Mamah Dedeh: Indonesia’s Most Popular Female Preacher

Dedeh Rosidah, also known as Mamah Dedeh to her followers, is one of Indonesia’s most popular preachers. The fact that she is a middle-aged woman makes it all the more unique in this male-dominated arena. Mamah Dedeh delivers very frank and funny advice on otherwise taboo subjects such as “How to Deal with a Flirtatious Husband” and “Watch out for Homewreckers.” Her show is vastly popular with women, and many of them flock to see her shows live, with some women waiting years.

VICE Indonesia’s Syarafina Vidyadhana tags along with some ibu-ibu to a taping to see what the buzz is all about.
