He founded Love World as a university student. The key part of Oyakhilome’s praying style is each of his followers should contribute some of his earnings to the church, which he call "Sowing the seed". If people don’t have such money, they are encouraged to donate their valuable possessions in stead, such as jewelry, watches, mobile phones, vehicles and so on! To get more "seeds", the church approached hundreds of young businesses and solicited them to join his adepts. "Seed sowing" alone gets Pastor Oyakhilome millions of naira monthly.
