During the Amazing Grace Pentecostal Church’s 25th anniversary on November 28, she opened up on how she used to have a penchant for jewellery and how everything changed in ten days.

She said:

“I used to love jewelry. I had all kinds and the jewelry had to match every cloth I wore. In those days I used to tell God not to take jewellery from me. If anybody had come to me and told me not to wear jewellery, I would not have listened to the person. I would have wondered where that person is coming from. But by the time God started dealing with me on it, I had no option but to do away with it.”

Alakija recounted that the turning point began when she started bleeding from her ear lobe while she was sleeping.

“That night I just suddenly found I was bleeding from my ear lobe. I did not sleep with earrings that night so I wondered what could have caused the bleeding. My ear lobe became sticky. When soap touched it while I was having my bath, it would hurt.”

She said a week before that experience, her younger sister had a dream that she saw that her ear lobe had cut.

According to the billionaire, the experience was not funny and added that she felt free as soon as she gave up jewellery.

‘Now I am free,” she said.

Netizens reactions

Here are some of the comments from the post:

“All these premonitions are real. I believe them though.”

@madamcondensed commented:

“In summary, let God speak to you about your life and your condition. Not one pastor telling you that makeup and trouser is a sin or bring money to pray for breakthrough.”

@foodbuzzaf said:

“Good. But pls we shouldn’t make doctrines for the general though our own personal experiences. This is one of the major issues among the Christians in Africa.”

@djcomputerlove added:

“Well, spiritual things are only understood by those it applies to individually.”

@laury_wonders said:

“As christians, God deals with us personally and our experience with Him cause us to lose ‘our’ vanity. It’s her experience, it doesn’t mean using jewellery is bad, for some it’s other obsessive affinities. “

@royalty_realm said:

” Anything that involves God I don’t comment. But I think it might just be an infection in your earlobe, madam billionaire.”
