A few months ago I wrote one of the most controversial articles " I have questions" and oh my goodness I got so many responses both the good and the bad.
Most of it was so bad that a lot of people seized the opportunity to
tell me all the things they had been wanting to tell me for so long.
They cursed me and made me out to be a monster and a rebel.
The funny thing is that I was loving it so much because at that point I
knew I had hit a nerve in a lot of people. My aim was achieved during
that time as I got a lot of people to talk about it.
The most shocking thing about it is that the most constructive
responses, advice and arguments I got were from the Muslims, who sent in
research materials. Thank God for my strong and unchangeable love for
my Lord and saviour Jesus Christ, I would have been converted easily. My
fellow brothers and sisters in Christ who call themselves Christians
were busy insulting me and mounting curses on my generation without even
answering any of the questions I asked. Only a few pastors and
Christians were kind and mature enough to make their points known which I
In all of this I still maintain and stand my ground that the church of
today has failed us in all aspects of life. From politics, to domestic
violence, to marriages, to business, to even knowing what to do as a
people who need God to save the nation. The Christians are the first to
judge and condemn, they are the first to make you feel you are not worth
it, they are the first to laugh at you and they are the first to make
you feel like God is so far from you but close to them because your sins
are too great.
They have lied to people for too long and people have carried too much
pain and guilt, thereby loosing out on the blessings and their purpose
laid down for them by God. Some of the pastors of today have taken it
upon themselves to become mini gods and untouchable. They have misled
too many people especially our generation to the point that there is a
huge disconnect between young people and God. Notice i did not say young
people and church, I said young people and God. They have made church a
place were only certain types of people can enter , even though the
bible says Jesus came especially for the sinners. I thank God for
pastors like Ituah Ighodalo and Kelechi Chukwuemeka who have stood their
grounds to be servants and ministers who say it as it is. They have
stood as men of God and not made themselves God of men. Where are all
the people who claim to be God's Generals? They should stop flying high
and come low to let us know they are still humans. Let us know they are
the servants of God and not God himself.
The entertainment industry has had a lot of painful losses and people
have had different prophecies and different theories as to what could be
going on. A lot of pastors and entertainers have tried to come together
to pray and worship so that God will help put an end to all that is
People die everyday and people fall sick everyday it is not peculiar to
my industry so I will not live in fear everyday of my life because I am
worried that it might be me next. God did not give us the spirit of fear
so I am not afraid at all.
However, I must state here that the whole entertainment industry needs
to go back to their source, we need to turn away from all the evil and
dangerous things a lot of people have put their hands into just for the
fame and the money, we need to stop leading more people to hell with
the content we are putting out there. We all need to know where we have
gone wrong and start to trace our steps back to where we all once came
from. This whole mess started with the disconnect from the House of God
where a lot of us belonged to but these same churches failed a lot of us
one way or the other but we never got a chance to even speak to the
pastors and church leaders who believe that they have become spirits that are
There are some things that need to be said and some things that need to
be heard and STELLA DAMASUS in not afraid to say it or hear it exactly
like it is. There must be a middle ground between the House of God and
the children of God who have been blessed with so much talent given to
them only by God and not the world. We don't all have to be gospel
singers or evangelists or do church movies for us to have a free
relationship with God and his house. But how can we do that when we are
even afraid to be identified with a particular church publicly. I am
done with all the silence, backbiting, gossip, fear, ignorance,
hypocrisy and the lies in the church today and I am tired of the
unspoken battle, the cold war between entertainment and the House of
God. If nobody can boldly come out and talk about, I am ready to bear
the consequences because God will not be happy to see that we know the
truth but for fear of other human beings we choose to keep quiet and let
his children perish for lack of knowledge.
After the article I decided to put a talkshow together to address some
of these issues but Alas! So many factors started rising up against it.
Unfortunately for them my determination grew stronger and faster.
I have decided to put an event together in conjunction with my partner
and the only radical pastor I know who is not afraid to speak the truth.
The event is tagged ENTERTAINMENT AND GOD which will take place on the
3rd of March in Abuja. If you are an entertainer, stylist, publicist,
beautician, photographer, pastor, choir member, media personnel,
journalist, presenter or anyone who feels they need to hear what I have
to say, then please come for this event.
May the souls of ENEBELI ELEBUWA, GOLDIE HARVEY and JUSTUS ESIRI rest in perfect peace.
