Pastor Kumuyi’s Son Apologizes Over The Way His Bride Was Dressed For Their Wedding(Read Letter)


For those who still don’t know, there has been serious controversies trailing the marriage of the second son of the General Superintendent of the Deeper Life Bible Church, John Kumuyi, to his heartthrob, former Miss Love Odih.

After their wedding on the 15 of June, they received a significant level of backlash over how the bride was dressed which is claimed to be against the doctrines of their church. The bride who happens to be the daughter of the National Overseer of DLBC in Jamaica, wore a wedding gown, ear rings, held a bouquet and applied make-up .

We’ll, both Bride and Groom offered a public apology which was read to the congregation on Saturday during the church’s mid-year celebration programme held at the Deeper Life Conference Centre, Lagos-Ibadan Expresway and broadcast live to branches all over Nigeria and some parts of Africa via satellite.
Read apology letter below

“John and Love Kumuyi write to express our deepest and most sincere apology for the turn of events, that have resulted on our traditional and wedding ceremonies, that took place in Jamaica on 13th June and 15th June, 2013 respectively.

“We unreservedly and wholeheartedly state that we did not intend that our acts or omissions will, in any way, undermine the great works that God has done through the Deeper Christian Life Ministry worldwide and more specifically, through our Father in the Lord, the General Superintendent.
“We also use this medium to profusely and sincerely apologise to the General Superintendent for the embarrassment and heartaches, our actions have caused him, more so that he has earlier declined to be at the events.
“This, notwithstanding, we fully accept that having been nurtured, taught and brought up with the sound teaching of the word of God, we should have been able to draw the line, which we failed to do.

“We have now realised the effects of our actions and omission and do plead with the church for forgiveness and also appealing that any action that should be taken be directed at John and Love, as we take this time to prayerfully reflect on our actions. We take full responsibility for what happened, and this action should, in no way, be blamed on the GS, or the leaders of the church in Nigeria, United States, Jamaica or United Kingdom and beyond.



  1. You don’t owe anybody apology. Your dressing was not indecent. if your conscience which we assume is reformed by the doctrine of Christ does not judge you and allowed you to dress that way then you are okay.

  2. Dat apology is to d Church and not to God! Does dat mean dat all d people dressin as they did on their weddin day are sinners? I bliv God see’s d heart, so let’s stop tryin to please Man instead of God. Most of us want to please our Parents, even when we know dat they might not absolutely be right! As for me there is no indecency in dat dressin.

  3. That is the problem we create when we fail to distinguish between church dogma and bible doctrine…we begin to major on the minor, minor on the major…make sinners out of saints, and make saints out of sinners…

  4. May God help us. To some it may be just a little. Some people may say it does not matter. That others are doing it doesn’t mean it is right. Also if the doctrine of Deeper life is Biblical if any one acts contrary to it irrespective of his title or position, he needs to amend his ways and not only to apologise to the church but to God.
