Popular Nigerian comedian, Princess Damilola recently took to Twitter to express her frustration on how she was disgraced during the morning church service at Covenant Christian Centre led by Pastor Poju Oyemade on Sunday November 25, 2012. naijagists.com
The frustrated comedienne said she suffered embarrassment when one of the volunteer ushers of the aforementioned church told her she couldn’t sit in the Church’s front row during Pastor Oyemade’s sermon session.
Princess said the usher told her she wasn’t permitted to sit in the front because she was single.
The disgraced comic actress immediately took to Twitter to express her frustration.
In her own words below:
‘I can’t believe dis Covenant Christian Centre people & their sitting arrangement. Is dis not supposed to be the house of God?! one usher told me I couldn’t sit in front cos I am single. I nearly died of embarrassment, in d presence of God! *sad face’, @PrincessCOMEDY .

‘Y would I lie? I av plenty witnesses.If na lie make their Pastor confront me,he was there wen I raked 4 d usher later in d car park. both of dem better b sure of d facts. I was embarrassed & emotionally rattled.They want 2 look gud 2 Pastor Poju,I only fear God!’.
Princess’s tweets sparked mixed reactions on Twitter with some defending her while the others defending the church’s action barring singles from sitting in the front row.
When @Im_a_MARVEL asked ‘question is what was she wearing? Might be a good reason to have her seat at d back’, Princess replied ‘since u av known me av I EVER dressed improper? They don’t want 2 admit dat usher did wat was WRONG. Sugbon oruko ti ekun a somo e’.
@yewiez tweeted ‘I attend C3 (short for Covenant Christian Centre). I have been told a couple of times by ushers that i can’t sit in front because I’m single’.
But then @oshladiva tweeted ‘I attnd CCC,I’m single,I dnt knw nobody dere n I sit in front quite often,so dats a mute point really.Wat is d FULL story.Dnt make assumptns/conclusions from 1 persons pt of view’.
Humble Pastor Oyemade who observed the serious war of words going on Twitter later apologized to Princess:
‘@PrincessCOMEDY My apologies for what happened on Sunday’, @pastorpoju tweeted. This got Princess more animated as she responded:
‘@pastorpoju accepted but I feel really PAINED u waited dis long knowing wat ur usher did on Sunday was VERY wrong. Its not a sin 2 b SINGLE! OMG! So u r single too, that usher owes a BIG time apology.He spoilt my day,made me regret coming to ur church &hurt my feelings’.
Princess later told her Twitter fans that the pastor has apologized on behalf of the usher:
‘@pastorpoju has apologised on bhalf of his usher dt embarrassed me on Sun. Tanx 2 my friends &fans 4 their words of wisdom while I was hurtin’
According to DailyPost report, the apology tweets have disappeared from Pastor Oyemade’s timeline.
