Like the fabled goddess of the Verges, Faith Oyedepo, the wife of Bishop David Oyedepo, ages with elegance and grace. She clocked 60 some days ago and she is showing no telltale of age. She still looks refreshingly young, with a glowing natural ebony complexion that is the envy of a lot of other women.
The founder of Living Faith Church Worldwide, popularly known as Winnersâ€™ Chapel, Bishop Oyedepo, wrote, â€œHappy 60th birthday to my wife, Faith Abiola Oyedepo. Youâ€™re more beautiful in every way with every passing day.
Iâ€™m grateful to God for blessing me with you.â€ Knowing his social antecedents and deep pockets, one would have expected that the 60th party would shake the roots of high society to its foundations and remain on the lips of guests for eons to come.
However, the respectable man of God did not throw a giddy or gaudy feast; there was no rivers of exotic drinks, or a long line of canapÃ©s and gourmet foods. Rather, after the thanksgiving service, there was a light entertainment for few guests.
As wives to prominent pastors, no more are they scarcely seen and never heard. Today, they have become more visible, more assertive and fashionable too. The dawn of the 90s no doubt triggered a new awakening for these women in the Lordâ€™s vineyard. Faith is one of them and has a unique style that has not changed for many years.
She juggles between skirt suit and traditional wears. Though, she is a bit conservative in dressing, she spares no expense on her love for jewelries. She and her husband are blessed with four children – David Jr. Isaac, Love and Joy.
