Are Esther Arunga and Joseph Hellon pawns in a con scheme? Grace Kerongo

WITH the ongoing furore involving TV anchor Esther Arungaand saxophonist Joseph Hellon, people seem to miss out on the connecting link between the various scenarios: a publicity-hungry musician known to many as Quincy Timberlake, formerly known as Fizzle Dogg. He is right in the middle of most of the news hitting incidences that have been happening to both Hellon and Esther.

Quincy is a half cast of a Kenyan father and a South African mother. He has been a childhood friend with Hellon before they reunited in November 2009 via Facebook.

Since then, he has been living with Hellon at his (Hellon's) Runda residence.

Word Is learnt of the connection between the three through a series of emails and chats that are in our possession that shed light into the twisted dealings that led to the drama and scandal involving the three. The emails and chat sessions, which Hellon and Esther believe originated from a famous televangelist, had instructions for both of them said to be from God.

The first set of instructions demanded that Hellon promotes Quincy to a senior pastor at his Finger of God church. This led to disagreement with some members of the church and leaders, leading to a mass walkout from the church on February 11.

The second set of instructions, still from the reknown international 'miracle working' pastor, again directed at Hellon, asked that he record a single track with Quincy, which was done on February 10. The track, a Luo lingala song, was titled Ariembariemba\ (meaning 'I'm Expelling Them'). This is also the same day that Hellon's wife changed her name from Wagikuyu to Vineyard, which means "yard of sweet protection that no evil sees". On the same day as well, during a chat session with the televangelist, Hellon asks for advice on what Esther should do.

He wrote: "All the serpents are gone now and as you can see, my daughter Esther is seated at my table looking beautiful and happy. Dad, I feel she shouldn't go back to KTN and I have told her already. Kindly advice."

The reply to this was: "Tell Esther to go nowhere. That girl loves Quincy no doubt about
it."

Instructions then started trickling in for the TV personality.

On February 12, Esther had a one-on-one chat with the spiritual leader whom they refer to as their dad. Here she tells the leader that she has disowned the family.

She then asks if God wills it for Quincy to be her husband. And the answer she gets? "Only Apostle Hellon got the keys to his (Quincy) command. HE listens to nobody else, as for now Apostle Hellon should not let him know he is gonna be your husband."

With this you get the feeling that something is not right. As of now, there are no services at the Finger Of God Church because the faithful are on a 100-day fast beginning February 11, because the televangelist based in the US ordered it.

We are yet to get confirmation from the US if indeed the said televangelist is part of this scandal. We will definitely keep you posted about the unfolding drama. Or is it the biggest con?

The dad is Benny Hinn. Y can't u just say it n u know? This story is absurd. Esther of all people. We need to pray that these cults do not get to our sisters, mothers, friends.

Let us not be so fast to judge esther. We need to know the truth and further more understand why she has taken such a drastic yet foolish action. Esther if you can read this,please get away from that so called "church" since it is no church. The Lord God in heaven who created you and has seen u this far will provide for whatever it is you need in life - remember He can never give us a burden too heavy to bear. As for Hellon, we dont know why you came to this country (if urnt kenyan) if your purpose is to mislead, kindly flee or stop this cult. It will lead you nowhere, you have started a path to your disappearance. Esther, do u miss a father fig so much you had to go and call satan your dad? I and 99% kenyans are disappointed. We envied you, u were a role model to many upcoming young gals and boys....i dont know whether that still stands. Im praying that you quit that cult and be yourself b4 its too late. Your parents and fiance love you, dont hurt them....

It is true that our churches have been used by US Based spiritual leaders to mislead God's children. I have been a victim of that too. My former pastor went to the US and came back with doctrines such as women should not preach at all or even stand at the pulpit. He used one of my lady friends to lie to me that my husband was unfaithful so I could walk out on him and go back to his church but I later found out it was just a lie. He has been expelling members from his church since he came back. If only Esther was wise she could have overcome all this nonsense. That Quincy guy will never make her happy, how could she break her engagement to Wilson for a man she hardly knows? She is in for a very big surprise, just wait and see!

We all have direct access to God,i mean we wer made of his image hence,the term,'we are equal' we shouldnt depend on flesh and blood to make decisions for us...as much as human beings can get convincing,lets not put our heart&soul in man,let this be an example to us.

Can somebody please post a photo of this quincy dude lest he is hunting for a new target. People need to be forewarned!!!

It is a pity that Esther had to go through all these!!! She is still a child of God and God will never leave her nor forsake her. She just looked for God in all the wrong places. I just hope and pray that she finds herself again

We are judged by our words. It is better not to say anything if you do not know the real story, all this is hearsay. Just pray for the will of God to be done.

there are three sides to every story,esther and hellon's side,media and parent's side and the truth.....the truth is Jesus who is saying that without him you will perish...

Esther, The Lord loves you very much. You ask for his will directly and do not let anyone do it on your behalf. The truth may not be known for now, since everything is a mix. But the Lord delivers all and can not leave u even for a second just make an effort to jump out as we also pray for you. All the best

This sux, she has done nuthing major to earn her such vitriol from complete strangers who have far worse skeleton in their skeletons that hers...y'all a bunch of losers for taking about her like that...so wat if she didnt do law and spoke llike she did in the press conference? is it any of your business? and aint she human? why are you all driving her on some pressure to conform..and if she choooses some church over others? Why is everyone playing God and getting condescending on her?why you all bunch of losers debate over it with such enthusiasm? GET A LIFE ALL OF YOU!!!!

Do you guys know how many Kenyans are being blindfolded to such cults? It is the joy of the devil to mislead people, especially prospered people like Esther. We need God to lead us through this journey of life. There's no normal being that will do such a thing. Esther is drunk with the spirit of this cult and will only take the hand of Jehovah God for her to sober up. Pray people, pray.

sir junior said...

please Esther and Hellon for heavens sake,u are a journalist n Hellon is a saxophonist u guys are creative please change the name of that cult ,FINGER OF GOD WAT KIND OF A NAME IS THAT FOR A "CHURCH/CULT" GET REAL U GUYS R not serious

She has been staying at runda for almost a year now... She was doing ok until last month coz she was working at KTN... She didn't look ok last night on TV. Honestly something is really wrong. CULT or NO CULT, I think we should pray and hope she doesn't ruin her life... and in the same breathe, people should stop talking sooo badly about her, she's human and prone to make mistakes. Give her space to breathe and back off!

this is scary its like the series we watch on tv happenning in real life. Esther needs prayers coz she has been blinded by the devil and what of that Quincy maybe he is the one using Benny Hinn's identity to get to her.

Too many Kenyans (and Americans) have been falling for all this US - based Evangelical bullshit for too long. First thing to do would be to ban the Family Channel in Kenya, which isn't really a family channel but a conduit for right-wing American Evangelical brainwashing. Sadly it's working very well over here. Finally, why are Kenyans still looking for answers from American crooks posing as clergymen when Kenyan's problems are all caused by the Kenyan crooks posing as statesmen here in Kenya?

see the k24 interview jeff koinange/esther arunga

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OT9SBV5n-mc&feature=player_embedded

looks to me like that church stepped in at a time that esther was having emotional issues and filled a gap. typical human nature. one is total belief and conviction while the other is manipulative.

Great publicity stunt I say, Hellon's next album will be a hit, and hopefully more people will question their religion and decide athiesm is probably the logical answer...

warning to the wise...the good book says many shall come in my name but not all are from me...Jesus warned us to watch out...any christian knows this is not of our God...and any christian knows of the warning, touch not my anointed..messing with real servants of God is dangerous...let them who have ears listen...at the same time, let us not judge her..do not judge or u too shall be judged..only God can judge..only God knows esther's circumstances and confusions...let us not condemn but pray for her..that the real God will speak to her..May GOD have mercy on us all..we are living in dangerous times
