Her mother called him for a meeting!
“I can see that you and my daughter
had been together for months
I will like to ask you why she is
not pregnant yet!
He was 26 years old and had no plans
of impregnating a woman outside of
He told her mother as much
Her mother laughed
Her mother told him he should look
elsewhere for his white wedding bride!
“My daughter is special!
She must be pregnant before she
can be married to any man!
That was the prophecy that came
with her at birth!
Didn’t she tell you?
If you really want to marry her
Do the needful!
When he got home he discussed
with his parents
His father, a nominal Christian didn’t
see anything wrong with it
His mother was worried!
“Must you marry this girl?
A girl with a prophecy that insists
she must be pregnant under her parent’s
roof before she got married?
Must it be?
He loved her
His father supported him
His mother fell inline
He did the needful
She got pregnant!
As soon as she started showing,
they had a court wedding
He was married!
She was a very good woman
Cheerful throughout the pregnancy,
loving and very understanding
He was very lucky
One month to her EDD
She told him to promise he would never
cheat on her and would remain content
to be married to her all the days
of his life!
He assured her of his love
The delivery time came, he took her
to the hospital
She laboured for three days
The doctors were clueless
She didn’t dilate
They wanted to do CS
As soon as they wheeled her to the
theatre a sudden ominous cloud hovered!
The doctors and nurses started
itching all over
She was a strange one!
The doctors told him to take her away
He called her mother
Her mother arrived in a jiffy!
Her mother took her to a spiritualist
“She was a very special child
She had a covenant with her spiritual
playmates to die during childbirth”
Her mother was nodding as the man spoke
He just watched the scene unfolded,
He had married a possessed girl
He had been duped!
After two more days of pain without
making any headway
He was told to get candles and some
spiritual work materials to appease
his wife’s spiritual playmates
By the time he returned from the market
His wife was dead!
The babies (Twins) in her womb were also dead
It was hellish!
He was a widow at 28
Life took a whole new dimension
He had actually wooed, slept with,
impregnated, married and buried a
Nobody could tell him witches were a myth
He had married an ogbanje! He had no clue!
He took his time to heal and decided
to try again at 30
He met a lady, a fresh graduate
They talked about the possibilities
of a relationship
He really liked her
Two days later, the lady broke up
He didn’t get it!
They hadn’t even started dating yet
He tried again with several ladies
He got the same result
The ladies ran!
When he clocked 35, he decided he would
impregnate a lady and then marry her
He wanted a family
He started dating a lady
He invited her over
One thing was leading to another
The lady suddenly screamed in pain!
There was a bite mark on her arm!
He saw it manifest out of nowhere
They couldn’t sleep all night
The next morning, the lady picked
her bag and ran
He knew the problem was with him
He went to his parents
His mother took him to many places
They told him he was still married
“You promised your late wife you will
love her all the days of your life”
He was married to a dead woman?
He was an ordinary guy with a normal life
Was it not enough that he married a wraith
and carried the stigma of losing his
wife so early?
Should his reality be dictated by darkness?
Pastors stylishly discharged him
He went to many places
At 38, having been to many prophets and
spiritualists for help without making
any headway, he fell into depression
He was lonely and just wanted to die
He was scrolling through his phone when
he saw a friend’s WhatsApp status
A story on http://gbengawemimo.com
titled The Arsonist
He read it again and again!
While it didn’t exactly mirror his case,
he saw similarities!
He reached out to the Brother in Jeans
and T-shirt on WhatsApp!
He was desperate!
Oddly, the Brother in Jeans and T-shirt
didn’t tell him any prophesy”
They just prayed!
They met the following Wednesday, at 9am
The brother in Jeans and T-shirt led him
He had been attending garment churches
He didn’t even know it was necessary to
give his life to Christ
The brother in Jeans and T-shirt laid
hands on him
He was filled with the Holy Spirit
The Brother in Jeans and T-shirt told
him his late wife can never come near
He knew this to be true in his heart!
He felt something leave him when he
received the baptism of the Holy Spirit!
That night, as he was about to sleep,
the Holy Spirit told him
He left the flat the next day
He rented a new apartment
He changed church
Three months later, a sister from his new
church ran into him at the mall
He had no fear
They exchanged numbers
They started talking
She was 34, an engineer!
Six months later, he proposed!
She said “Yes’
Today, November 2, 2019, is their wedding!
His name is Kayode
Her name is Boluwafe
The wedding is taking place around
Mobil Bus stop, Oluyole Estate in Ibadan!
You don’t need to light a candle,
you don’t need to carry sacrifices or
do spiritual divorce!
Come to Jesus, be free!
