I had no idea the heights that you would take me to nor the depths and wonders that you would show me in life; all I knew was that you were a very special man – a unique man, a true man of God; and I was being given the privilege and honour of journeying life alongside you. 25 years later, having lived life under your cover, guidance, love, and assurance; if I had to choose again, I would choose you Adeolu.

Paul and Ifeanyi met and got married in 1995. The couples are blessed with three children; two sons and a daughter. Paul once revealed what every man ought to do if he desires to be showered with love and attention from his wife. According to the man of God, having the ability to stimulate your woman is enough to make her love you more and give everything about herself to you. ”Despite what many say, what a woman loves most about a man is his ability to stimulate her mind. When you can stimulate her mind, she will willingly give you the rest of who she is.

“Learn how to appreciate and enjoy the intangible things about a person and enjoy the physical later when you are married. Your purpose in life is to glorify and magnify God. How we should love one another is to display God’s glory to others so that they fall in love with God for themselves. The beautiful thing is that when you delight yourself in the Lord, He will give you what to desire. When you pursue God, you are most likely to bump into what and who God has in store for you.”

Ifeanyi stirred the hornet’s nest in recent past with her comments on ladies who dress indecently. She spoke against the way some ladies dress to church and the gimmicks they resort to in their search for husbands.

“Walking up and down cannot get you a husband; if you dress somehow and there’s a guy here you can tempt, the guy will have a fling with you as the toy that you are and fling you when he’s done. No man wants somebody that by the time he’s walking, he’s trying to figure out if this is how she is advertising, how many of us are logging into her website.”
