Ostensibly, November 25, 2012 will not wipe off in the memory of plus-size Nigerian comedienne, Adekoya Damilola popularly known as Princess as she got what she wouldn’t have imagined to get while she made her way to the presence of God in Lagos.
After leaving her house to fulfil all righteousness by keeping the Sabbath day holy, Princess chose Pastor Poju Oyemade’s Covenant Christian Centre church to attend that Sunday probably convinced and tounched by the pastor’s preaching on TV, which he does every Sunday.
According to what Princess tweeted, she was embarrassed by one of the church’s ushers who reportedly refused to allow her sit in the front seat while the pastor was preaching because she (Princess) was single.
“I can’t believe this Covenant Christian Centre people and their sitting arrangement. Is this not supposed to be the house of God? One [of the] usher[s] told me I couldn’t sit in front because I am single. I nearly died of embarrassment, in the presence of God! *sad face,” the busty comedienne tweeted.
Pastor Poju later apologised to Princess few days ago which was accepted by her (Princess) [@pastorpoju accepted but I feel really PAINED u waited dis long knowing wat ur usher did on Sunday was VERY wrong. Its not a sin 2 b SINGLE!]
However, Princess, going by her other response to Pastor Poju, was surprised that the pastor himself is also a single. Her replied tweet to pastor Poju, who may have deleted his apology tweet, as we could not get his tweets on the matter, reads, “@pastorpoju OMG! So u r single too, that usher owes a BIG time apology. He spoilt my day, made me regret coming to ur church & hurt my feelings.”
Princess is unarguably the most popular female comedian in Nigeria.
