Many Nigerians only know the prophet with his popular nicknames but are not aware of his real name, or state of origin. Before I go into things you missed out about Odumeje, let's discuss first his biography, controversies.

"The Lion" born on the 9th of September goes by the name Chukuemeka Ohanaemere born to Mr. and Mrs. Pius Ohanamere of Orsu Ihete Ukwa in Orlu Local Government Area. Chukwuemeka is the third child in the family of six.

His church also known as The Land of Freedom is located in Onitsha, Anambra State. Odumeje has special ways of ministering and performing his deliverance which is usually criticized by many Nigerians. His approaches include lying on some of his members, being brutal with his deliverance, throwing people on empty chairs, one would think he learned those approaches form WWW superstars fight.

Apart from his spiritual life, he is a lover of good music and football and even aspires to become a football or music legend. I guess, if he finally decides to retire from being the liquid metal, he could take up a profession in music or football. Prophet Odumeje is married to his amiable wife and both are blessed with four kids and are based in Anambra State.

Fun Fact! In the year 2000, odumeje went fully from just evangelism into full ministerial work. Although life was difficult for him considering he quit his leather business for full-time ministry, he said his mother has always been his financial strength.

His unusual deliverance and miracle sessions like lifting his members and throwing them got him his name as "Heavyweight Servant of the Most High".

Another Controversy is the fact that a supposed man of God dances to secular songs every time he decides to spray his wad of dollars. He has been caught on camera dancing "Zanku" with his Nollywood actor friend, another time he was also seen dancing to "One More Night" by Mr. P on his birthday during a church service.
