X-Ray: Is Tope Alabi in Oro Cult? Did ‘Prophet’ Ajanaku initiate her?

Pastor Ajanaku and Tope Alabi - during the good old days

Pastor Ajanaku and Tope Alabi – during the good old days

Tongues are dangerously wagging in social media and the music industry about multiple-award winner and sonorous Yoruba Gospel Singer, evangelist Tope Alabi, after the mysterious death of her former spiritual mentor and former pastor.

Prophet Iretiola Ajanaku’s demise was shockingly celebrated and mourned by the 27 Ogboni Fraternity Members of Gbongan town who stormed his home and practically took over to perform the occultist funeral rites/ritual as is common whenever any of their members die.

In a similar vein, the Oro cult has also come out to identify with the ‘pastor-prophet’ at death, when they mourned all night in a vigil between 12 midnight and 5:30 a.m., marching through the streets of Ikola Odunsi, Ikola Gbenaje, and concluded the rites at the deceased’s street, Folarin Williams Close, chanting and singing dirge of his departure saying: “Ajanaku lo, o di gbere”, meaning “Ajanaku is gone forever, adieu”.

Months before his demise, the prophet had boasted in an interview with Biodun Kupoluyi and other reporters and bloggers, [GISTMANIA, COMEANDHEAR, GISTEXPRESS and OLOKUNBOLA BLOG] that his estranged spiritual daughter (Tope) and her husband would be ashamed if he opened his mouth to tell the world what “God” had done for them through him… hear him:

There are many things concerning her and the husband that I will never tell anyone, never ever. If she had not said that she met me only six years ago, I would not have called you to show all these pictures. And if I say what God has used me to do in their lives, with proofs and medical test records in their hands, they will be ashamed of themselves.

She actually met me 11 years ago when she came to church crying that since she married she had no child. I told her that by the grace of God when we shall be holding another anniversary she sill come and dedicate her child before God. I have pictures of the child dedication, I christened the child Deborah.

I’m wondering if she’s being foolish or just stupid. I remember when she was putting pressure on me to have sex with her. She did not hide her urge to have sexual relationship with me. At a point she could not control her urge to do that but I declined, I said never, not me.

The question on many lips now are: “What was the secret that the prophet vowed NEVER to reveal to anyone about Tope and her husband?” “Why would the couple be ‘ASHAMED of themselves’ because of such revelations?” He had already revealed that God used him to make Tope receive the fruit of the womb and gave birth to her daughter, what then remains as “shameful” secret between this couple and the late prophet? Wagging tongues are gleefully spewing out talks about some abominable covenants, ritual or occult initiation between the couple and the late Ajanaku.

Our reporters picked the tips and rumours and went to town to interview some members of the Christ Revival Church International located in Baruwa, in Ayobo-Ipaja, Lagos, who prefer anonymity before speaking with the press. One ex-member of the church said he perceived his former and late pastor was in a strange covenant with the couple saying “…when daddy threatened to expose the so-called “shameful secrets”, he broke the covenant and broke the hedge according to Ecclesiastes 10:8, and became suddenly vulnerable to the venom of the serpent which oversees the strange covenant… that is why I left the church when the fight broke out few weeks ago.”

The last has not been heard about the drama as Tope Alabi reportedly rushed back from Ontario Canada, upon hearing the news of the prophet’s death, to pay her last respects to her former mentor. She reportedly visited his house in Lagos to commiserate with the family of the late prophet and afterwards got home to post pictures of her family and to thank God for sparing her husband’s life, praying for longevity.

Tope Alabi is one woman who will need a lot of sympathy now, aftermath of the demise of Ajanaku because of the way she waxed eloquent in songs praising “the God of Iretiola Ajanaku” in many of her albums. Pictures of ‘when the going was good’ circulated massively online showing the prophet spraying money on Tope to appreciate her songs and laying hands on her while she knelt down to receive the ‘anointing’ to prosper and for fame from him.

She is greatly misunderstood by her large fan base on Facebook who are divided into two camps. The first group sympathizes with her on her ordeal and “false rumours” going round the media about her and prophet Ajanaku. The second camp is confused and wary, not knowing who or what to believe, particularly because they felt misled in the past by Tope’s undiluted endorsement of prophet Ajanaku’s ministry and miracles as evidenced by her many albums she waxed to eulogize the late prophet.

    Stunning news! As far as i am concerned,i believe God has a true picture of the situation.However, I want to urge people not to be distracted by this development whether proved false or true.Tope alabi needs to check her ways and understand how delicate reckless christian life is. She must be extra careful with her dealings so that God’s anointing on her will not run dry.

This is a great lesson for us to learn out of it. And stop sayin sister tope sister tope, she is not your GOD, nor the so called pastor!!!

    (1) A House built on top of a Hill Can not be Hidden. (2) Satan took Jesus To a high Hill and said if u can Bow for me I will give u all This kindom. (3) For they will say but I PRAY in ur name, I PREACH in Ur name, I HEAL and I Cast Out DEMONS in ur Name, then jesus will say Go away From me You Sinners. (4)) when a salt is no more Tasty, it is ment For nothing than to be thrown outside and Match on By Men. I don’t judge anybody atall for us is not To judge. Let us forget all and start forward ok. Arch Angel Says bye For now I got some work to do in Heaven. Take care all!!!

  21. kayo

    Enuf of the blasphemy. Thou shall not judge, remember the bible tells us so. And as a matter of fact I’m so disappointed in those pf us making silly comment about what u hardly know anything about. Don’t act on hearsay, how would u react if u later come to find out that the aligations levied against her we’re blatant lies? Another thing is that as christians, we should learn to be calm about the way we react to rumours, people of other faith will always stand firm for what they believe in even when they know their faith is questionable. I beg of u in the precious name of Jesus to desist from the act of condeming others. We are joint heirs in Jesus. Tope Alabi is our sister in Christ. Would u av come out in the open to condemn her in the open if she was ur biological sister? We are suppose to stand together in unity for Jesus. If some1 does something that make his faith questionable, u are suppose to correct in love. Stardom comes with a price tag

  22. kayo

    And as for u Mr Islam, don’t start a religious revolution here. Look for somewhere else to do ur campaign. U are just sitting around looking for loopholes to break us a(xtians) apart. I pray that God Himself will reveal the truth to u

  23. Olayinka

    God knows best, (so sad, almost weeping) i just pray its nt true cos i cant help mysef not to listen to her musics anymore. God, pls lets kno d truth intime cos am lost in confussion and deep thought, i jst pray its nt true…… Sobs. Sis tope alabi, hw i wish dis is nt happening to u. D Lord is ur strength.

  35. Tope Alabi is my mummy in Christ and she will continue to be. Though am not a yoruban and I’ve never seen tope alabi in my life, but the songs she sings makes me know and also believe that she’s a true child of God. I don’t care to know the rubbish that have been written about her, i believe those things happened when she was still in the world or they didn’t even happen at all! Maybe the writter is only trying to destroy her image. Stand firm Mummy tope, the Lord God of Israel is your strength and He’ll continue to be in Jesus name! Amen!!!
