All is now set for the release of an engaging documentary titled: The White Garment Church Cherubim and Seraphim (C&S), by young Nigerian filmmaker, Ola Ajayi.
Narrated by Nollywood legend, Richard Mofe- Damijo, the documentary cum biopic is centered around the life of the founder of the Cherubim and Seraphim Church (C&S), St. Moses Orimolade Tunolase.
According to Ola, who is the Producer and Creative Director of the project, the documentary which has many twists and turns seeks to set the records straight and feed movie goers with bare facts from those who should know about Orimolade and the C & S church that he founded.
Ola who has varied experience in supporting production teams in all stages of development, pre-production, postproduction, delivery and marketing of media across the United Kingdom, USA and Africa said, The White Garment Church was a very challenging project but she is elated at the final outcome.
Speaking during a Sneak Preview of The White Garment at Ebony Life Cinema, an excited Ola noted “We took viewers on a journey into the world of the C&S church, exploring its origins in the ancient city of Ikare in Ondo State, Nigeria and how from this small town which was predominantly filled with traditionalists at the time steadily grew a church with a huge following worldwide.
“We took 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 demystify and enlighten people on the practices and doctrines of the C&S church.
“We brought to 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. “This is a fact-based production”
Ola also revealed that the following people were interviewed in the course of the documentary:
Rev Mother Esther Ajayi, Chief Dele Momodu, Special Apostle (Dr.) Oladipupo Gabriel Babatunde Okeyomi
