Obey, who stated that late Archbishop Benson Idahosa contributed to his decision to go into ministration in an interview with Punch, however, recalled that the decision made him the target of public hostility and odium, particularly among his fans.

He said, “They did not like it at all. I lost many of them but I regained them later. Some of them were not even greeting me but I was not bothered because I am a very serious minded person. Once I want to do something, I do it wholeheartedly. For 17 years, I was in the ministry and I never looked back. I had trying times during those 17 years but I never let people know what I was passing through.”

Recalling other emotional tales to the paper during the period, ” I had a factory that produced cassettes and it was doing very good but I did not have the time to supervise it. I could not combine it with my work as a musician and an evangelist. I put my daughter and relatives in charge of the factory but we later lost it because it owed the bank. Even after losing the factory, because of my name, I still continued to pay debts so I had to sell three of my houses. But with all that happened, I still thanked God. I bought shares but it went bad and I lost a lot of money in the process. Nobody came to my rescue but God did something.”
