Madubuko reveals why many people left his Church after marrying Emmy Kosgei
Apostle Anselm Madubuko – the husband of popular gospel singer Emmy Kosgei, has revealed that many Christian faithful left his church after he got married to the Taunet Nelel star.
In a depth interview with Nigeria’s Sunday Punch, Apostle Madubuko opened up candidly about his relationship with Emmy – back in the day, and today.
Showering praises on his flame, the founder of The Revival Assembly Church said Emmy’s a darling to many in Nigeria – despite upon wedding him, a number of women abandoning his ministry.
“She (Emmy) is real and for the two years that we have been married we have never had any misunderstanding. She was and still is accepted and loved by everyone,” he said.
“We did not need to convince anyone, but some women in church thought I should have married them instead. They felt they could tell me how to lead my life. Many people left the church after I married her. It was terrible experience but I thank God that I did not miss it.”
Divulging exclusive details of how he met the top Kenyan gospel talent, the man of clothe recounted: “I met my present wife at a conference in Mombasa, Kenya. She came to sing while I was there to preach. Before my first wife passed away, we were supposed to hold our annual conference and she specifically asked me to invite Emmy to minister.”
“She also asked me to invite her and her team for lunch in our home. Unfortunately, she did not live to see that happen. I did not know she would die when she did. I did not have any relationship with my present wife until my late wife passed away,” Anselm explained.
It is after his first wife’s demise when God revealed to him that it is Emmy He would want him to marry.
“After my wife died, I did not want to marry again because I did not know where or how to start looking for a wife after over 20 years in marriage. But God had other plans. I was thinking of what next to do when God suddenly dropped it in my spirit that Emmy would become my wife.”
Madubuko admitted being clueless on how he’d propose to Emmy.
“I did not know how it would happen because we were not romantically involved. She told me about her relationship and I counseled her. I kept it to myself.”
However, the people around him would later prophesy their union.
“All over sudden, people close to me, including my son, began telling me that they foresaw me marrying, Ololo, which is what they called her.”
This prophecy encouraged him: “So, I picked up the phone, called her and told her I would marry her but she declined.”
He continued: “While people advised me to wait for five years or more, God asked me how many years it would take to forget about my late wife.”
“But, I realised that ten years would not make any difference trying to forget someone whom you had spent over 20 years of your life with.”
Concluding with a punch, Madubuko stated: “For my sake, He asked me to marry again. I did and it was and still is a wonderful experience. I found love again and I have no regrets.”
Anselm and Emmy got married in August 2013 in a colorful wedding held in Kenya – one year after he lost his first wife, Connie Madubuko.
