Bulawayo based Prophet Blessing Chiza of Eagle life Assembly’s prophecy to Zimbabwea midfielder Marvelous Nakamba has been fulfilled.
Prophet Chiza prophesied to Nakamba eight years ago on 25 May.
In a video footage posted on Prophet Chiza’s official Facebook page (Dr Prophet B S Chiza), the Eagle Life Assembly leader is seen making the prophecy on 25 May, 2014 holding Nakamba’s football jersey before praying for the player while laying his hands on the then Nancy FC player.
“You are going to other big teams in Europe, from Nancy I see you rising, God is going to take you. If this does not happen, people will not know God. It has to happen according or against their imagination. Young man, you shall be very rich. He (Nakamba) now believes in the anointing of God,” Prophet Chiza is heard saying.
Over the weekend Nakamba celebrated his 50th appearance for English Premier League side Aston Villa in style after playing a starring role in their 2-1 win over Chelsea.
The match was played Sunday at Villa Park and was Villa’s final game of the season.
The hardworking defensive midfielder was rewarded for his solid performance when he started last midweek’s win over Tottenham by retaining his place in the starting line-up against the visitors.
And the Warriors star did not disappoint after putting in an assured 90 minutes performance in the midfield anchor role alongside Scotsman John McGinn.
After the match, Nakamba took to Twitter to express his delight after reaching a special milestone by making a half-century of appearances for Villa since joining the club in August 2019 from Belgian side Club Brugge.
“Very proud to make my 50th appearance for this great club. Excellent result today to end the season on a high. Thanks to our amazing fans for their continuous support,” Nakamba said.
