Pastor Ezekiel Odero was born on 13th August 1981 in Rusinga Island , Suba North Sub County, Homa Bay County in the former Nyanza Province . His dad was a Fisherman and his mum a small scale farmer. His grandfather Daniel Odero was a former Kenya Wildlife Service warden.
As a young boy, Pastor Ezekiel ventured into fishing as it was with boys his age in the village. This, later affected his result in KCPE. Pastor Ezekiel first sat his KCPE at Ngodhe Island Primary School (near Rusinga) in 1994 and scored 210 marks out of the total 700.
Funnily, Pastor Ezekiel was the best pupil at Ngodhe Primary School that year –
He was later taken by his maternal grandfather in Seme Sub County, Kisumu County where he was admitted to Standard Seven at Yeye Primary School that same year . He sat his KCPE for the second time in 1996 and doubled what he got at Ngodhe, scoring 398 out of the total 700.
Pastor Ezekiel was then admitted at Miwani High School in Muhoroni Sub county which was one of the best schools by then (1997)- Miwani is today a shadow of its former. Pastor Ezekiel sat his Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education examination in the year 2000 and scored a mean grade of C , a very strong grade by then.
In December 2001 Pastor Ezekiel travelled to Mombasa in search of greener pastures after completing his secondary school studies. He immediately became a member of the Maximum Miracle Centre Church of Pastor Pius Muiru. Ideally, Pastor Ezekiel is the spiritual son of the legendary Pastor Pius Muiru.
His talents of playing keyboard and being a choir teacher helped him a lot as he would be paid some stipend by the church and he survived from it. These crafts, he nurtured while serving in the Seventh-Day Adventist Church in Seme and as a member of CU at Miwani Boys High School.
He later became a praise and worship teacher-
Pastor Ezekiel later joined Mombasa Polytechnic (today the Technical University of Mombasa) in 2005 where he wanted to study diploma in Theology
