Spirit Embassy church founder and leader Prophet Uebert Angel celebrated his 34th birthday at a glitzy all-white mega-party at the City Sports Centre in Harare last Friday where one of his shirts was auctioned for a whopping US$10 000.
Other items such as a pair of his socks went for US$1 500; a tie US$700; another shirt US$4 000 and an air rifle US$5 500. A portrait of him, United Family International Church leader Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa and their spiritual father Prophet Victor Kusi Boateng of Ghana, also went under the hammer at US$7 500.
“I know my brother and his taste for style and classy things, but tonight, some of you will go home as proud owners of some of that stuff.
The party was lit by five-star performances by a line-up of musicians that included Pastor Charles and Amai Olivia Charamba, Mahendere Brothers, Oliver “Tuku” Mtukudzi and South African gospel icon Sipho Makabane.
It was, however, local superstar Mtukudzi who stole the show, belting out his gospel-inclined tracks such as “Hear me Lord”.
“Unfortunately, as Africans, we cannot appreciate our own heroes, but it is time we started appreciating our own,” he said.
