On Tobore Ovuorie and The Alleged Expose of a Human Trafficking Syndicate

Posted in: , ,

About a week ago, comedian ALi Baba shared some tweets where he suggested that the pastors of large churches needed to have development funds for their church members instead of using the church tithes and offerings to enrich themselves and stock up on more exotic cars for their garages.

LOL...Third Eye is a programme that puts creatives on the spot, plumbing the depths of who they are and where their art comes from.
