A Nigerian clergywoman, Prophetess CyyCyy O Power, has warned young Christians against indulging in online-dating.
She issued the warning during a sermon in church as she told members of her congregation to desist from dating people they meet online.
In a video making the rounds online, Prophetess Power could be heard telling her church members that the practice of resorting to the internet to find a life partner is unbiblical.
She urged Christians to seek God’s kingdom first and all of their desires, including marriage, will be given to them.
The clergywoman said; “It’s simple. The formula is there; ‘seek ye first the kingdom of God’. Do not seek online dating.
“Seek ye first the kingdom of God and every other thing shall be added: Marriage, houses, babies, whatever you need. But what is the formula? God first. Not online dating”
Meanwhile, a young Nigerian couple’s beautiful love story warmed hearts online after the lady revealed how they met.
She revealed that she made the first bold move even though her husband had always been showing interest in her.
According to the wife, he always liked or commented on her pictures and often hyped her but he never for once slid into her DM.
However, when she felt that the constant hype was becoming too much, she went to his DM and asked if he was looking to get married because she could not understand why he was always on her case.
That was the beginning of what blossomed into a relationship that ended with them becoming husband and wife.
The lady’s story was shared on microblogging platform, Twitter through @FamilyTips___ page.
The post reads; HOW WE MET
Opeyemi and I met in the most unconventional way, In fact I was even the one that sent him a message asking if he wanted to get married. (Hold on ladies, don’t beat me yet, I can explain myself) 😭
So in 2017, Opeyemi sent me his ever first DM saying that I had ignored his message (Baba did not message me o, he just dey find talk)
So since then, we had been following each other on Twitter Hi and Hello type of friends.
But I noticed that anytime i post any picture (per fine girl na) or say anything, Opeyemi will come and like the picture and start hyping me up.
In my mind I’m like (Who is this one again? I no even know your papa)
Anyhoo, fast forward to April 25th 2020 which happened to be my birthday, I got a lot of birthday wishes from my followers on Twitter, I also got one from Opeyemi (which was normal)
But tell me why Opeyemi sent that message like 3 times, even went to his page and was “subbing” me like “Happy birthday Sandra” “SANDRA is so beautiful” “I like SANDRA” .
He didn’t mention me o, he was just talking to himself . He was awkwardly overtly excited for my birthday so I said this one this person is doing plenty notice me, Oya take my attention, you’ve been noticed 😁
I decided to help the shy boy and I… ..sent him a dm saying “Are you trying to be married? Like get into something serious” ?
Mind you, this message was unprovoked, we had never had any conversation concerning marriage before or even dating sef, he was just another follower that always used to come and “Famz” me.
Opeyemi Replied my message with “I’m available for Cuffing , take me , tie me, Handcuff and Leg-cuff me😩” (Like you see on the receipt ,in case he wants to deny)
When I even sent the message truly I just wanted to cruise, it was my birthday, the air was merry so I was nice to everyone. (If you like don’t believe me)
I eventually asked him to call meandaskmetobehis girlfriend officially, which he did. The rest they say, is History.
