Mike Bamiloye and his wife, Gloria
Evangelist Mike Bamiloye, the highly respected veteran Nigerian Christian film-maker, whose wife, Gloria, clocked 57 on February 4, 2021, has revealed why he did not put it on social media.
He said he didn’t post some attributes of his wife on social media for fear of backlash by “social media militants”.
In a Facebook post on Thursday, the founder of Mount Zion Faith Drama Ministry said he restrained himself when he remembered how feminists attacked the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, last year for paying a birthday tribute to his wife, Pastor Folu Adeboye.
Bamiloye, who has been married for 33 years, said his wife, Gloria, is “very humble and submissive” like Pastor Folu Adeboye.
He wrote, “Sometimes ago, when My Daddy, Pastor Enoch Adeboye said Mummy Folu Adeboye is very humble and submissive, the internet and social media broke loose and some bees of people went after him, talking against him and dragging him.
“When I saw what the social media militants did to him, I too could not post the post what I wanted to post about my wife.
“I had wanted to post that my wife, Mummy Olusola Gloria, resemble my Mummy, Folu Adeboye, in humility and submission, and that is why I am still enjoying my marriage of 33 years.
“Up till now, I am still not able to post the post I wanted to post that sister Gloria is very humble and submissive in her husband’s house.”
The PUNCH had earlier reported that in a tribute last July, 78-year-old Adeboye who has been married for over 50 years, said his wife still cooks for him and is submissive.
Although the message was well-received by many of Adeboye’s followers, several feminists on social media called out the cleric for promoting patriarchy and male chauvinism.
Adeboye later apologised to his critics saying he was talking to his spiritual children and members of his church.
