Adult dancer Beverly “Bev” Sibanda on Sunday intimated that Prophetic Healing and Deliverance founder Walter Magaya had begged her to return to his church.
Bev implied this in taunts directed at the preacher during her performance at Zindoga Shopping Centre where Magaya’s church service was in progress just across the road.Bev took the microphone and mocked her former spiritual father saying she would not return to his church, come what may.
She shouted: “Beverly . . . Magaya . . . dzoka kuchurch ndokutengera mota . . . Handidi . . . ”( Beverly come back to church I will buy you a car . . . I don’t want . . .).
She spent the better part of her performance mocking the man of cloth attracting some of the church members who were seen flocking from the church coming to where Bev was performing.
The attack came during a rendition of Soul Jah Love’s hit “Ndini Uya Uya” when she took the microphone and sang ‘‘Ndini uya uya aimbotamba sele kwaMagaya’’ to wild cheers from the crowd.

As if that was not enough, Bev then invited former Alick Macheso’s dancer Peter Kagomera on stage and asked him to do as his “father” (Macheso) does on stage while she did what her “father” Magaya does.
Kagomera did not disappoint as he proved that he can fit in his former master’s shoes when he mimicked Macheso’s popular sayings while Bev took the microphone and started putting her hand on fans’ heads mimicking Magaya’s prayer sessions shouting “Out Out”.
Bev’s antics attracted a number of people including some of Magaya’s church members who could be identified by their wrist bands and some were even holding their bibles.
Bev took the mic again and begged those who were coming from church to go back.
“Hiiiiii I can see people with wrist bands here. What are you doing here? This is a bar not a church. Go back to your father. I did not come to your church, I am here where I belong, the bar,” she shouted.
In spite of that parody Bev’s manager Hapaguti Mapimhidze denied that Bev was mocking the man of cloth, insisting that she was just saying the truth.
“She is not mocking him, when she left Magaya’s church, Magaya called, begging her to go back and promising to buy her a car and she refused. This is what she is saying, she is not insulting him, it’s just plain truth,” he said.
Magaya through the church’s spokesperson, Oscar Pambuka dismissed the claims saying they are no longer concentrating on Bev.
“I am shocked. This is the first time I am hearing this, from you. If she wants to come back it will be because of her own consent and she is welcome. As far as I know we are not concentrating on such issues,” Pambuka said.
Bev made a spectacular return to her trade barely months after ditching the striptease show in an alleged salvation that turned sour when she turned on her saviour for failing to ensure that her spiritual redemption came with adequate financial compensation.
Prophet Magaya is currently embattled in an adulterous saga in which he stands accused of an affair with a married woman.
