Yesterday, Monday the 13th of July, was Redeemed Christian Church of God leader, Pastor EA Adeboye’s wife, Foluke Adeboye’s birthday and the clergyman took to his social media page to celebrate his spouse and companion of over 50 years.
Celebrating her, the pastor said there’s so many things young brides can learn from her. He went on to say that despite being a powerful woman who gives out instructions to people, she still cooks his meals and serves him herself and is quite submissive to him in other things.
He wrote on his page,
Today is my wife’s birthday and there are lessons that women, especially so many young brides can learn from her. She is a powerful woman, I know that.
She has many people who take instructions from her, but as powerful as she is
Busy as she is, she still cooks my meals and serves me herself. Many young ladies these days leave everything to the house help. My wife still trims my nails for me. There was a time when I was a teacher and was staying far from town.
She had to cut my hair during that period.
She is the only partner of the Adeboye Corporation; she doesn’t delegate her primary duties to anyone else. Just like the virtuous woman described in Proverbs 31:1-31, I safely rest on my wife.
His statements has since caused a stir on Twitter with a lot of people —females especially— triggered over the fact that his wife, despite her stature and age, is still submissive to him.
This has caused the clergyman to become a trending topic on social networking platform, Twitter with many people having a thing or two to say about his birthday message to his wife.

Pastor Adeboye should have just said “happy birthday flesh of my flesh” and keep it moving.
Now we know he can’t do basic things like feed himself and trim his nails.
Pastor Adeboye has all the right to have his wife submit to him. Honestly, even if she spoon feeds him, it’s not my business. My own is: know the kind of marriage you want. You want the one he’ll use your back as dinning table? Fine? You want equal partners kinda thing? Fine.
If Pastor Adeboye and Dangote gave you an appointment on the same day, same time. Who will you go and see? Be sincere!
If marriage is going to be how Baba Adeboye described it, then fvck it. I cannot can
Pastor Adeboye is not kuku setting standard for anyone,he’s only expressing how submissive his wife has been these past few years
Pastor Adeboye said “you can insult me, curse me.. I’ll only pray for you. But if you insult my wife, I’ll kill you! You won’t rise up on the resurrection morning”
You didn’t come out then?? Woke Twitter?!
Normally,Women are supposed to be submissive to their Husbands,Pastor Adeboye was just stating facts and Appreciating his wife for being submissive,so it’s stupid to insult him,when he was just being right. Plus:if he was a terrible Husband,submission would have been hard for her
can’t believe Adeboye really sat down & found a way to make his wife’s birthday about himself and his power over her. a simple “happy birthday my love” will do next time please
Pastor Adeboye decided to praise his wife on her birthday, thereby commenting on what has kept them together till date. But fools that can’t keep 6 months relationship are insulting him and turned it into a gender war.
