Deeper Life church’s founder, Rev. William Kumuyi ha finally addressed some critics who were against his recent adoption of gospel singer, Dunsin Oyekan as a ‘Kingdom son’ during a church program that also had former Chairman of First Bank of Nigeria, Ibukun Awosika and co-founder of Andela, Iyinoluwa Aboyeji in attendance.
In a video released online hours ago, Kumuyi reacted to the criticism by explaining that he only invited people who are experts in their fields and who can connect to young people who the program is meant for.
Speaking further, Kumyi said that those accusing his church of lowering standard of holiness do not know the caliber of people who were invited, but are only judging them based on their own understanding and appearance.
The Pastor also said though there is freedom of speech in the country, some people speak from an “undeveloped mind”.
Kemi Filani recalls that a former Deeper Life Pastor, Gideon Akande had called out Kumuyi for inviting ‘Philistines’ to a program in the church.
The Philistines according to Mr Akande are renowned entrepreneur and former Chairman of First Bank of Nigeria, Ibukun Awosika, gospel singer, Dunsin Oyekan, and co-founder of Andela, Iyinoluwa Aboyeji.
