As they celebrate the faithfulness of God on their 49th anniversary
this year. Here are 20 things you would never believe Daddy GO does:

• Adeboye married twice surprise face hahaha…not what you’re
thinking. He had a traditional marriage first then a white wedding in
church about two years after.

• Adeboye couldn’t afford a ring then but he promised his wife that
she will never lack anything and has since kept this promise.

taste the food. He also advices on which food needs more seasoning or

totally avoiding fizzy drinks and alcohol. Now, he only drinks water,
fresh fruit juice and teas.

• Adeboye would never leave Nigeria and is never more than a 2-hours’
drive or flight away from his wife on the month of her birthday. This
is one of the promises he made to her when they got married.

till date. This even increases year by year as inflation goes up

over the years and putting her dreams on hold so he could become who he
