Today, April 13, as he clocks 60, gospel artist and founder of Mount Zion Drama Ministry, Mike Bamiloye has opened up on his experience as a famous actor, who wrote and acted in the film, Agbara Nla in the 90s, but was starving alongside his family.
In an Instagram post, the famous actor whose wife, Gloria, is also in the Drama ministry recalled how he got the inspiration to write and act the movie, “Agbara Nla.”
He wrote in a two part posts, the experience and challenge in his home even when they were famous.
“GUIDED BY THE
In the Year 1992,
While Working on the Script of AGBARA NLA.
I was in His presence,
Writing the Script as He poured it into my spirit.
Then I got to a point in the Story,
And I could not write further.
When I got to the scene of BOSE Coming across her Boss in her Office called Paulina.
At that point of the Script,
I got stucked.
I could not write any further.
Much as I tried to think of what next in the story,
My mind went blank.
I didn’t know what next to write.
Bose met her boss in the office, and she called herself Paulina.
Then what next?
I didn’t know.
For some hours ,
I didn’t know what to write.
As I prayed further with frustration, I heard His Voice plainly in my heart: “PROMISE ME ALL THE GLORY,
AND I WILL GIVE YOU THE STORY!” That was it.
He wanted me to make a Covenant with Him.
He wanted me to give Him all the Glory that would come from the Story of The Movie,
BECAUSE He wanted to reveal to me the Dark Secret of things in Secret Places.
He never wanted me to take the Glory of the Movie later.
He wanted me to have dinner over the Movie to Him ever before He completely gave me the full script.
So I knelt down right there,
And I promised Him.
I made a Covenant with Him. “LORD JESUS CHRIST,
I MAKE A COVENANT WITH YOU TODAY.
IF YOU GIVE ME ALL THE STORY, I WILL GIVE YOU ALL THE GLORY!” And that was it!
GBAM! The door of Secret place of Darkness secrets opened up to me!
I was writing the Script as if I was watching a Movie.
I was seeing the Secret of Paulina.
I saw that she was from the Marine Kingdom.
I saw that she had a Palace in the sea.
I saw how she took Bose into the Marine World through the Wardrobe in her bedroom.
I saw the Mark on her forehead, through which she was being controlled.
I saw further.
The dark secrets of Familiar Spirits, the Emeres, the Witches, the Wizards, the Occult World of Darkness in the Forest.
After the Script,
The Lord gathered us together in one village and we shot the Movie.
It was a Pastor who donated N5000 for us to deposit for the Camera and equipment to shoot the movie, AGBARA NLA.
The following year, (to continue)
The following year,
The Lord commanded me to
Go back and rewrite the entire Script in English, so that the message could spread across English speaking places.
In 1994, we were back on film location to shoot “THE ULTIMATE POWER”
Then, there was another crises.
When the movies began to trend on TV, in the whole of the Western Region states and it created an artificial Curfew,
and the English Version began to trend in the East and South and all over,
And about five Movie Marketers were selling the movies all over and refused to give us anything.
The movies were trending all over the place.
We could not even move freely in the market without being mobbed.
And the Marketers were distributing the movies everywhere,
We were all starving back at home.
All of us in our ministry,
With all our children, looking for what to eat.
The Marketers merely gave us a very little amount that could not sustain us.
Then, I became worried and angry.
I went to God and asked questions.
Why God? Why? Why? Why?
We were famous,
But we were starving.
After some time,
He spoke again! “I NEVER SAID I WOULD MAKE YOU RICH THROUGH THESE MOVIES “AGBARA-NLA”
BUT I WILL GIVE YOU “NAME!” Ah-aaa!
That was it!
Then He gave me a Verse of the Scripture: Proverbs 22:1 NKJV
“A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, Loving favor rather than silver and gold.” UP till today, wherever we travelled to all over,
We came across people whose lives have been touched and blessed through these movies.
His favours encompass us.
His Love has guided us all in Mount Zion.
His Covenant for us all in the Ministry have ordered our steps.
He is the same,
Yesterday, today and forever.
He said AS LONG AS WE SEEK HIM, HE WOULD MEET ALL OUR NEEDS.
And He has never failed since then.
