The Ghanaian multiple award-winning broadcast journalist, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of GDA Media, and a well-respected motivational speaker in Africa, Oheneyere Gifty Anti has reacted to the death of the Nigerian Gospel Singer, Osinachi Nwachukwu. The sensational gospel singer was known for her popular song with Prospa Ochimana titled ‘Ekwueme’. Osinachi Nwachukwu’s death has shocked many people across the globe.
Reports indicate that the gospel musician died at age of 42 due to maltreatment by her husband. Some social media users who know Osinachi Nwachukwu in person took their handles to explain that her husband was abusing her when she was alive. And this is probably the cause of the singer’s death. However, Oheneyere Gifty Anti said that the complaints of people about the bad treatment from her husband now are not necessary.
According to her, there are a lot of Christian women who are facing this abuse in their marriage but cannot walk out or divorce their husbands because Pastors have been telling them that it is sin to get a divorce. Some women are also being maltreated and beaten every day but are afraid to walk out of the marriage because they use the children as an excuse. Oheneyere Gifty Anti stated that this is what she has been telling women that they need to leave their marital home before cutting their lives on earth short.
The Ghanaian journalist asked Ghanaian women to use Osinachi Nwachukwu’s death as a lesson and seek help, walk out, or divorced their husbands when the man has shown severally that he has an intention to kill them.
This is what she wrote on her official Instagram account:
“ANOTHER DEATH IN THE NAME OF GOD HATES DIVORCE
By Oheneyere Gifty Anti -OGA
I have seen many of you post,’ tag, and send me news and other revelations about the life and death of the Nigerian Gospel Musician Osinachi (May she Rest In Peace).
Anytime I talk about abuse and condoning of abuse in the church by SOME pastors and religious leaders I get attacked. But I won’t stop talking about it.
Many Christian women are enduring abuse in the name of “God hates divorce”. “There is nothing God can not do”. “Trust God”.
There are many women in the church, mosque, tabernacle, etc., who are Broken but have no one to talk to or run to because they will be made to feel they don’t believe or trust God enough. Smh
Now people are speaking up about what they know about Osinachi’s abusive husband and the horrible life she lived? Why now?
There are some of you reading this who are in the same situation. Christians, Muslims, Traditionalists, etc who are in the same situation but are afraid to speak up, seek help, or walk out.
I do not judge you!! I don’t judge anyone enduring abuse in their relationships. I am not God and can’t pretend to understand your situation.
But please, God did not create you to come and suffer or endure abuse. It is not His will for you to be abused and killed. No!!
God, Allah (or whatever name you call your creator) is faithful. There is nothing impossible for Him.
But HE HAS GIVEN US WISDOM, LET US USE IT.
RISE WOMAN. RISE AND FIGHT FOR YOURSELF.
DO NOT ENDURE ABUSE IN ANY FORM OR SHAPE IN THE NAME OF RELIGION!!!!
SPEAK UP!!! SEEK HELP!!!! LEAVE TO LIVE!!!
Today when you go to church, search your heart and ask yourself questions.
To the Christian Woman… God is Real.
Jesus Christ came to die for us to save us!!
YOUR BLOOD IS NOT THAT PURE TO SAVE ANYONE!!
Live woman!! Do not die in the name of “for the sake of the children”.
USE THE WISDOM GOD HAS GIVEN YOU”.
