Alakija opens up on why she stopped wearing jewelry, says God directed her

Billionaire businesswoman, Folorunso Alakija, recently opened up on her decision to stop wearing jewellery.
Alakija, who is also an apostle made the disclosure at the weekend, while ministering in Lagos at the Amazing Grace Pentecostal Church.
According to Alakija, it took ten days for God to make her stop wearing jewellery despite her love for it.
She said: “I used to love jewelry. I had all kinds and the jewelry had to match every cloth I wore. In those days I used to tell God not to take jewelry from me.
If anybody had come to me and told me not to wear jewelry, I would not have listened to the person. I would have wondered where that person is coming from. But by the time God started dealing with me on it, I had no option but to do away with it.”
Alakija went on to recount that the turning point began when she started bleeding from her ear lobe while she was sleeping.
“That night I just suddenly found I was bleeding from my ear lobe. I did not sleep with earrings that night so I wondered what could have caused the bleeding. My ear lobe became sticky. When soap touched it while I was having my bath, it was hurting.”
She said a week before that experience, her younger sister had a dream that she saw that her ear lobe had cut. According to Alakija, the experience was not funny. She described herself as being free after she gave it up. “Now I am free.”
“In summary, let God speak to you about your life and your condition. Not one pastor telling you that makeup and trouser is a sin or bring 10m to pray for breakthrough.” This is one of the major issues among the Christians in Africa.” “Well, spiritual things are only understood by those it applies to individually.”
