Nigerians have called out the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) after it was revealed that musician, Davido and his ex-fiancee, Chioma reportedly dedicated their son in one of the churches.
Recall that the alleged dedication happened on Ifeanyi's 2nd birthday, on the 20th October 2021.
Nigerians are now wondering how it is possible for the church to allow lovers who are not married to dedicate their child or children there.
The former lovebirds who went their separate ways months back, put their differences asides to shower love and prayer on their young son, Ifeanyi after he turned two.
Sharing photos of his son on his Instagram page, the father of four prayed that his son, Ifeanyi, would grow to be greater than him and make him proud.
His post reads: ”Happy 2nd Birthday to my loving Son David Ifeanyichukwu Adedeji Adeleke !!! You will grow to be greater than me Amen ! You will grow to make all of us proud!!! Stubborn!! DADDY LOVES YOU SO MUCH OSUN BOY.”
While his mother, Chioma via her Instagram shared the bond she has with her son. Chioma stated that she would not share it for anything in the world, describing him as sweet and gentle.
She wrote: “Happy birthday to the perfect little man! I love you so much, watching you grow soothes my soul! To my loving, funny, attentive, caring son, I pray that God watches over you forever and grants you long life, you’re gonna be so great I know! Our bond is beautiful and I wouldn’t trade it for anything in this world. Happy 2nd birthday Papa! Mummy loves you so so much. You’re blessed!”.
The birthday celebration however ended with a dedication and thanksgiving ceremony in RCCG which stirred reactions from social media users.
Here’s some of the reactions below;
One Prada Bae wrote “So redeemed dey dedicate pikin outside wedlock” and one Jay responded with “Dont mind the hypocrisy in some churches… since their Pastor and Deacons are key people in this government, we shouldn’t expect any thing good…”
One Princess on the other hand asked “Goes to church at 2 years? Issokay oo. Where has he been since?”
