At the time of the wedding, the couple were so ecstatic to be married and some sources claimed that they married early due to pressure from the church.
Prophet Edd Branson said marriage was important to God since it represents Christ being the groom and his church being the bride and after cleansing it with his blood he will present it to his father our God.
“I want to believe that a lot of people get so obsessed with the wedding to be held in South Africa and the expense of the wedding that they miss out on what the real purpose is. It’s not about a production number, it’s about a meaningful moment between two people that’s witnessed by people they really know and actually care about,” said Prophet Edd.

“The only reason why people assumed that they were together was because they wanted their son to grow up seeing both his parents until he reaches a certain age where they would then be able to raise him apart,” the source told Nehanda Radio.
“Two weeks ago the couple seemingly announced during a live broadcast together that they were making their separation official with Branson taking time away from church to pray and they even prayed together in a show which just cements the idea that this was mutual,” the source added.
Efforts to get in touch with Branson’s PA (called kunaka) yielded nothing.
