'Prophet Makandiwa's prophecy is a lie,' say Zhakata

MUSICIAN Leonard Zhakata has said he is not aware of the prophecy reportedly given by Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa during one of the United Families International Church (UFIC)'s service that the musician has a calling to be a minister of the gospel.




Although the 44-year-old Zora musician confirmed he was a member of UFIC, he said he did not foresee a situation where he would leave the stage for the pulpit because the love he had for his fans was greater.

Following the reported prophecy, Zhakata's fans became concerned that the Mugove  hitmaker would abandon music for the ministry.

"I am not even aware of the prophecy although I attend church at UFIC. I will not leave music because to me it is a calling on its own and I treasure my fans most. I will not just dump them."

The musician recently said he had rediscovered his winning formula that made him a household name on the local music scene in the 1990s, with several promoters that had lost confidence in him chasing after his signature.

"I had problems with the promoters who were worried about my inactivity and they thought I could not make it," he said.

This Friday, Zhakata will stage a show at Super Lable Night Club in Harare and has promised fireworks.

"It took us time to establish a strong relationship with promoters once again and it was difficult for us to break the ground," he said.

"We had limited venue options in the country, especially in Harare, and we ended up concentrating on Rusape, my home area."

Zhakata, whose music often carries strong messages, said he was considering releasing another album this year.

Zhakata's new-found fame comes on the back of the release of his last album Gotwe which has received a warm reception from his fans.
