Founder of Mount Zion movies, mike Bamiloye celebrates the 32nd Wedding Anniversary He also used the medium to explain how he got married to his wife without having a job.
Mike who shared a throwback photo from their wedding 32 years ago wrote, “THROWBACK: OCTOBER 7TH, 1988, ENGAGEMENT DAY.”
He added, “Very Innocent and humble girl. Age: 24 Years Old. The man she said she would marry had no tangible job but acting of drama up and down.
“The families were so skeptical and would have rejected this plan, but this young boy and girl said they wanted to marry. This girl was entering into a future which only God knew.
Me: 28 Years Old. Full-time drama minister and no other job. Owing to my Landlord about nine months’ house-rent at the time I entered into full-time ministry. It was Families who rose up to support this wedding o.
“Because, me, I had nothing. No money, no nothing. It was my Big Sister who rented our first house for us so that we would not come and be living in her house. And it was my wife’s Uncle who gave a little money to do some little things.
“It was my Best Man who bought my Suit, Shirt, and a tie. It was my Wife’s Aunty who sent us the Shoes I wore from America. It was one of our ministry members who gave us the money we deposited for the Wedding gown because we had gone to three places where we wanted to rent a Wedding Gown for N500.
“It was the money we saved we used to deposit for our furniture for the living room.
Forget about the bed. A mattress was good for us for the first five or six months.
“It was all the money gift we were dashed on Wedding Day we used to balance some debts and outstanding of the Wedding.
“So, the following week on Saturday, when we were going to meet the rest of Mount Zion brethren in Ilesa for drama ministration, GLORIA and I stood beside the road waiting for the miracle of a car lift to Ilesa, because there was no money on us again: A WEEK AFTER WEDDING!
