“I started my norms and the audience were thrilled to have my kind of person, only for me to start seeing the Pastor approaching me one after the other to follow their printed program of which the couple had instructed me to do away with.
“The whole thing when they said they would have to sing praise and worship at the reception, which was so boring and the countenance on people’s faces told it all.
“However, the chairman of the day who is also a pastor in the church asked for the microphone only for him to say that the program has been hijacked outside Deeper Life way, hence a new Mc is needed and I should stop, so they invited a member who came in and the crowd went in uproar but the pastor stated nothing can be done outside his instruction.”
He also revealed that the development angered the couples, but he had to pacify them to remain calm.
“The groom felt so bad and wanted to take the microphone to vent his anger. I had to beg and called three other adults from his an his wife’s family to calm him.
