Controversial gospel rapper, David Kalilani might have taken a bold step in attacking South Africa-based Malawi prophet Sheppard Bushiri in his latest release Osaopa, and his fans might be enjoying the tune but the song was leaked.
Word Alive Ministries Senior Pastor Zacc Kawalala has disclosed that the song which created an excitement on social media was shelved for future consideration until somebody leaked it to the public.
Osaopa (Bushiri Onyenga) is a song through which Kalilani dares the leader and founder of the Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) to clear himself in the midst of claims that his miracles are staged and that his powers are drawn from dark-forces through sexual intercourse.
But in an interview with Times television presenter Brian Banda, Kawalala revealed that the song was not officially released but leaked.
“The song is a part of a project which is on hold, I told David to keep the song so that we could change a few things. While we were still working around that, someone stole the song from the studio and leaked it to the public,” said Kawalala.
Kawalala’s sermon is featured in the song.
Kawalala said he advised Kalilani who works as youth pastor at Word Alive Ministries not to release the song after listening to it.
“My opinion was that the song as it was did not have to be aired”.
Meanwhile, Kawalala said was not afraid if Bushiri decides to sue them for defamation, arguing Bushiri’s actions would help people determine whether he was a true prophet of God.
“Jesus was called Beelzebub but didn’t drag anyone to court,” he said.
In am-not-scared energetic tone, the gospel rapper declares is not afraid to die for he renounced the love for fame and fortune long time back. He quickly pronounces war on false prophets.
Bushiri of late has worked hard to ward off rumours that he had a hand in the death of gospel songbird, Grace Chinga who died two weeks ago after a short illness. Rumors had it that Bushiri once tried to stream Chinga into underworld worship sect.
However, the prophet who has crossed-paths with government dismissed the rumours.
