Tribute to Pastor Bimbo Odukoya


Pastor Bimbo, your sudden departure is still like a dream to me. All I have been saying since December 11, 2005 is that “Ile ma nje enia o; iku ma d’oro o” so Pastor Bimbo can just die like that?…

Pastor Bimbo, your sudden departure is still like a dream to me. All I have been saying since December 11, 2005 is that “Ile ma nje enia o; iku ma d’oro o” so Pastor Bimbo can just die like that?….it is a rude shock. Pastor Bimbo, both your personal and spiritual life was a message to me and to all women.  You never compromise your Christian life with worldly life. Your Christian and social life was balanced. Your ways of life proved to me that someone can be a Christian and also be glamorous and dignified. The last time I was with you on May 25, 2003 at Jesus House, DC you counseled me as a pastor and as a sister. You taught me how to be a great mother under any circumstances.  Pastor Bimbo, you’re my role model and my mentor. You’ve touched my life. You have created a vacuum in my heart that can never be filled, I will miss you greatly. May your gentle soul rest in an everlasting peace and we shall meet again at the feet of Jesus Christ. “Auntie Abimbola, Mama Toluwani, Mama Jimmy, Mama Tobi, gbe ori le aya Olugbala re ki o sun re… sun re… sun re!”

Otasowie means evening life is better than morning life. There is an error in your “evening life is better than evening life”?

Sokari doesn’t mean joy. Joy is Biobela. Go to the village and ask the meaning of the name.
