Omar Sheriff turns preacher

If anyone finds popular actor Omar Sheriff Captan preaching in a church, the one should not be too surprised  because the handsome actor is now a born-again and God is using him to bless other people. Omar, looking dapper as always, told Showbiz last Friday that he felt the special call of God six years ago but did not pay much attention to it until he miraculously prayed to heal his little sister who was suffering from convulsion.

Thereafter, he said, God has led him to do many wonderful things.  “It is not everything I can say but I thank God for making me see the light”.

Omar now wants to be called Evangelist Omar Sherriff Captan. “I have so far preached at a few churches including Ofori Amponsah’s church as well as the  International Central Gospel Church and the responses have been fantastic. I am mostly at Achimota forest doing some wonderful work of God and I believe God will take me far” Omar said.

Asked what he is currently doing, Omar Sheriff who has not been active in  movies since Tinsel, said he wants to do the work of God  full time with his new-found talent.

Known  for movies such as Outrage, Dark Sands, My Sweetie and television series Tentacles , Broadway, and Tinsel, Omar Sherriff said he doesn’t want anything to stand in his way now that he has seen God and serving Him whole heartedly

“I will not allow anything to come between God and I because I have gone through a lot. I thank God for bringing me this far and I advise anyone who hasn’t given him or herself to God to do so now because God is a sweet father” Omar pointed out.

Omar Sheriff who is a divorcee but taking things cool has just featured in a new movie Cheaters  which features actors Jackie Appiah, Adjetey Anang and others and will be premiered at the Silverbird May 24.

Talking about the movie, Omar said the movie throws more light on the assumption that marriage is the only war in which one sleeps with the enemy. “If the couple is inseparable, it usually takes five people to separate it and Cheaters reflects just that. In this film, love is portrayed as a mysterious adventure that takes one through many twists and turns.

Also in the African movie world, reports from Nollywood say popular actor Zack Orji has totally given his life to Christ. He has now been made a Pastor and for some time now he has been winning souls for Christ.

According to the reports, Zack had been on the corridors of evangelism in the past two years. He was proclaimed an evangelist by the President of Christian Central Chapel International (CCCI) Bishop Emma Isong.

The actor was said to have moved from one church to the other with the ministry, working hard and praying to get further official pastoral ordination. He had been preaching at engagements in various churches such as Shepherd House Assembly in Makurdi, Lafia, Abuja and the Diaspora.

The actor’s dreams of becoming a full minister of God became a reality a few weeks ago when he was officially ordained a pastor by Bishop Lawrence Osagie.

It was also gathered that Zack Orji will continue with his inspirational style of preaching which will open him to frequent travelling all over the world to preach the word of God.
