Folorunso Alakija, a Nigerian millionaire businesswoman, told how God forbade her from wearing jewellery at a church session.
The Founder of Rose of Sharon Group, when preaching in a Lagos church on Sunday, November 28, revealed it took God 10 days to have her stop wearing jewellery totally.
She used to enjoy jewellery and had a variety of items to complement her outfits, according to her, until she had the life-changing experience.
"I used to love jewelry," she stated, according to Church Times. "I had all kinds, and the jewelry had to match every cloth I wore. In those days, I used to tell God not to take jewelry from me. If anybody had come to me and told me not to wear jewelry, I would not have listened to the person.
"I would have wondered where that person is coming from. But by the time God started dealing with me on it, I had no option but to do away with it."
Alakija, who is one of the wealthiest women in Africa, said the change started when she started bleeding from her ear lobe one night.
"That night, I just suddenly found I was bleeding from my ear lobe. I did not sleep with earrings that night, so I wondered what could have caused the bleeding. My ear lobe became sticky. When soap touched it while I was having my bath, it was hurting," she said.
The clergywoman said that before that experience, her younger sister reached out to her and said she dreamt that her earlobe had cut.
"That dream was almost becoming a reality. At a particular time when we were praying, a nephew of mine asked if I put lipstick on my earlobe because it had become red. The experience was not funny. But to cut a long story short, it took ten days for God to deal with me. Finally, I gave it up. Now I am free," she concluded.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
