‘Miracle money’ lures Malawi artists into gospel, working with Prophet Bushiri- Report

A number of  musicians from Malawi are leaving secular music to become gospel artists and working with popular Malawian born prophet Shepherd Bushiri of the Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) attracted by ‘Miracle money’.

According to published reports, some of the some of the artists that are working with the prophet include Thoko Phiri, Onesimus and Gwamba.

And last week during the birthday bash of the self-styled prophet, who is fondly called Major 1, other gospel artists who performed included Mlaka Maliro and Ethel Kamwendo Banda.

According to a report in The Nation newspaper on Friday, the teams do not only work with the prophet, but they are also known to be his fiercest defenders on issues that attract public criticism, especially on the social platforms such as Facebook.

“For example, when the popular tag of ‘miracle money’ resurfaced, people took it the social media to accuse the Prophet of satanic powers. But the likes of Onesimus went full throttle to defend Bushiri. To cap it all, Onesimus has lately released a chat bursting song titled’ Miracle Money’, which praises Bushiri’s power in churning out miracle money,” reported the daily.

Prophet Bushiri is also on record to have worked with other well-known gospel artists such as Peter Sambo and Patience Namadingo. Artists such as Thocco Katimba and drummer Amos Mlolowah are also said to be ardent supporters of the prophet.

Bushiri’s spokesperson Kelvin Sulungwe told the paper that the Major 1 is also into promotion of youth through job creation and nurturing talent.

“On the other hand, he recognises the fact that the church has a role to create employment for young people to help government fighting the soaring unemployment rates,” said Sulungwe.

Among other things, the Bushiri brand is believed to have been catapulted to fame by prophecies and miracles that are believed to come to pass among his followers.

Victor, you wrote your thoughts all about the prophet. I am only asking you to attend to the prophet’s meetings and understand him well. You can even watch the prophet channel on your dstv or go to “you tube” pages of him before critics. I hope you have never come across a man like him in life and ask yourself, why now? He is feeding the needy from southern region to northern region of Malawi. He is praying for the sick and people get healed instantly, he is teaching people good news not only in your country but the whole… Read more »

Miracle Money? ReallY? You mean we should we be sitting idle waiting for miracle money–money to come in our pockets just like that? Why then does the Bible say that he who does not work should not eat? What I know and believe is believers operate in financial prosperity via the Law of Seed Time and Harvest. God says in Genesis 8:22 that “While the earth remaineth, seed time and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.” This entails that if you are to prosper financially you must be willing and… Read more »

Jesus is a brand that has been sold to many people since they were in nappies, so anything no matter how trashy the music can be as long as it has jesus in it, you are going to sell to people infected with the religion virus of the mind. Marketing people know this very well and they know it will work.
