Popular Kumasi-based prophet, Bishop Daniel Obinim was actually a footballer before he became a man of God.
Former Asante Kotoko midfielder Stephen Oduro has revealed that the controversial man of God whom he was in the same house with during their childhood days was a good player.
“I was born at Akwatia Line, the same house as Bishop Daniel Obinim who is a man of God today. He was our next-door neighbour and other guys but he (Obinim) was really a good footballer but I don’t know why he quit football but he was so good at playing,” he made this revelation in an interview with Kumasi Nyame monitored by Myfabulousonline.com.
“Obinim was a better player than I was so anytime we play I wanted to be part of his team else I won’t play because if I go the opposite side they will score us”
The prophet who is widely known for his outrageous claims and mind-boggling miracles apparently exhibited the same traits back in the days as a striker.
We don’t know why this has survived being a secret till now, knowing how the self-acclaimed man of God likes to hype himself.
