“We Were Famous But Looking For What To Eat…”-Mike Bamiloye Shares Inspiring Story To Marks 60th Birthday (photos)-dailyfamily.ng

Famous gospel film actor, dramatist, producer, director and president of Mount Zion Drama Ministry and Mount Zion Television, Evangelist Mike Bamiloye is 60 today!

The living legend of gospel movies in Nigeria and across the globe marked his 60th birthday anniversary with some session of photoshoot session with his wife, Gloria Bamiloye, his children and granddaughter.

Mike Bamiloye also took to his online platform and share an inspiring story of his life, family and ministry as a way of giving thanks to God and also to encourage other upcoming ministers.

According to him, despite how famous they became in 1992 after the release of their hit movie, Agbara Nla, he and his family members were starving.


Read his story below and be inspired:

“In the Year 1992,
While Working on the Script of AGBARA NLA.
I was in His presence,
Writing the Script as He poured it into my spirit.
Then I got to a point in the Story,
And I could not write further.
When I got to the scene of BOSE Coming across her Boss in her Office called Paulina.

At that point of the Script,
I got stucked.
I could not write any further.
Much as I tried to think of what next in the story,
My mind went blank.
I didn’t know what next to write.
Bose met her boss in the office, and she called herself Paulina.
Then what next?

I didn’t know.
For some hours,
I didn’t know what to write.
As I prayed further with frustration, I heard His Voice plainly in my heart:

That was it.
He wanted me to make a Covenant with Him.
He wanted me to give Him all the Glory that would come from the Story of The Movie,
BECAUSE He wanted to reveal to me the Dark Secret of things in Secret Places.
He never wanted me to take the Glory of the Movie later.
He wanted me to have dinner over the Movie to Him ever before He completely gave me the full script.

So I knelt down right there,
And I promised Him.
I made a Covenant with Him.

And that was it!
GBAM! The door of Secret place of Darkness secrets opened up to me!
I was writing the Script as if I was watching a Movie.
I was seeing the Secret of Paulina.
I saw that she was from the Marine Kingdom.
I saw that she had a Palace in the sea.
I saw how she took Bose into the Marine World through the Wardrobe in her bedroom.
I saw the Mark on her forehead, through which she was being controlled.

I saw further.
The dark secrets of Familiar Spirits, the Emeres, the Witches, the Wizards, the Occult World of Darkness in the Forest.

After the Script,
The Lord gathered us together in one village and we shot the Movie.
It was a Pastor who donated N5000 for us to deposit for the Camera and equipment to shoot the movie, AGBARA NLA.
The following year,
The Lord commanded me to
Go back and rewrite the entire Script in English, so that the message could spread across English speaking places.
In 1994, we were back on film location to shoot “THE ULTIMATE POWER”

Then, there was another crises.

When the movies began to trend on TV, in the whole of the Western Region states and it created an artificial Curfew,
and the English Version began to trend in the East and South and all over,
And about five Movie Marketers were selling the movies all over and refused to give us anything.

The movies were trending all over the place.
We could not even move freely in the market without being mobbed.
And the Marketers were distributing the movies everywhere,
We were all starving back at home.
All of us in our ministry,
With all our children, looking for what to eat.
The Marketers merely gave us a very little amount that could not sustain us.

Then, I became worried and angry.
I went to God and asked questions.
Why God? Why? Why? Why?
We were famous,
But we were starving.

After some time,
He spoke again!

That was it!
Then He gave me a Verse of the Scripture:
Proverbs 22:1 NKJV
“A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, Loving favor rather than silver and gold.”

UP till today, wherever we travelled to all over,
We came across people whose lives have been touched and blessed through these movies.
His favours encompass us.

His Love has guided us all in Mount Zion.
His Covenant for us all in the Ministry have ordered our steps.
He is the same,
Yesterday, today and forever.

And He has never failed since then.”

Buhari: 12 million Nigerian children are afraid of attending school


According to President Buhari, 12 million children in the country have been traumatized and are frightened to attend  school because of the high prevalence of kidnapping.

On Tuesday, October 26, the President announced this during the launch of the Safe School Programme in Abuja.

The President, who was represented at the ceremony by his Chief of Staff, Prof. Ibrahim Gambari, also stated that dealing with security concerns in the country has been difficult.

“The incessant attacks on the country’s education system such as kidnapping, abduction of pupils/students, increased activities of insurgence and general insecurity in our schools have exacerbated many factors responsible for the growing number of out-of-school children.

It is disheartening to note that even when the abducted students are released, the trauma of the incidences remains long in their minds; hence the plan to have teachers trained on psycho-social support.

There are more than 12 million children currently traumatised and afraid of…

APC: Nigerians still trust us, we will win 2023 elections convincingly

John Akpanudoedehe, national secretary of the APC caretaker committee, said on Thursday, October 21 at the inauguration of the state congress appeal committee in Abuja that all members of the APC should see disagreements “within the party as family disputes and should not seek to destroy the platform which helped them in the past.”

“With the huge membership strength we have recorded during the last registration and revalidation exercise, there is no doubt that Nigerians still trust us and that we will win all the upcoming elections convincingly, starting from the governorship elections in Anambra, to Osun, Ekiti, and to the 2023 general election,” he said.

“Therefore, there is a greater need to sustain the trust of our party men and women and indeed all Nigerians.
