Controversial South Africa based Prophet, Shepherd Bushiri launches his own app, ‘Major 1 Connect app’.
This means that his followers can now watch him online; for a price though.
The prophet charges subscribers R80 (N1,650.17) a month to have access to the mobile application.
The prophet is so not letting the coronavirus lockdown get in between his preaching, and maybe, his business too.
In any case, his goal is being achieved as the app has already been downloaded over 10,000 times making over R800,000 (N16,483,075.86) and the figure keeps going up.
The Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) leader launched an app called Major 1 Connect.
According to the church on Facebook, during Bushiri’s recent live sermon, 7000 users of the app tuned in to watch him deliver his message.
Also, six million worldwide allegedly used live broadcasts on Prophet Channel TV, YouTube and Facebook to watch the sermon.
ECG said it expects more than 25000 people to use the app to watch the next service.
The prophet who had earlier asked his members to pay their offering and tithes online.
That has caused a backlash; as people condemned the prophet for requesting that amid the lockdown.
