Nigerian comedian, Enenche Obonyilo Peters, otherwise known as Enenche Enenche has rejected the recent claim by the founder of Mt. Zion Faith Ministries, Mike Bamiloye that it was wrong for pastors to invite comedians to church during programmes.

According to Mike, it was not funny at all for pastors to bring in comedians who end up mocking God, the Bible and the Holy Spirit in the name of cracking jokes.

In his reaction, Enenche Enenche said that Bamiloye was probably feeling threatened that drama was no longer selling in Church as much as Comedy.

According to Enenche, “I have read Bro Mike’s views on comedians and the church. I respect his views and would like to categorically state here that he is entitled to his views.

“I know of countless firebrand tongue speaking comedians, the Holy Spirit with them in their check. Like me for example; there are certain words or jokes that can’t fall off my mouth, either by mistake or in the dream.

“Bro Mike should know that no man can manifest beyond his spirit level (Capacity), his emphases should not be comedians in church, but growing the Spirit man of those around church, so that certain things can’t come out.

“When I see Holy Spirit inspired comedy, I know. When spirit meets spirit, they recognize themselves.

“To be sincere, comedy like every other profession has human errors, limitations and deficiencies.

“The fact that we have questionable prophets, does not mean that the office of the prophet should be scrapped.

“The fact that we have pastors messing up on the altars, doesn’t mean that all pastors should not go to church again.

“I think that drama is not marketing in churches again, so Bro Mike is trying to shift attention to his merchandise. Like drama and comedy, both tell story, both have message.

“Bro Mike should have emphasized on the sources and types of storylines comedy is out to bring, instead of outright cutting off of comedians.”

He added that if his talents were not appreciated in the Church, the world would accept him.

“I saw this coming, that’s while I told the world that I am not a gospel comedian, we don’t have secular bankers and gospel bankers, secular soldiers and gospel soldiers… I am a Christian and a comedian. Holy spirit is my gauge.

“As for The Experience 11 comedy he made mentioned of, I was not in support of that joke. I blame the organisers for that. The joke was not suitable for the sensibility and sensitivity of the gatherings.

“Well the church is my home. She is the place I get equipped to manifest to the world. I am not called to the church, but to the world. If Bro. Mike and Co banish me from the church, I would use the spirit within me to face the world.

“Whatsoever thing that is of God, overcomes the World (Including Bro. Mike and Co.)”
