Ifeanyi Ogbodo Alex, the movie producer, has responded to the controversy that ensued after Ekene Umenwa, his wife, knelt before Moses Bliss, the gospel singer, at their wedding reception.


Umenwa tied the knot with Alex on Saturday.

The actress was, however, under fire after a viral video captured her leaving Alex and kneeling before the gospel singer who was at the event to perform.

Speaking about the now-viral video, Deacon Famous, the MC of the event, had argued that Umenwa was not kneeling for Moses “but for the anointing he came with”.


“I was the one who invited Moses Bliss to the wedding to surprise because it was what she wanted. She wanted a worship session for her wedding,” he said.

“She was not kneeling down for Moses, she was kneeling down for the anointing that Moses came with.

“She was kneeling down for the song he got from the spirit. She was kneeling down to pray, to honor God, to honor the grace.


“The husband also went down on his own knees to pray. Ekene was not the only person on her knees, several other people also went on their knees to worship God.”

Responding in the comment section of the video, Alex said there is no need for an explanation.

Umenwa’s husband added that “he is not complaining” about the incident. He also thanked the MC for the explanation.


“Deacon you get time to explain… I am not complaining. God bless you real good my brother,” he wrote.
