Ola Ajayi, a daughter to popular cleric, Reverend Esther Ajayi, aka Iya Adura, has concluded work on her documentary titled, ‘The White Garment Church Cherubim and Seraphim (C&S)’.
The documentary cum biopic is centred around the life of the founder of the C&S church, Moses Orimolade, and is narrated by Nollywood veteran, Richard Mofe- Damijo.
Ola, who doubles as the producer and creative director of the project, stated that the documentary, which has many twists and turns, ‘seeks to set the records straight and provide facts from those who should know about Orimolade and the church he founded’.
Ola, who has worked with production teams on pre-production, post-production, delivery and marketing of media across the United Kingdom, United States of America and Africa, noted that the project was a challenging one but she was elated at the final outcome.
Speaking during a preview of the documentary at the Ebony Life Cinema, Victoria Island, Lagos, Ola said, “We take viewers on a journey into the world of the C&S church, exploring its origins in the ancient city of Ikare, Ondo State, which is a small town that was filled with traditionalists but became the birthplace of a church that has spread to other parts of the world.
“We take an in-depth look into the myths that have surrounded the church for almost a hundred years and the various internal conflicts and struggles plaguing the church and how a new generation of millennials within the church have begun to change the narrative with a goal to enlighten people on the practices and doctrines of the church.”
Describing it as a ‘fact-based production’, Ola added, “We brought to the fore the fact that the church places special emphasis on the direct personal experience of God through Baptism of the holy spirit as shown in the Biblical account of the Day of Pentecost and nothing more. To make is as credible as possible, we interviewed several stakeholders of the church, including Revd. Esther Ajayi; Special Apostle (Dr) Oladipupo Gabriel; His Eminence (Baba Aladura) Michael Ebahor-Erebi and Pastor Frank Adegoke.
