ZimPraise leader exposed for duping popular Prophet faces UK and US ban. According to the local tabloid, H-Metro, Passion Java Ministries is plotting to have Madziyire barred from visiting the United States and the United Kingdom, where he conducts music shows. This follows reports that Madziyire breached a contract with Passion Java. Madziyire was reportedly given US$12 000 to organise prophet Passion’s birthday celebrations but failed to deliver everything as they agreed on.
Nasty revelations have emerged that leading choral group ZimPraise’s founder, Joseph Madziyire, has allegedly been exploiting his band members and not paying them adequately. Madziyire’s skeletons have come tumbling following allegations that he duped controversial prophet, Passion Java, who has since launched a scathing attack on the gospel choir founder.
In an interview with the publication, Prophet Passion’s personal assistant Lashan Muchuchu confirmed that the man of the cloth was duped by the choral group’s leader. He also revealed nasty details that they have received several calls from former Zimpraise Choir members accusing Madziyire of not paying them.
He also added that efforts to settle the dispute amicably had hit a brick a wall and that they have now resolved to take extreme measures to deal with him.
We are going to approach different foreign embassies mainly the US and the UK, telling them the kind of person he is. He conducts musical shows there so we want him barred from visiting those countries because we have proof that he is a criminal. He stole from us and exploited his band members as cheap labour in those countries. The reason why he has to be banned from going to foreign lands is because he is exploiting his band members.
We are receiving a lot of complaints from some of his former band members who are telling us that he travelled with them to these countries many times, but he didn’t pay them.
Our leader prophet Passion is a loving man, but we are seeing that people are now taking advantage of him and Joseph is one of them. Our prophet has done so much for Joseph, he gave him money for his shows and even bought clothes for him before.
Narrating how they were duped by Madziyire, Muchuchu said;
As you know last month we were celebrating the prophet’s birthday and we were doing a lot of celebrations. One of the celebrations was a church service at 7 Arts and we assigned Madziyire to organise that event. We gave him a total of US$12 000, but he didn’t deliver everything that we had agreed upon.
There was poor lighting system, the stage didn’t even have a carpet and the bulk of the money was supposed to be used on billboards We had agreed that he would put billboards around Harare, but there was no single billboard of the prophet. We also later found out that he lied to us that he had paid 7 Arts US$3 800 only to find out that he paid US$800.
