Mike Bamiloye, the founder of Mount Zion Faith Ministries International, says Gloria, his wife, still addresses him as “bro Mike” despite nearly 35 years of marriage.


In an Instagram post on Wednesday, Bamiloye said his wife has been calling him “Bro Mike” since their time in campus fellowship.

He said it didn’t stop after they got married, adding that their attempts to adopt endearing names were unsuccessful.

He added that he would try to break the pattern before their 40th wedding anniversary.


“Before we married, she has been calli hing me what the brethren in the Campus Christian Fellowship used to call me: “Bro Mike”,” he wrote.

“When we got Married, she didn’t stop calling me Bro Mike! We both tried to begin to call: sweetie! honey! baby!, sweetheart! MD! “ It didn’t work out!

“One day, before my Mum (Big Sister) who had been fighting this, My wife wanted to prove that we had tried our best to adjust. I was upstairs and she called me in the presence of my mum: “honey!” sweetie!! sweetheart!!”


“She called and called and I was hearing her voice but it never registered. Then she just called “Bro Mike!” And I responded very loudly. And my Mum laughed!

“Now, our marriage has been 35 years and all our children are married with children and she has not stopped calling: “Bro Mike!” And I have not stopped responding!

“But I am going to break this jinx one day before our 40th wedding anniversary! I promise you all, I will break the jinx before the grandchildren begin to call me: “Braaa- Hightee!”

Mike and Gloria got married on October 8, 1988.


They have three children together.
