Sungura music star Tongai Moyo says, as he battled with his health, he was receiving spiritual healing and counselling from Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa and Apostolic Faith Mission (AFM) pastors.

“Makandiwa has led me through prayers while here in Kwekwe, I receive a lot of spiritual guidance from AFM church pastors. This has been helpful as it eases my tensions and always gives me renewed hope for better health and prosperity.”

The sungura star, who has been battling with cancer, said medication alone costs him $2 000 every month. “I am managing through the live shows I perform and I am happy to say that there have been many friends who have chipped in to help me meet my medical bills. It is a difficult time but financially I am coping because I have audiences that support me through attending live shows,” said Moyo.

The musician employs 18 people in the band, Utakataka and they all depended heavily on him performing. The 18 include the dancers and those who provide the backing instrumentation.

The Apostolic Faith Mission in Zimbabwe Church (AFM) is one of the largest Pentecostal denominations in Zimbabwe. Until independence in 1980, it was part of the Apostolic Faith Mission of South Africa, which is South Africa’s largest Pentecostal church.
