The musician says as soon as his church, Messiah Apostolic Prophetically Inspired People’s Institution (Mapipi), is granted space and facilities by Mutare city council he will begin working miracles.
In an interview with Standard- Life&Style, Chipanga said Makandiwa is preparing people for heaven but he is going to establish that kingdom in Zimbabwe.
“I will be greater than Makandiwa who has a large following now because he is preparing people for the heavenly kingdom. Mapipi will establish the kingdom of God here on earth,” said Chipanga.
Asked how he would mix clergy work and music, Chipanga said he is not a musician but a preacher and will continue to preach even in bars and nightclubs through music.
“I will continue to give the word to those who are in the dark, especially in beer halls because those are the people who need to be saved,” he said.
Chipanga narrated his calling, which he said came on September 13 1977 in Penhalonga at his friend’s house.
“I felt my body burning and I thought I was about to die. A cup of water came to my rescue and that is when I was told to go and preach,” said Chipanga
Chipanga said he formed a church to address the social injustice, especially the judicial service that he said is biased.
The church was launched in October at his house in Mutare.
