Nollywood Veteran and Lagos state deputy governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Funke Akindele, has revealed she was born and raised in the Celestial Church of Christ (CCC).
The award-winning filmmaker made the assertion when she called on the clergy of the church to pray for her, as she embarks on her political endeavour.
In a clip shared on social media, on Sunday, by CCC Wonderland Parish, Funke said she was born and raised in CCC, adding that her case could be likened to a lost sheep who has returned home.
“I was born and raised in Celestial. My situation was like that of a lost sheep that God calls back home,” she said.
Speaking in both English and Yoruba languages and donning the church’s white garment called ‘sutana’, said she had always come back to the church in secret for solutions to challenges.
The 45-year-old Actress added that she would, henceforth, associate with the Church publicly, a statement which was greeted by the cheering congregation.
“Whenever I had challenges in my life, I usually ran back to Celestial Church but secretly. And I would see that I got breakthroughs, but right now I said enough is enough. I’ve stop hiding. I have to be identified with the church publicly
And I want to beg you, be praying for Funke Akindele. Every day you’re praying, remember Funke Akindele and everything that belongs to Funke Akindele. That whatever Funke Akindele does should turn to success, and wherever Funke Akindele steps on should be gotten for her.”
