I never contacted Obinim for a child – Popular actress denies report
Actress Vivian Jill Lawrence has denied reports that the founder of International God’s Way Church, Bishop Daniel Obinim assured her of a child when she was struggling to have her second baby.
The actress who gave birth to her second son, Alfie Nana Amponsah Okobeng on February 23 in USA speaking to Zionfelix Friday morning said, “I’ve never been to Obinim’s church and I never contacted him for a child.” She continued that she spoke to the man of God after an unfortunate incident happened three years ago but not when she was having difficulties with pregnancy. Explaining further, the actress disclosed that she had the chance to talk to Bishop Obinim after Ananse, a filmmaker who used to work at OBTV passed away.
“I never contacted Obinim for a child and I’ve never been to his church. He told me something years ago and that is what I said that people have misquoted me saying Obinim gave me a child," she said. According to her, the family of the deceased needed her advice and that of Bishop Obinim which brought them into contact.
The mother of two continued that the man of God encouraged her to believe in God in times of difficulties but never talked about her pregnancy issues because she was not even expecting a baby then.
"What we talked about was never about my pregnancy. I wasn’t even pregnant at the time. This issue I’m talking about happened like three years ago. I’ve seen Obinim just twice in my entire life,” she told Zionfelix. She added that there was no instance when the two had a conversation about her miscarriage so she cannot fathom why she would wake up to read reports that Bishop Obinim prophesied to her that she would deliver despite her difficulties.
