Apology not accepted: Comedian Princess “regrets” going to Poju Oyemade’s church

by Akan Ido

We don’t think the comedienne, Princess will be quick to attend another service organized by Poju Oyemade’s Covenant Christian Centre in Lagos.

Princess, also known as Damilola Adekoya, tweeted that one of the church ushers prevented her from sitting in the front row of the church ostensibly because she is not married.

“I can’t believe this church and their sitting arrangement. Is this not supposed to be the house of God? One of the ushers told me I couldn’t sit in front because I am single. I nearly died of embarrassment, in the presence of God.” the comedienne tweeted.

Reports say the pastor later apologised to Princess, but she said the apology came late, adding that “it is not a sin to be single.”

She went on to tweet at the pastor of the popular Lagos church: “(The usher) spoilt my day, made me regret coming to your church and hurt my feelings,” she tweeted.

  1. Tell you what;she must have put on a dress that might be too seductive for a single pastor and the usher in his or her wisdom politely relocated her.

  2. Reading these comments make me wonder, if people are intellectual stunted or totally brainwashed! Please lets be logical: she was asked not to sit in a place because of her marital disposition which is single. For the love of God, what has this got to do with taking a seat?! If we can not respect a person for who she is, then it speaks volumes of who we are! What the Usher did was wrong! Period! And Princess deserves an unreserved apology.

    1. The title of this post says “Apology not accepted:…” She’s gotten your “unreserved apology” but rejected it, thereby revealing the pride that made reject the seat the usher gave her in favour for a seat in a section meant for married folks.

      Don’t be in a haste to judge situations and people. “Judge not that you be not judged.”

  3. There is nothing embarrassing about asking you to sit in a certain place in a church. The duty of the ushers in any gathering is to arrange the guests. Meanwhile if you feel that your status of being single embarrasses you when mentioned, then go and marry

  4. I don’t think you should be angry with a man of God… beside, the incident happened without his consent. moreover, the usher acted on instructions given to him or her. In conclusion, the man of God had humbled himself to make you happy by saying he is sorry. Cheer up baby!!!!

  5. But princess where you go to do your comedy show ,dont they put sitting arrangement,come to think of it, the house of God,or the C&S your parents church dont they have sitting arrangement,dont think too high of yourself jor,God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble

  7. it is possible that the area she wanted to sit was earmarked for married people. Some churches, especially those that have a small population of married people actually arrange for married people to sit with their spouses at particular areas (most in front). this could have been the case.

  8. Haaa yaaa sori,make u self go marry now

    1. Mr Amodu, pls act educated. Is that the issue we are discussing? We are talking about inequality in the house of God. Should she marry herself? As you can see, she is single so you can marry her.

  9. Ahhaaaa aahh

    It is not a sin not to be married, but it is much better to be married. Why not get married to prevent future occurrence. After all you are a beautiful Princess.

  10. Aahhhaa aaaha
