After the success of Skinny Girl in Transit which ran for five seasons, Ndani TV started a new web series titled “OGA! Pastor”. However, three episodes in and the online media platform has proceeded to stop the series and erase every trace of it from their website and YouTube page.
Episodes of the Ndani original, written by Lani Aisida, premieres live every Friday by 3 pm, however, staunch followers of the show were left disappointed when the fourth episode didn’t air.
OGA Pastor was centred around a philandering cleric, Pastor Deoye Geshinde (Uche Arukwe), his wife, Olaitan. The Pastor of GGBC confessed at the beginning of the series that he was sleeping with a woman that was not his wife. The story unravelled in episode three when Pastor Gesh was shown in a hotel room with another woman after he cancelled a prior outing with his wife.
The sudden termination of the series powered by Guaranty Trust Bank has hurt fans of the show as the next episode would have revealed more about the relationship between Pastor Gesh and his side chick.
With the story arc similar to the ensuing controversy that the pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), Biodun Fatoyinbo is currently involved in, some have said the sudden crackdown on the web series and Pastor Fatoyinbo’s rape scandal could be connected.
The controversy surrounding Fatoyinbo recently made a huge turn on Thursday, 4th of July, 2019 after another lady alleged the celebrity pastor raped her. Timi Dakolo’s wife, Busola Dakolo, had earlier accused the pastor of raping her twice as a minor in a four-part interview with YNaija.
Fatoyinbo, who founded the church headquartered in Abuja with branches in Lagos, Port Harcourt, and Dubai, has since denied the accusations levelled against him but has taken a leave of absence from the pulpit after his spiritual mentors talked to him. Dakolo, who accused the Pastor Fatoyinbo of rape has filed a formal complaint to the police.
However, there is every possibility that this is simply not the truth. There could be a thousand other reasons why OGA! Pastor was taken down.
