Photos of Traditional Wedding, Sharon Oyakhilome and Philip Frimpong

Very recently, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome gave his daughter’s hand in marriage traditionally and it was an event to behold. We have the beautiful pictures and the details from the event for your viewing pleasure.


Carissa Sharon, gospel singer and the first daughter of popular preacher, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome and her fiance, Philip Frimpong had their traditional wedding on the 4th of October, 2018.

As we all know already, Sharon Oyakhilome is the first of two daughters of the senior pastor and founder of Believers Loveworld International, aka Christ Embassy, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome and his former wife Anita Ebhodaghe. The 25 years old Sharon is tying the knot with her fiance, the Dutch-born, Ghanaian native businessman, Philip Frimpong.

The groom, Philip Frimpong was born in the Netherlands, and raised in the United Kingdom. He ultimately returned to his african roots and launched his company ONUA, along with his sister. ONUA is a fashion design company solely focused on African designs and prints. The kente wrap garment which he wore on the day was fresh off the label, and is no doubt a beautiful piece of fabric.




The traditional marriage was a beautiful spectacle to behold. It was filled with joy and excitement. It took place in Benin City, the Edo State capital which is the hometown of Sharon Oyakhilome. The beautiful bride, who also goes by the name CSO was all smiles as she wedded her groom. The beautiful ceremony was a fusion of both Ghanaian and Edo culture, and there was a lot of that, including food, dance and attire on display. The new couple appeared in both Edo and Ghanaian traditional attires and they looked quite ravishing in it.

The wedding decorations were top notch, with an elegant display of a mixture of purple, cream and gold colours.

Popular gospel singer, Sinach was also present at the occasion to dish out melodious tunes to the glory of God.

The traditional wedding was followed by the white wedding on the 6th of October and it had the popular Pastor Benny Hinn ministering in attendance. Both pastors have had illustrious careers in spiritual leadership and have spoken of mutual admirations for one another.

The traditional wedding was streamed from a live broadcast on Loveworld networks for many who weren’t able to attend the event.


Pastor Chris Oyakhilome was seen at the event all smiles with obvious pride and joy for his daughter. One notable absentee though, was his former wife and mother of Sharon, Anita Ebodaghe.

We wish the couple a happy married life.
