Wale Adefarasin (of Guiding Light Assembly) and Paul Adefarasin (of House on the Rock), two prominent pastors who are blood brothers, have reportedly been at odds for years.
It’s a silent-but-loud irony that two men of God, born of the same well-to-do parents, could be so far apart.
According to City Scoop, it became clear a few months ago when Pastor Paul Adefarasin refused to attend his elder brother, Pastor Wale Adefarasin’s, 70th birthday party.
Even though they are both doing well in their personal lives and ministries, the crux of their schism has remained a closely guarded secret.
Thankfully, the death of their mother recently brought the two brothers together. Mrs. Hilda Joanne Adefarasin (nee Petgrave), their mother, died peacefully in her home on the evening of Sunday, February 5, 2023, at the age of 98 years.
On March 17, she was buried, with dignitaries from all walks of life joining the family to bid their mother farewell.
The Burial Service was held at the elder brother’s Guiding Light Assembly inside Parkview Estate, Ikoyi and his younger brother, his wife and other siblings were there.
Both pastors are sons of late Justice Joseph Adetunji Adefarasin, a lawyer, High Court judge and Chief Justice of Lagos (between 1974-1985).
He was married to their mum, Hilda Adefarasin and their union produced five children; Wale Adefarasin, Bola Adefarasin, Yinka Ogundipe, Michael Adeyemi Adefarasin and Paul Adefarasin.
