Biography of Pastor Anwinli Ojeikere (The Winlos) (2)

They didn’t have any “emotional thingy” for each other at first, and weren’t even each others’ choices in terms of a romantic partner. Anwinli wasn’t his ideal woman physically because he wanted some “obvious” things in a woman—she’s still not sure what that means—while Ohis seemed too black to her, with these big black lips that looked like those of a smoker’s. Of course, now she loves his full lips more than anything else about him, but at the time she felt self-conscious about it.

Ohis also wasn’t fluent in English at the time—though he’s improved greatly since then—and was uncomfortable speaking in public. He went into relationships with women who had the physical “shape” that he wanted, while Anwinli did so with the suitors who came her way, which didn’t quite work out as something was lacking in them all. It’s funny how they joke about it now!

In a world where Christian entertainment is often viewed with skepticism, the Winlos have been able to get millions of people across the globe, who have one way or another passed through their audience, to believe in Jesus Christ and have faith in God’s works.

Having started out small with a group of friends, The Winlos has grown over the years and now boasts of a large membership base of talented individuals with skills in various fields.

In just a short time, they have grown to be one of the most sought-after speakers and relationship coaches in the world. They host The MRC EXPERIENCE (MY RELATIONSHIP CONFERENCE) yearly and have had the opportunity to speak in many countries around the world. They are known for their dynamic excellence and bespoke exuberance in all their programs and wherever they go!

They are the authors of the recent best-selling book titled, “His Ex, Her Ex” and blind date.

The Winlos comprise two best friends, Anwinli and Ohis Ojeikere. They first met in their church, where they were involved in the drama ministry. As their friendship grew, so did their love for each other. The two eventually got married and continued spreading the love of God through skits and stage plays.

The Winlos understand the place of spiritual mentorship and leadership. As a result, at various tikes, they have acknowledged Apostle Arome Osayi as a spiritual father as well as Pastor Kingsley Okonkwo and Pastor Mrs. Mildred Okonkwo as revered mentors

In 2015, the couple was nominated for a Golden Icon Academy Movie Award (GIAMA) for Best Inspirational Film—an award that honors and promotes Nigerian filmmakers, actors, and producers abroad.

The couple also released recently another blockbuster movie titled ‘Prophet Suddenly‘. Prophet Suddenly’ narrates the journey of Michael, a once-enthusiastic ministry member who, driven by desperation, loses sight of his true purpose and suffers the consequences. Yet, even when presented with a chance at redemption, he struggles to let go of his newfound powers.
