Gospel star Solly Moholo has reemerged after a short rest from music with the arrival of a new song that denounces controversial self-proclaimed prophet, Shepherd Bushiri.
The song, which was announced along with a video advising the public on how to deal with the coronavirus epidemic, is called Ke moSione 9-9.
Two years ago, Moholo, who picked up popularity through his Zion Christian Church-adjusted mokhukhu gospel music, declared that he was leaving the Zion Christian Church (ZCC) for Bushiri’s Enlightened Christian Center.
“In him, I saw how big God is. He is an amazing angel of God. He will help me spiritually and give me support to deal with my challenges,” Moholo told Sowetan in a past interview.
“Nobody is like Bushiri on this Earth. God has chosen him, I saw power in him and all of us want to be close to the chosen ones,” he added.
Throughout the years, apparently he’s been inconsistent with senior leaders of the ZCC church for different reasons, for example, his refusal to quit wearing the congregation’s uniform in front of an audience and to quit playing out the congregation’s trademark mokhukhu move.
Although Moholo officially denounced Bushiri a year ago, he accepted the opportunity, once again, to promote the single amid the coronavirus panic.
The song is also addressed to ZCC church leader Bishop Barnabas Lekganyane whose forgiveness Moholo asked for.
“Phuthego lengtshwarele, Bushiri ong ropile. Ke moSione 99,” [Can the church forgive me, Bushiri has robbed me. I’m a Zion Christian Church member through and through] sings Moholo.
Moholo immediately started slanting on social media on Friday morning after various social media users listened to the song and marvelled at its lyrics.
The song is reportedly available on all streaming platforms.
