Kumawood actor Salinko has revealed rather surprisingly that the founder and leader of the International Godsway Church, Bishop Daniel Obinim used to be a younger member of a prayer team over which the actor presided.
Actor Abraham Davis, popularly known as Salinko, has told celebrity blogger ZionFelix in an interview that the popular Bishop Daniel Obinim used to be a younger member of the actor's prayer warriors team.
The interesting revelation holds that as far back as 1995, Bishop Obinim had been a Christian with a prayerful outlook on life. But Salinko was considered the prayer warrior leader, that is if you believe the actor's words.
The comic actor seemed to cast the now founder and leader of the International Godsway Church in the role of what Ghanaians would refer to in common parlance as "boy boy" back in the 90's.
But now, the roles seemed to have reversed.
In the video above. Salinko says: "I know most people would not believe me. Especially because I have never come across as a strong Christian but it is true what I am saying about myself and Bishop Obinim."
As to how he left a deeply Christian life, Salinko said he personally quit his pastoral calling after he learnt the lyrics of Obrafour’s 1999 hit song, “Yaanom”.
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh has sighted a Facebook post of a young Nigerian woman, Purity Nick, who has boldly rejected Christianity in order that she may follow what she says are her "roots".
What makes this story worthy of note is that although freedom of religion theoretically exists in many African countries, it is rare to see people rubbishing the most popular religion in their countries.
It is not known if Purity Nick is just a provocateur lashing out at an established religion in her native Nigeria or that she is genuinely switched to being a traditionalist.
Whatever it is, Nigeria's religious freedom and its defenders may do well to protect her.
