- The mother of former reality television show star Cross Ike Okonkwo, has urged her son to use his celebrity and platform to preach the gospel of God.
- In a video clip, the mother of the reality TV show star stated that her son entered the show to preach “God’s gospel.“
“It is funny but it is not funny,” she said. “Companies are coming, brands are coming for their products. I, myself; I have my own product; the gospel is my own product. That is why I said, ‘Cross, as companies are calling you to be their ambassador, Holy Ghost school is calling you, Cross, to be our ambassador to preach the gospel.’ That is what I want. But Cross, other companies can pay you but we are not going to pay; you will do it for God.
“This is what I was called for and created for and whatever I can do to please and serve God, I will. My calling is preaching the gospel. God sent you there for the gospel.
“As companies are using your platform, I will also use it to preach the gospel. So what I ask you is that all the time whenever I need you, please give your consent for the gospel that we preach. All these your lovers, you know that there are a lot of them, tell them that Jesus needs them. So bring them to the Holy Ghost. We are going to ‘ship’ together. That is what I learnt from Big Brother, ‘shipping together’. We are going to ‘ship’ together with all your lovers and fans, in the name of Jesus.”
Born, Cross Ike Okonkwo, he contested and was a finalist in the BBNaija season 6, Shine Ya Eye edition. Cross Ike was born and raised in Anambra State in a family of four; he is the first son and the eldest child.
