People Told Adeboye To Divorce His Wife

From the look of things, it appears the lucky couple and their sextuplets are thriving.

Adeboye told the Standard there had been pressure on him to divorce his wife and marry a different woman because of their difficulties in getting pregnant.

“I made it known to them that I love my wife so deeply,” he said. “I assured them that my wife, Ajibola, would surely give birth to baby for me at God’s own time and in His season.”
