PHD Ministries leader Prophet Walter Magaya suffered a wardrobe malfunction early this week when he solemnised Sharon Macheso and Kudakwashe Munetsi while donning a hoodie and a pair slippers.
Marriage officers usually conduct such services while resplended in suits to show the importance of marriage unions they will be presiding over.
Magaya’s dressing at the wedding appeared as though he had just been woken from sleep without prior arrangement.
He resembled a loafer dressed in a grey hoodie, a pair of tan “chinos” as well as white slippers,.
His dressing fell short of expectactions of the regalia associated with other celebrity preachers like Emmanuel Makandiwa, Uebert Angel and Passion.
When he walked on stage to bless the couple, the guests were shocked by his dressing at the red carpet affair where the dress code was strictly black and red matching the classy decoration courtesy of Daisy Mtukudzi the hostess.
“Ko nhai ndochii ichocho (what’s that?), “ one guest said, adding that, “Is he not aware that there is a dress code?”
Another guest from the PHD Ministris quipped: “Asi vachangomuka (He appears as if he has just woken up).”
“He made a mockery out of Sharon’s wedding,” another guest said.
More than his gift of US$2000 to the newlyweds, and save for his name, Prophet Magaya was not in sync with the formal occassion, and could have easily been mistaken for a gatecrasher.
Of course, during his formative years Prophet Magaya would dress in bright coloured suits including red something the fashion police would not pass.
Although he is known for portraying a modest lifestyle which includes driving a one litre engine car, the prophet was the odd one out as guests including former top model and Miss Zimbabwe Trust chairperson, Marry Chiwenga, who were all dressed to the nines.
Prophet Magaya was invited at the wedding since Nyadzisai Macheso, the wife of sungura ace Alick is a member of the PHD Ministries that fellowships at Zindoga Shopping Centre.
Nyadzisai was full of praises for Prophet Magaya saying since joining the church her life as well as that of her family had changed for the better.
“From the time I joined Prophetic Healing and Deliverance Ministries things are going on well and whether people talk negative things about him but as for me and my family he is the man who brought light to us and I am now experiencing the hand of God.
“I am now at PHD with the children although Baba Macheso is still to join us. But he (Macheso) accepts the prophet’s blessings in his activities.”
The Herald Entertainment understands that Nyadzisai received a prophecy from Prophet Magaya concerning her husband and fortunately with prayers from the man of God, that prophecy changed everything.
Nyadzisai is one of the many popular faces including Nicolas “Madzibaba” Zakaria, Henrietta Rushwaya, and Allan Chimbetu who now fellowship at Prophet Magaya’s PHD Ministries.
