In August, Ashimolowo and his wife clocked 42 years in marriage. They are blessed with children and grandchildren.

Mrs Ashimolowo is a resident pastor of KICC Walthamstow, London and head of KICC Winning Women Ministry.

In a 2014 interview with City People, she said she never envisaged marrying a pastor especially as she was the daughter of a pastor.

“Marrying a pastor was the last thing on my mind. Because my dad is a pastor and as a pastor’s daughter, I dreaded marrying a pastor. My dad has two brothers who are pastors also but of different denominations. I never really wanted to marry a pastor but God knows the plans He has for our lives,” she said.
