The son of Pastor Taiwo Odukoya, Jimmy Odukoya, has lauded his father for the bravery he showed as he led a worship session in church on Sunday morning just days after losing his wife, Nomthi.
Recall that Nomthi, the wife of Pastor Taiwo Odukoya, the founder of the Fountain of Life Church in Lagos died on 9 November 2021 after she endured a battle with cancer.
Pastor Taiwo Odukoya defied all odds this morning when he took the mic to worship God regardless of the mourning he is in. This move has caused his son to highly regard his father for having a strong heart.
Jimmy Odukoya captioned his post as:
”I sit here and marvel at the man my father @pastortaiwo is, He lost his wife @pastornomthi on Tuesday ; (2nd wife he would loose to death ) and here He is worshipping on stage in church on Sunday leading the church to worship; What manner of man is this ? His Strength in the midst of pain; His Courage in the face of fear; His Faith in a sea of doubt; His Perseverance through disappointment; His Wisdom amidst chaos; His Dedication beyond personal loss; His Unwavering Love for God bypassing his present reality are what legends are made of !! The battles He has fought would break a lesser man
I am FULLY PERSUADED that the very breath of God flows through him and that is what continues to strengthen him. Ah Pastor Taiwo Odukoya!! NA MAN YOU BE !!! What an honour to come from your loins and carry your last name! What a privilege to be your son! What an advantage to have your DNA !! To a General in God’s Army; Your battle scars sing of your victories ! I salute you Sir! No son could have a better Father!!”

Janet Hubert Hospitalized: “Anger Will Eat You Alive”
Janet Hubert, affectionally known as Aunt Viv from the hit sitcom, ‘Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,’ shared that she was hospitalized. Though she didn’t give a reason, Hubert did go into detail about anger and what it can do to someone.
Posting a picture from the “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” reunion that happened last year, Hubert expressed that holding on to anger would eat you alive. She also addressed Will Smith and told him that she loved him.
Her caption read, “Don’t waste precious time people in anger. Yes people will do you wrong and you must fight for truth no matter how long, and IF you can get the TRUTH you seek…find love again as we have.”
Hubert continued, “Life is too short as I am in hospital as I write this to all of you. Holding onto anger will eat you alive. But truth at any cost[.]” Hubert ended her message with a note for Will Smith, “Reputation is PRICELESS. I LOVE YOU WILL, for being strong enough to tell truth, and share your hurts and trauma. Now we close the doors and live our lives. PEACE OUT!”
As you know, Smith and Hubert had a feud for decades that was a result of her leaving the show. Hubert accused Will of getting her fired, but Will insisted the real issue was Hubert wanted the show to be built around her character, Aunt Viv.
“She’s mad now, but she’s been mad all along. She said once, ‘I’ve been in the business for ten years and this snotty-nosed punk comes along and gets a show.’ No matter what, to her, I’m just the Antichrist,” Will stated back in 1993.
The two ended their feud in 2020 when the reunion happened. While speaking with one another, Hubert asked, “I just wanted to know one thing–why did you guys go so far? I lost so much…You have no idea.”
Will admitted to being insensitive and understood how he “made the set very difficult.”
Roomies, let’s wish her a speedy recovery.
Master P Wants Judge To Declare Him As Single After Being Separated For More Than 10 Years
According to TMZ, Master P is ready to move on with his life after being separated for more than 10 years.
In documents obtained by TMZ, Master P is asking for his single status to be reinstated. After his estranged wife Sonya Miller filed for divorce in 2013, and the two settled financial issues in 2016, the paperwork for their divorce was never submitted.
As a result, the mogul wants “bifurcation of his divorce,” and intends to handle the actual divorce at a later time.
If you recall, the two actually separated in 2010. In 2016, the music mogul attempted to get $10,473 in child support and $16,574 in spousal support reduced.
He reportedly had their children–Hercy, Itali and Mercy–to write letters to the judge explaining why they are better off living with their father opposed to living with their mother.
In her letter to the judge, their 17-year-old daughter Itali said, “Although I love being with my mom I was unable to keep my grades up. Unfortunately, my mom was dealing with addiction issues that affected my older sister, who hasn’t even had the opportunity to graduate high school.”
Roomies, what do y’all think of this?
CNN Has Terminated Chris Cuomo Effective Immediately
That was quick! Roommates, as we previously reported, Chris Cuomo was suspended indefinitely on Dec. 1st from his position at CNN after details emerged about how he helped his brother Andrew Cuomo amid his sexual harassment scandal. However, the network has moved swiftly and officially terminated him.
In a statement, CNN said, “Chris Cuomo was suspended earlier this week pending further evaluation of new information that came to light about his involvement with his brother’s defense. We retained a respected law firm to conduct the review and have terminated him, effective immediately.” The statement continued, “While in the process of that review, additional information has come to light. Despite the termination, we will investigate as appropriate.”
Chris also broke his silence and released a statement of his own. Chris tweeted, “This is not how I want my time at CNN to end, but I have already told you why and how I helped my brother. So let me now say, as disappointing as this is, I could not be more proud of the team at Cuomo Prime Time and the work we did as CNN’s #1 show in the most competitive time slot. I owe them all and will miss that group of special people who did really important work.”
Although Chris has played down his involvement with the Governor’s office, massive details became available Monday through a huge document dump. Documents released by New York Attorney General Letitia James showed that while Chris worked as one of CNN’s top anchors, he worked unpaid to aide the Governor. A CNN spokesperson declined to share any further detail about the information provided in this report. Roommates, we’ll continue to keep ya’ll updated if more details surface!
