Nollywood actor, Zubby Michael has slammed those claiming he got spiritual powers from controversial Onitsha based Prophet Chukwuemeka Ohanaemere popularly known as Odumeje.
Last year 2019, series of videos emerged online showing Zubby dancing alongside Prophet Odumeje at his church’s service. This had prompted claims in some quarters that the actor is one of the cleric’s church members.
However, in a video shared on his Instagram page on Sunday, Michael maintained that Odumeje is his friend and not his pastor.
Zubby also called on his fans to stop linking his fame and fortune to the powers from Prophet Odumeje’s altar.
The Nollywood actor who directed his anger towards Instagram blogger, Tunde Ednut, noted that he only visits a place when he is invited to perform as an actor.
He stressed that Odumeje once gave him cash amounting to N1.5million during his housewarming and that he returned the favour as he gave the controversial prophet N500,000 cash during his birthday.
“The lion, Odumeje. Where is he leading you all? You guys can enjoy all the drama but I hate it when you say, ‘that’s where Zubby got powers from, he made Zubby successful’,” Zubby explained.
“Are you sick? The thunder that will fire those making such claims will come from Adamawa! I’m not denying he’s my friend way back from Onitsha. But does that mean I go there to pray?
“Odumeje is my guy, not my pastor. Don’t be stupid. I don’t go to church. I’m more of a spiritual person than a religious. So I hate it when you tag me in your unnecessary drama.
“Especially Tunde Ednut. Are you stupid? Why are you promoting unnecessary drama? Don’t you see what others promote? You’re a fool. I’m saying this because of my fans.
“Odumeje is my guy; during my house warming, he came and sprayed one point something million. He invited me during his birthday, I went there sprayed N500k.
“But, because of that, people are already making false claims. Stop that nonsense. He’s my friend, not my pastor. If you want me in your own show, then pay me and I’ll definitely come.”
Meanwhile, Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) has asked the Federal Government to arrest Prophet Odumeje over serial abuses of the Nigerian Naira and other currencies during his public ceremonies in Onitsha.
