It is unclear if Nollywood actor, Jimmy Odukoya, son of Bimbo and Taiwo Odukoya would leave acting after his appointment as Senior Pastor of the Fountain of Life Church.
Odukoya, known for his role in the Netflix hit, “The Woman King” was named a Senior Cleric during the church’s service at its headquarters Lagos on Sunday.
Addressing the congregation, Rotimi Okpaise, a pastor, said the late Taiwo Odukoya confided in the Board of Trustees members about the succession plan before his demise.
Okpaise said the BoT unanimously elected Jimmy as the Senior Pastor and chairperson of the board and fixed September 30 for his Installation.
It is unclear how this new role would affect Odukoya’s acting career, having previously mentioned in a 2021 interview that being a pastor does not in any way affect his acting career.
He said: “How does being a pastor affect my acting career? I don’t believe it, some people have different opinions, one is if I am an actor, I should be a Christian actor and I say there is no such thing.
