Prophet Jeremiah Omoto Fufeyin, the founder and senior pastor of Mercy City Church in Warri, Delta State, surprised his wife, Anthonia Fufeyin, on her birthday by giving her a generous cash gift of N55 million.
The birthday celebration took place on October 29, 2023, at the headquarters of Mercy City Church and was attended by a large number of worshippers, dignitaries, and celebrities.
The couple, who have been married for some time and have five children together, were captured in a viral video where the prophet presented his wife with a suitcase full of money.
Anthonia was visibly overwhelmed and happily slept on top of the bundles of money, wrapped in nylon.
However, there have been mixed reactions to the gesture, with some people criticizing the prophet for showcasing his wealth and using his wife for public relations.
Additionally, there are questions about the source of the prophet’s riches.
The video has since generated a lot of buzz on social media as commenters shared their thoughts.
