From Lover Boy To Church Boy, How Ex- Nollywood Actor – Emeka Ike Fought All Odds To Became A Pastor.
It is no longer news that so many Nollywood actors and actresses who were veterans of the industry have left the movie industry to pursue other things in life apart from acting.
Some of them went into farming like Chinedu Ikedieze, some are now movie couches like Segun Arinze but for Emeka Ike, who everyone believes to be a ‘ lover boy is now a man of God in the vineyard of the Lord.
Emeka Ike’s Life In The Nollywood Industry
The romantic movie drama would definitely be incomplete for most Nollywood fans if Emeka Ike were not to appear. In the course of his career, his excellent command over romantic roles had earned him that nickname ” Lover Boy, ” and he quickly rose to prominence and became well- known throughout the country.
Emeka Ike’s Marital Backwardness with the first Wife

As a result, when Emeka Ike’s ex-wife alleged domestic abuse in their home, a few years ago, lots of people took her word for it. Several people took her allegation seriously and used it to ridicule his reputation on social media.
His Second Marriage
Did you hear of his second marriage with a South African?
The opposite is true of him; he never lets the difficult times get the better of him. Following that, he had gone on with his life, and later remarried a South African woman with whom he had a daughter. He has been living peacefully and quietly with his new wife irrespective of his failed marriage with his first wife. Definitely, he would want to challenge everyone who mocked him for his first failed marriage.
Emeka Ike is presently married to his second wife.
Because of his union with the South African lady, he had revealed a side of himself that no one could have predicted he wasn’t a pastor as at the time he began his ministerial duties, but he began preaching the gospel of God and urging many to hand over their lives to Christ despite his lack of credentials.

He shared a series of photos of his ordinantion on Instagram page with the caption down below:
” Psalm 105: 15. . . . Touch Not My Anointed And Do My Prophet No Harm. . .
Anointed for the endtimes.
I’m not your regular tithes and offerings pastor. . . .
TRUTH UNDILUTED. . .
I was anointed to serve in HIS VENYARD, last Sunday, the 29th of August,
THANK YOU, LORD FOR CHOOSING unworthy ME. . .
Grace to all! Amen”
