According to our source, who wouldn’t want to be mentioned, “Yes, it is true, Tolu has delivered a baby girl and his dad (Pastor Odukoya) travelled to the US for the naming. Only few people in the church are aware of this, but I am sure the announcement will be made in this Sunday service”.

The newly delivered mother who presently works with Glaxo Smithkline, Ilupeju, Lagos, will be in the United States for close to three months before returning home.

Many of her friends in the UK and America have been very busy on her facebook page sending congratulatory messages to her. Her only response to the barrage of messages posted on her wall is just, Thank you all for the congratulatory messages…we bless God.

Tolu Ijogun, an alumnus of Greensprings School, Lagos and Oral Roberts University, United States, is the first child between Pastor Taiwo Odukoya and his late wife, Pastor Bimbo Odukoya. Her other siblings are Jimi Odukoya, who got married to Kemi Banjoko recently in London and Tobi (a girl), the youngest of the three.

Pastor Taiwo Odukoya has since remarried and has added two kids to his number of children. His new wife, a South African pastor, Rosemary Odukoya has the two children for him (all boys).
