stephanie as she was going back to her seat, looked at the church and looked at Stephanie again and said in Igbo language, “Lekwa nwanyi nka marama” meaning “Look at her, isn`t she beautiful?”

Pastor Chris Okotie, founder of Household of God Church, Oregun, Lagos, is another firebrand preacher that often sends his audience into ecstasy.

He is also known for televangelism, and for preaching the end times which he titles The Apocalypsus.

In his messages, Okotie always reveals his knowledge of the book of Revelations beyond the ordinary and in a very complicated language which has prompted many to go to church with one or two dictionaries!

    • when one assumes some kind of position, he respects the position. before one can call himself a pastor, he should know that some pleasures must be dropped.
      you know what the press will write when they see a respected bishop like Oyedepo in a public swimming pool (a Nigerian influential pastor found naked in a public place)

    • please make thesame referral for Evang. Livinus Ofem of TIMES CHRISTIAN CHAPEL, UGEP. who is marrying another wife even when his wife is still alive and has refused to remarry because she believes she is still married to him, when CAN treaten to act, he was prepared to take CAN to court and claim damages. this mentality has infact affected his members who will not marry anybody outside their church, some of his members have even proposed to three girls and wants to settle with one, infact there is trouble.

WHO KNOWS WHAT CHRIS has gone tru to take this decision, come to think about it does he have a child?

  54. Well, it’s just unfortunate and a very sad story. Let me say, this to all and asundry who has this publication in their social media devices that, THERE ARE THREE THINGS THAT ARE MYSTERIOUS IN EARTH has the Holy Bible has stipulated. 1. The Mystery of Godliness, 2. The Mystery of Marriage, 3. The Mystery of Iniquity. Having said this, my submission is, there is no perfect man in marriage and no perfect marriage in the world. My father says, “not every woman that does not have a matrimonial home is said to be bad in character”. Therefore, what had happened to a pastor colleague is nothing to celebrate about or for anybody to mock the MOG upon. God knows why, and only God should be left to judge the situation. He instituted marriage. Your formular may not work for mine own marriage. God bless u.

  57. Man cannot live alone is an injunction of the Almighty God. Pastors are not excempted from temptation. There is dishonesty in ‘buying & selling’, evils may continue to prevail in Nigeria as long as we harbor ‘cash & carry’ antichrist priests.
    Their philosophy is,
    ‘jesus for sex’
    ‘jesus for money’

  66. Okotie lusted after beauty.What offence has he committed when majority of his colleagues were lusting after wealth? Living in affluence, some moving about with private jet when some of their congregation can’t afford three square meal a day.Was this how the early church lived? This reveals the emptiness of latter day christianity, the protestant business termed churches, the worst case.

  67. The bible is our standard, God said I will hate divorce. My question is why did he divorce the first wife. When God said He hate divorce, even in the new testament divorce is not allowed. Malachi 2 : 16, mat 19 : 3, lev 7 : 14. Well he is a pop star

  73. This type of thing must happen in order to fulfill the scriptures. This is just one out off one thousand. There may be DEMON – ORDAINED “Pastors” and GOD – ORDAINED pastors. One should be very careful not to be carried away by their demonic miracles and prophesies.

  78. A HOUSE is just a house..Its the presence of a woman that turns it to a HOME,You can be a M.O.G or Devil’s child.A man without a wife is Homeless
    Beauty goes beyond the external body of a woman,nor the mere physique but the inner heart,maturity,understanding,sincerity and trust can makes a relationship last longer..When you fall in LOVE with beauty,then you fall in LUST.the result will always be negative cos you are on the wrong part of destination
    Life is just like a spider thread!!! so flexible and so tinny…Going into a relationship its meant to be for better for worst,in sickness and in good health,for richer for poorer..When a leader lays a bad example,what do you expect the followers to do???please can someone answer this question?
    When man works, man works. But when man prays, God works! i pray may God forgive us all our sin

  84. @RONKE, how dare u mean dt Chris Okotie is fake pastor. Does a second time crashed marriage turn someone a fake pastor. Someone openly announced to His congregations that the wishes of the couple should be accepted on the fact that they are no more husband and wife. Am sure you are worried because he did not open up on what transpired between them, that is jst the simple language for public consumption and for those care to listen to the man of God. His private life should be respected. I PRAY TO GOD TO GIVE BOTH OF THE EX-COUPLE THEIR NEW HEART DESIRES.
