The subject of whether or not Christabell Adelaide Kingson, wife of former Black Stars goalkeeper Richard ‘Olele’ Kingson, is a witch has been laid to rest once and for all, with her husband denying the witch tag categorically. Mrs. Kingson has also denied being a witch.
“My wife is not a witch,” Olele wrote on his Facebook wall and even followed up to T.B. Joshua’s Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) on Sunday, September 9, to express pain and worry that some persons in Ghana were calling his dear wife a witch.
A week earlier, Mrs. Christabell Adelaide Kingson aka Maa Tee, during a deliverance service at SCOAN, had told the congregation and a global audience watching the live church service through satellite channel Emmanuel TV that she was a witch and that she had rendered her husband impotent and also jeopardized his football career.
A report from Ghanasoccer.net quoted Mrs. Kingson to have also denied being a witch: “I myself had no foreknowledge that I had been possessed. I can’t even remember what took place in the church after I fell down…I was only told what the spirit that manifested had said after I regained consciousness. I am not a witch as it has been rumoured….My husband knows how inspirational I have been to him throughout his goalkeeping career.”
Richard Kingson also explained that it was not uncommon for ‘false spirits’ to enter people during deliverance and for such spirits to manifest and say all manner of things through the person being delivered. He explained that persons who wanted to embarrass him spiritually manipulated the wife to say the type of things she said.
Speaking at TB Joshua’s church a week after the deliverance, Olele and his wife said all was well in their matrimonial home and that peace and love were completely restored to their marriage. He thanked the Man of God for delivering his wife.
Prophet T.B Joshua prophesied to Olele that he would return to the church within a month to give testimony of a restoration of his career. The Christian leader encouraged Olele not to be worried about what people say about his wife.
Reports reaching NEWS-ONE indicate that Richard Kingson says his dear wife, Christabell Adelaide Kingson saved the Black stars and Ghana from shame in 2006 when she advised against the taking of an amount of $300,000 as bribe when the Ghanaian side was to play the Czech Republic at the 2006 World Cup in Germany.
The goalie said he had loved his wife, and remained faithful and loyal to her since they got engaged in 1997.
The former Black stars goalie who revealed this as a ‘top secret under his pillow’ said that in 2006, whilst the national team prepared to face the Czech Republic, he was led by an unnamed Ghanaian to meet some people who were ready to offer him a cash of $300,000 if he would agree to allow just two goals to be scored by the Czechs during the game.
“When I informed my beautiful wife, she said that her love for me was not because of my money,” Kingson said.
Olele said that the winning bonus for the match was just $8,000 so he actually got tempted with the $300,000 offer but because of his wife, he went “everywhere in the goalpost playing like he has been injected in the blood of Jesus” during the game to ensure a win.
