Joyce Oyedepo, last child of Bishop David Oyedepo, the General Overseer of Winners Chapel, on Sunday, 14th August took to her social media page to blast critics saying she can never be like her mum and she's totally different and crazy...
According to DailyPost, Joyce took to her Facebook page on Sunday,
saying she tried as much as possible
to be who she really is and the that
post had since trailed mixed
reactions on social media.
Below is what she wrote:
“Those who know me know that I’m crazy. I don’t blend in. I’m the one who’s ‘yingin’ when everyone else is ‘yangin’. I’ve been called an outcast by many outsiders. But the more I tried to fit in, the more I stood out. My differences wouldn’t let me stay the same.
“Every day, I’ve come to let the
differences that make me, shine
through. Tired of the need to stay
the same, I’ve come to accept the
“I’m not the same. And as long as I stay rare, there’d always be a need for all of me. For there would
always be room for rarity. I have
decided not to let the miracle of my
birth be the sole miracle of my
existence. The proof, is in my crazy.
“I’ve received way too many
personal messages about this post
below and so for the honest few, I
have chosen to make a few things
clear. It seems that many of us have
misunderstood things too easily.
“You all have seen my posts for a
while now, some of you have seen
them for years on end, and you
know that I absolutely adore my
family. That cannot, has not, and will
not ever change. Anyone who tries to insinuate any different is purely
looking for loopholes that just don’t
“To that group, you may need to find more profitable work because that, already is a failed venture. Then, there is this other group that expects me to be EXACTLY like my mother or sister, who are role models to many including myself, especially myself.
“Thing is, you also may need to edit
your expectation because that too,
will not be happening. I’m me and
will never be anyone else. I can
never be anyone else and will not even try to.
“I love that my sister and I are not
walking replicas of my mother. She
teaches us not to be. She teaches
that we are who God has called us to be, and that, with all sincerity. Our
differences make us unique, and that makes us an epic loving family. That, we are grateful to God for.
“Ps, “crazy” purely means/meant
different. “This, you would
understand if you read through the
post honestly, completely and some
of us, without negative intent. So, to
those who honestly were confused on the original post, I hope you have received the needed clarity, but to those still looking for loopholes, sorry, failed venture.
“Be you. Be who God created you to
be. Yes, have role models (& you
always can start with my mother and sister–right here on Facebook even if you have nowhere else to turn).
“But don’t ever try to dim your uniqueness to fit in with the
“world’s” definition of perfect. God
bless y’all,” she added.
