Listen to article

Folu Adeboye is the wife of Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God. She is a veteran teacher who started her teaching career as a spinster and in the course of her life acquired various teaching skills. She is fondly called Mummy G.O; Mrs. Adeboye is a strong pillar, a visionary and a wonderful planner who complements the efforts of her husband. Her sterling attributes have helped her husband to obey God's command to become great.

One thing many can attest to is the fact that she loves being modest in all she does; she does not like being flamboyant just like her husband. She carved out a style for herself that has become hers. Any time she is spotted, one is bound to see her mostly dressed in skirt suit and a hat to match; if she is doing traditional, she makes sure that whatever she wears depicts her as a woman of desirable quality.

The hat has become her trademark of sort. Though, she is chauffeur driven all the time, she prefers the not too loud auto mobiles because of her belief. It is also rare to see her wearing jewelries; this also applies to her make-ups.

She is the director of Teen and Children Ministry, RCCG, president of Good Women Ministry, an educationist and a practical theologian.
She is a role model to a lot of women and in great demand in Christian conferences, seminars and programmes in Nigeria and beyond. She is blessed with four biological children.

Yemisi Ashimolowo is the wife of Pastor Ashimolowo, the senior pastor of KICC, the fastest growing church in Western Europe where over 10,000 members worship every Sunday. As the resident pastor of KICC's lead church, and the head of KICC's Winning Women Ministry, Pastor Yemisi oversees the spiritual lives of more than 5,000 women. Her personal ministry is to equip women of God with the necessary knowledge; gifts and talents to enable them reach their potential in Christ.

Yemisi is very active in her husband's ministry. She is a woman who has decided not to stay behind the door but just next to her husband.
One thing that is noticeable about this respected lady is her love for good things of life; a thing that is often preached by her husband. Her jewelries though are moderate but those who know her claim she spends a lot on this fashion item. Another thing that takes some part of her money is her shoes; we were informed that she shops at the best stores in the world. Because of her big frame, she likes to adorn clothes that compliment her. And she likes her hair mostly to flow backwards; either in fringes, braids or fixing of long hair. She is blessed with two sons, Tobi and Tomi.

She is the widow of the popular late man of God, Most Rev. Prof. Benson Idahosa of the Church of God Mission. She is the presiding bishop of the church. The pretty mother was born on the 29th of July 1943 into the royal lineage of the Benin Kingdom. She is the first female Pentecostal Bishop of a ministry in Africa. She is one of the powerful female pastors Nigeria has produced.

Margaret Idahosa is stylish in every sense; though she's advancing in age, this has in no way altered her love for fashion. The very articulate soul winner many years ago fell in love with American soul singer Anita Baker and ever since she has stuck with her style. A good number of times when you see Margaret Idahosa, it is most certain that she will wear the Anita Baker Hair Style. Though, once in a while she changes this unique style of hers, but even when she's not wearing the Anita Baker's style, she will be wearing another short hair style.

She is also a perfect example of how a virtuous woman should dress.

She is the wife of the General Superintendent of Deeper Christian Life Ministry, Pastor William Kumuyi. She was the administrator of the church in London before she became the first lady of the church. The 65 years old who was never married got hooked to her husband on the 13th of October 2010, in London. She was one of the 15 founding members of the church in 1973 and she became the lucky wife of the handsome preacher after his late wife, Biodun Kumuyi died in 2009.

And just like where she resided before the arrow of Pastor Kumuyi pierced her heart, she is known to be a conservative to the core. Her dress sense is unadventurous yet sits well on her. Her trademark however is her hat which we learnt can take a fortune off her purse. She does not like jewelries at all; and this is said to be because of her belief that has been with her for over four decades. Those who know her claimed she would have loved to be at the background but her union with Pastor Kumuyi eroded this love of hers.

Faith Oyedepo is the wife of Rev. David Oyedepo, the founder of the Living Faith Church worldwide AKA, Winners Chapel.

For some months, the woman of God battled with an unexplainable illness but she came out victorious. Faith Oyedepo played a vital role in her husband's ministry. In her teachings, she focuses on the family, marriage and healing.

Faith Oyedopo has a unique style that has not changed for many years. She juggles between skirt suit and traditional wears. Though, she does not like her dressing to be on the loud side, that however is not the same with her love for jewelries; the better half of the flamboyant pastor likes to expend a lot on jewelries. Another thing that is noticeable about Pastor Faith is her hair. She likes her hair short and hardly would you see her in long hair. But if you think she likes fixing the hair on her head then you got it totally wrong. Pastor Faith has a mannequin that she sends to her hair stylist who in turn makes hair on a wig. The wig will then be taken to her to wear. This became her style after her battle with ill heath, we were told. She drives all the flamboyant cars her husband drives and she has no apology for living a good life. She and her husband are blessed with four children-David Jr. Isaac, Love and Joy.

Peace Okonkwo is the first lady of The Redeemed Evangelical Mission (TREM) headed by Bishop Okonkwo. The 59-year old pretty wife met her husband in the church where they were both youth members of the church. Being a shy person, Pastor Okonkwo confided in her elder sister to tell her he likes her and they started their relationship from there.

Peace Okonkwo is a different breed of believers; though she keeps by the tenet of the religion but she is liberal when it comes to her dress sense. She is loud with her mode; her clothes, her jewelries and also other fashion accessories. Unlike most that won't touch trousers, she does not see anything wrong in wearing it. She even wears jeans at times with a good shirt to complement it. Aside this, she makes up and she does not toy with her hair. Though most times she likes hiding her hair in a hat or head tie but that in no way diminishes her love to keep her hair glowing all the time. Peace takes time to look after her family, she ensures that her husband eats her food when she cooks; according to those who have the ears of the Okonkwos, the Bishop hardly eats because he fasts almost everyday. So any day he is off fasting, Peace makes sure she cooks his food..
They are blessed with children.

The pretty wife who was a United Kingdom based music director met her husband during one of his many trips overseas.
According to members of the church, Rosemary Odukoya is a gentle and calm woman who doesn't intimidate any one with her status as the bride of the foremost preacher. Rosemary has never made it obvious to any one that she is the wife of the highly esteemed man of God; she'll rather do things herself, than wait for an aide to help her out. But if there is anything she loves most, it's said to be her hair.
Her long hair is one pleasure she holds dear to her heart. Most times, she employs the services of a stylist around the Ikeja axis who takes care of her hair. Even when she was going to the UK, she wanted her stylist to follow her so as to attend to her most treasured asset.

She's so humble that in a short while, many have been making her a worthy model to take after.

She is beautiful no doubt but the things of the world do not attract her so much that she just loves being moderate with the way she puts her clothes together.
