Charlyn Oyakhilome (born 14 May 1995; Age: 28) is the youngest of the 2 daughters of Pastor Chris Oyakhilome and his estranged wife, Anita Oyakhilome. Her parents rose to stardom for being the founders of the Christ Embassy Church.
On her own and away from the successes and fame of her parents, the UK-based Charlyn is thriving in her own right. She is an entrepreneur, aesthetician, and director at Body Crush London Ltd – a company that deals with hairdressing and beauty and health services.
Charlyn Oyakhilome is 28 Years Old
Charlyn Oyakhilome was born on 14 May 1995, making her 28 years old. She is the second daughter of Pastors Chris and Anita Oyakhilome and is a native of Edo State, in the south-south region of Nigeria.
Charlyn was raised alongside her older sister, Carissa Sharon Oyakhilome-Frimpong (CSO). The older sister of Charlyn is currently married to Philip Frimpong, a Ghanaian businessman born in the Netherlands and a co-founder of ONUA, an African Wax print.
The sisters led most of their early lives away from the media’s attention despite their parents’ fame. Regardless of this, they grew up around the church and may have shuffled between Nigeria and the UK.
At the time she was 21 in 2016, her parents had been married for more than 2 decades before they decided to call it quits. According to Anita, the marriage ended because of adultery and unreasonable behavior on the part of Pst. Chris.
She Hails From a Lineage of Pastors
Charlyn hails from a family of Christian ministers. While her father may be the most famous, her mother is also a renowned pastor. In addition to her parents, her paternal grandparents – Elder Tim E. Oyakhilome (grandfather) and Angelina (grandmother) were pioneers and key influencers to the Assemblies of God Church in Benin City, Edo State.
Her grandfather was also the dean of studies at Loveworld Ministerial College (LMC) before his death in 2018. On the other hand, her grandmother was a deaconess with the Christian fold.
Other extended family members of Charlyn who are in Church ministry are Rev. Ken Oyakhilome, a pastor of Christ Embassy, Texas. Another person is Pastor Linda Okocha, who is a zonal and regional pastor in Portharcourt, Rivers State, in the south-south region of Nigeria.
Her aunt, Evang. Katty Worghirnen is a minister and director at LoveWorld’s music and arts ministry. In addition, popular gospel singer Daysman Oyakhilome is Charlyn’s cousin and was key to many youth activities in Christ Embassy before he was allegedly sacked. He has also been called out for alleged fraud, among other crimes that he denied.
Charlyn Oyakhilome Suffered From Focal Hyperhidrosis
The younger Oyakhilome discovered that she had focal hyperhidrosis when she was 12. This condition made her sweat excessively in her armpit.
In 2019, at the age of 24, she got underarms botox worth 1,495 pounds. The procedure took just a day, and she received injections that deactivated her sweat glands. The resultant effect would require about three weeks of non-vigorous work and 6 months of numbness in the area.
What is Charlyn Oyakhilome’s Role in Christ Embassy?
Based on the available information on the internet, Charlyn does not seem to have any position in the Christ Embassy Church as her father and sister do. Yet, there is a certainty that she is a member of the church, and since she resides in London, she may be an ardent attendee of the church in the city.
Looking into her family and their positions in the church, her father, Pastor Chris, founded Christ Embassy, which is also known as LoveWorld Incorporated or Believer Loveworld, in 1987, about 8 years before Charlyn was born. He has since been the leader of the megachurch that is also found in a number of countries across the globe.
Her mother, Anita Schafer Oyakhilome, is a strong part of the church as a co-founder. She is also the author of many books like “Confession for Living,” “Unending Springs of Joy,” “Handbook for Successful Living,” etc. She served as a director at Christ Embassy international office and was in charge of overseeing the church in the United Kingdom.
Anita’s works and being part of the church were widely known until she divorced the famous pastor in 2016. Since then, she reportedly moved to London, and the knowledge of her pastoring the church has been shadowy.
In a similar vein, Charlyn’s sister, Carissa Sharon Oyakhilome-Frimpong, who was born in 1993, has been instrumental in her work for Christ Embassy. She is a singer who contributes to the singing ministry of the church and also releases her songs to the public. One of her most renowned songs is Holy Spirit which won her a Loveworld Music Ministry Award (LIMA) for Worship Song of the Year in 2018.
