Biography: Matthew Ashimolowo was born to Muslim parents in 1952 in present-day Kaduna State. Around 1974, he experienced a call to Christianity and enrolled in a Bible school in Lagos. He became an assistant pastor in the Foursquare Gospel Church, but in 1992 he moved to London and founded his own church, KICC. KICC grew rapidly through the 1990s, and began broadcasting its services on cable television in 1995. His wife Yemisi is also a pastor at KICC. (Sources: 1; 2; 3)
