The mother of Cross Ike Okonkwo one of the stars and contestants at the Reality Television show, BBNaija season 6 has beckoned on her son to use his fame and platform to preach the gospel of God.
Cross Ike Okonkwo 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.
In a video snippet, the mother of the reality TV show star noted that her son got into the show to preach ‘God’s gospel’.
She said: “It is funny but it is not funny,”. “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.”
