Prophet Marcus hosts Guests to Asun Night
@ Country Home

Late into
the night after the Thursday 26th Wake Keep and Christian Song
service, lot of dignitaries and VIPs were driven to Ladawo Quarters Ode-Aye where Prophet (Dr.) Marcus Tibetan hosted his guests to sumptuous meal
and drinks. The entire area was cordoned by gun wielding military officers
courtesy Lieutenant Colonel Firopo
. Ladawo Quarters is where Prophet
Marcus and his younger brother Colonel Firopo had their country homes
and one of the VIPs who stormed Oladawo Quarters is Ogun state real
estate magnate Asiwaju Emmanuel Olajide Awosedo. It was
another carnival of sort as the Prophet asked his aides to slaughter a goat for
his guests for the popular Asun feast. Guests kept coming in
one after the other to take their meal before leaving for their various hotels
and guest houses in Ode-Aye and Okitipupa.

How the Tibetans drove tourism to

Okitipupa town is 10 minutes drive from Ode
but the town equally felt the vibes of the Tibetans as major hotels and Guest Houses in town were taken over
by the Prophet and his younger brother Colonel
for their guests.  Prophet Marcus Tibetan practically paid for all the over forty rooms of Coastal Hotel, a three star hotel with
best of facilities at Coastal Royal
, Okitipupa and equally
made available security vehicles and other vehicles to transport guests to and
fro the hotel. Okitipupa is one of
Ondo state’s rich towns with richest natural resources deposited for economic
gains (It is the Headquarter of the famous Oluwa Glass). However, in the last
one year, the Government of Ondo  State
under Dr. Segun Mimiko has not deem
it fit to give electricity or instruct the Gencos to supply light to both Okitipupa
and 5 other communities (Ode-Aye inclusive) in Ondo state. Shame!

The Friday Funeral

Only few
People could schedule their mother’s funeral for a Friday and the patronage
will still be high. That was what the Tibetans
achieved with their November 27th date as more guests stormed Ode
from all walks of life to celebrate the life of Mama Olufunmilayo Maria Tibetan. The
event kick started with a snake drive of motorcade amidst convoy of other
exotic cars from the center of town to Gospel
Faith Mission International
Beautiful Gate Assembly, by 18, Lapoki Street, Ode-Aye where a
conglomerate of Pastors and Evangelists received the body. The BMC funeral executives were at their
very best as they added drama and style to the carriage with dance and blowing
of trumpets to the admiration of onlookers and passer-byes. The Okada motor
cyclist also made fortune as there was traffic of legs from Ladawo
to Lapoki Street.

Why BMC dressed Celestial for Mama

Unlike in
other funeral events where traditional attires or suits are worn to honor the
dead in Africa, which at times is a reflection of the person’s profession while
alive, the funeral company BMC
dressed in Celestial Church of Christ
attire for Mama Maria Tibetan. The
twelve BMC officials who handled her funeral activity were dressed in the Onibode
(Usher) classic attire of the Celestial
Church of
Christ. Close sources
who work with Prophet MKO Tibetan
told this blog that it was the Prophet himself who ordered that his mum’s
funeral should be given a Celestial treatment by the Bolaji Mendes Charles’ BMC

How Prophet Tibetan cracked ribs at church

While he was
called to give the vote of thanks, Prophet
(Dr.) MKO Tibetan
used the good opportunity to do two things; to offer what
he calls his 3 best songs and to equally go memory lane to recall how he and
his siblings were raised at GOFAMINT, Beautiful
Gate Assembly
in the late 60s towards early 70s. He declared “This is my
church and I cannot forget what you people passed unto me as a kid and till
date I am still standing on those principles. I have just only a wife”. The
famous Prophet nearly broke guests’ jaws when he rendered what he tagged his “3
Best Songs”. But before that, Prophet
recognized his Sunday School Teacher of the 70s Pastor Akinnubi A.O. who was among the officiating ministers,
thanking him for instilling some Christian principles in him and his siblings.
He later sang his 3 best songs one of which is “Iwo ni mo wa Gbega” which he sang in concert with the church choir
to the delight of the congregation. His second song drew laughter and applause
from guests and worshippers, the Prophet said that particular song is only sang
anytime he owes his wife a heavy amount of money and she begins to trouble him
for payback. “If I see that she is disturbing me and I cant sustain the heat, I
will put on my white garment and lie on the bed and start singing “Ao pami lara da, ao de mi lade ogo, ao si
gbemi niyawo nile ogo lodo baba”.
His gesture got many reeling with
laughter. His last song “Oya ninu Ogo”
electrified the congregation. The Prophet thanked all and prayed for their save
return home.
Mummy and Daddy Tibetan arrives for Reception

The Woman Prophet Tibetan raised her
husband came

Her name is Faith Okogwu, this lanky lady from
Delta State stormed Ode-Aye for Prophet
She is one of the few Nigerians the Prophet has touched their
lives. For Mrs. Faith Okogwu who
spoke with this blog “Prophet Marcus is a true Prophet of the Living God”. The
Prophet is said to have raised her husband from death many years ago. The man
who had passed on without writing his will was said to have been taken to the
Prophet in great confusion and once the Prophet seek a private praying session
with his corpse, he later came out asking his wife to go give him water to
drink to the bewilderment of confused family members. Everyone was surprised.
The man was said to have lived additional 10 years before he finally passed
away at an advanced age few years ago. Since then, Mrs. Okogwu has been grateful and that was her reason for storming
the occasion. She was both at the church and the reception.

….And the Prophet cried  

It must have
been his most challenging moment and like Jesus
at the tomb of Lazarus, Prophet
equally wept at the tomb of his mum at No 3, Ladawo Street, Ode
where Mama’s interment took place. The Prophet who has kept a bold
and courageous face in the last 3 days suddenly lost emotion and burst into
heavy tears as he watched his mum being lowered into the grave. Prophet Marcus remained inconsolable
and the crowd of guests, photo journalists and shepherds of GOFAMINT took their
turn to pacify the prophet who felt deeply pained that his lovely mum was being
lowered into the soil even at age 80. Both
Prophet Marcus
and his siblings including Colonel Roy were later led into the ambience of their octogenarian
father, the 95 years old Pa Festus
Okenola Tibetan
inside the living room of the house.  Pa
calmed all nerves and preached to his children to take their mum’s
exits as the act of God. The entire atmosphere was that of a sober moment as
Mama’s kids spent another 30 minutes with their father before heading for the

Why Dublin based Elizabeth Pope
couldn’t go for Reception

Her social
name is Elizabeth Pope but her
native name is Tope Tibetan. She is
the beautiful and intelligent first child of Prophet (Dr.) Marcus Tibetan. This Accounting undergraduate of a
leading University in Dublin-Republic of
was late Mama Maria
Oluwafunmilayo Tibetan’s
closest grand child and that was one of the
reasons Tope broke down at the sight
of seeing her grand ma being lowered
down to her final resting place. The beautiful Tope Tibetan aka Elizabeth
Pope who took time among all her
siblings to travel from her Dublin base to Nigeria to witness Mama’s last
journey on earth quickly left Ode-Aye for Lagos after Mama’s
interment at 3, Ladawo Street, Ode-Aye and from Lagos, she
proceeded back to her base in Dublin
as she couldn’t bear the irreparable loss of losing such a compassionate Grand
Patriarch of the Tibetan Dynasty, Ode-Aye consoling his children after the burial of their mum

CSP Bode Ojajuni storms Ode-Aye with
heavy mobile Police presence

Former Lagos
State Police Public Relations Officer now Chief
Superintendent of
Police Bode
was one of the big personalities who stormed the Friday November 27th
event at Ode-Aye. CSP Bode

of all eyes was at the time the Commandant of Mobile Police Force Unit,
Asaba-Delta State and he came in full force with all his men
who equally took strategic positions on the field with Colonel Roy’s men.  Bode Ojajuni is equally loved by the
locals in Ode-Aye as his own town Igbotako is a distant town from Ode-Aye.

How Princess Toyin Kolade brought
Lagos to Ode-Aye

This lovely
and delightful Lagos business woman Princess
Toyin Kolade
stole more attention with her arrival at the event at exactly
4pm in her black Hummer Jeep. Princess Toyin Kolade who is the
founding Chairman of Fisolak Group
of Companies and the Iyalaje of Apapa Land in Lagos made
many of the musicians who were on the field to battle for her attention as she
went and danced with Prophet (Dr.)
Marcus Tibetan
and his wife Madam
Bosede Christina Tibetan
on arrival before she made a second round outing
to dance with Colonel Firopo and his
wife, Bisola (Nee Adefarati). Princess Toyin Kolade equally brought
the Lagos party spirit to Ode-Aye as she did not only shared
gifts of soap, spaghetti, cream and other valuables at the event but she
equally brought a loaded bus of varieties of meals like Amala & Gbegiri, Fried
and Jollof Rice
, Pounded Yam and
verities of exotic drinks of various brands and labels to the party. Her
arrival instantly changed the mood of the party as every one wanted to meet Princess Toyin Kolade.

Why the Party was Successful

The Ode-Aye
Reception for Mama Maria Oluwafunmilayo
was largely successful because of the kind of love exhibited
between her elderly kids, Prophet Marcus
and Lieutenant Colonel
Oluwafiropo Tibetan
aka Colonel Roy. For instance the two
largest tents on the CMS School Playing Ground, Irokin
Ode-Aye were that of both Colonel Roy and Prophet Marcus. For instance on Prophet Marcus’s tent, the inscription “Oluso” which signifies his
position as a shepherd was put on the tent. (Oluso means Shepherd) while Colonel Ropo’s tent has “Colonel Roy” inscribed on it. Each of
them equally had their distinguished guests seated comfortably. While Colonel Roy’s guests are majorly of
Military intelligentsias who don’t fraternize with the press, Prophet Marcus’s guests are of the
Lagos social circle, business people, academia and clergy. The two musicians
who played equally played for both Colonel
and Prophet Marcus as there
was no discrimination and no attempt by one to torpedo the other in form of
brandishing of ego. For instance, proper military escort was given to Prophet Marcus by his brother Colonel
and you wouldn’t know whose guests is who as their guests were served
by same food vendor. Colonel Roy
took his dance with his own crowd of invited guests immediately after his
brother, Prophet Marcus danced and
each of them equally went to spray each other not minding who is bigger or
smaller. This attitude according to Elder
Larry Ogunmusere
, an uncle to Prophet
and Captain Roy is one of
the legacies Mama Maria Oluwafunmilayo Tibetan enshrined in her
children before she departed the world in September 6th, 2015.
