Prophet Shepherd Bushiri is not letting the coronavirus get in his way of preaching and the controversial pastor came up with another way to help his followers watch his sermons – for a price, that is.

The Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) leader launched an app called Major 1 Connect. The app has already been downloaded over 10,000 times on Google Play and TimesLIVE reported it costs subscribers R80 (N1,650.17) a month to use it.

According to the church on Facebook, during Bushiri’s last live sermon, 7000 Major 1 Connect users tuned in to watch him deliver the word of God.

A further six million worldwide allegedly used live broadcasts on Prophet Channel TV, YouTube and Facebook to watch the sermon.

ECG said it expects more than 25000 people to use the app to watch the next service.
