In this interview, Pastor Dr Success Ibeakanma, The General Overseer of Royal Choice Ministries International Lagos speaks on their travails and journey these past 17 years and how he has been able to surmount the challenges through Jesus Christ. He also said that it is always important to give and that is what has kept them. He also received accolades from members and well-wishers of how God is using him to bless, sponsorship, scholarships, etc. One of his members, Bro Emma King gave a Testimony of how God used the pastor to heal him of chronic kidney disease. Among other Testimonies. Clemms Emmanuel captures this in this exclusive interview.


How has it been with you all these years in the Ministry and Vineyard of God?

It has been a wonderful journey and I must be frank with you here; it is not my making. It is just God. I will never take the credit that I have been very smart. I give the credit to God. It is God’s doing and I give him all the glory. We have been enjoying his mercies these years. God has been extremely faithful to us.

Looking at things retrospectively, can you recall any challenges?

Well, we do not see them as challenges because most times that the challenges come there are major promotion behind it. When others see challenges and cry, we see it and give God the praises. I have grown to see challenges as nothing but a step towards a major promotion. I have discovered that in any challenge that comes there is a testimony. I celebrate challenges and give God praises. I have discovered that challenges are ways to testimonies.

While preaching, you focused on giving. I have discovered that you have a humanitarian attribute. What informed it?

I can’t do without giving. You can never say that you worship or love God and you do not give. It doesn’t work that way. God is love and giving is practically manifestation of God in practical form. God so love the world that He grace. I enjoy giving, it is part of my life and it gives me joy. Even if I do not have to give, I will always give cos I know that I am rich. My mentor is David Oyedepo and that man is my mentor and I have tapped graces from him. You must be a giver to grow t the next level. You must be a giver

For 17 years will you say God has been great?

Yes, God has been great. Though, people will call you different names, but do not mind them and do not key into that name. you must look unto God. It was said that no church prospers in Alapere but here we are after 17 years. We have given a lot from cars to others. When I married, we do not have cars yet my Wife stood by me today we have been able to buy over 150 cars and given to people to start up businesses, and we must know it is all by God not by my power.



Managing human being is one difficult thing. How have you been able to cope these seventeen years?

As a pastor or any evangelist ability to manage people is critical and crucial and we thank God for this. We know managing human beings is difficult. You must know that all manner of people will come around. Just like Joseph in the bible, he had those that came to either destroy or motivate him. His brothers were the destroyers and those that bought him are the motivators. We must know that human investment is the best thing one can make. Do not be dissuaded by the attitude of people just keep investing in them and do not see them as problem.

What are the benefits of Giving?

Giving is the fastest way of getting to God. Now as a giver you must know that bible encourages us to always do that. It unlocks the favor of God and make God to be pleased with you. There are levels to this, they that sow in tears will reap in joy. Sacrifice and giving is the greatest and fastest way of receiving from God. You also give to pastor. Give to the needy and also give to the society, be a giver from church to society. You have to touch lives and community

What message can be deduced from this anniversary and you are giving?

The message is basically be “focused” people will critic and talk all manner of ills towards you but you must be focused as a individual and this is what will take you to the next place. Jesus is the solution for anything and you must be focused. That has been what took us these past 17 years.



“You must know that all manner of people will come around. Just like Joseph in the bible, he had those that came to either destroy or motivate him. His brothers were the destroyers and those that bought him are the motivators. We must know that human investment is the best thing one can make.”
