Pastor Chris Oyakhilome’s estranged daughter Sharon has abandoned her father’s gospel music label to record a hit song with her reported lover and producer ‘Rich Boy’ Frank Ugochukwu Edwards.
The move has sparked controversy among followers of the rich and famous Nigerian televangelist (net worth $50 million) who recently separated from his pastor wife Anita. Anita Oyakhilome filed divorce papers against Pastor Chris in a London court in 2014, accusing her husband of adultery and unreasonable behaviour, and of turning their Christ Embassy church into a ‘five-star brothel’. Sharon Oyakhilome publicly blamed her father for the impending divorce and moved out with her mother.
Sharon previously recorded with Pastor Chris’s Loveworld Records. Her new song, God’s Love, was recorded at Edwards’ rival Rock Town Records and has been a runaway hit. Rich Boy is a former member of Pastor Chris’s famous Presidential Choir and was signed to Loveworld before forming Rock Town.
Edwards and Sharon have avoided commenting on reports that they were in love. However, Edwards praised Sharon’s effort and said she was a great musician destined to go far. God’s Love went viral after its video was released in April.
