  • This is surely a hoax?

    Although given what passes for Christianity in parts of Africa.... perhaps not.

    Pastor cooking unfaithful man to change him stuns netizens
    A Zambian preacher has left people widely confused and in stitches after he cooked a unfaithful husband who had been presented to him in a bid to make him faithful again.

    The man of God instead of organizing counseling for the cheater and his wife or trying any other means decided stewing the middle-aged man was the way to go.

    I don't know how tomatoes and onions are supposed to make a difference but go off sir.

    Photos of the pastor performing the rendition of a Master Chef class edition in front of his congregation went viral with many highlighting African's version of Christianity was really warped and needed redemption.

    The comedy series goes on. The pastor tried seeking divine intervention and God himself instructed him to cook the unfaithful man in a pot to help him amend his ways.

    In the footage making rounds on social media, the man could be seen sitting on a huge pot with his head bent down. A lady could be seen pouring in chopped onions, tomatoes, and peppers on him as other congregants looked on.

    When it sounds too nutty to be true, it usually is. (nutty, not true )

    The “Pastor or Prophet” playing spiritual cleanser of infidelity in the photos is not a Christian spiritual leader, going by the religious and meanings of who a pastor and a prophet are and what they do.

    Our research points to the alleged prophet as Mike Eze-Nwalie Nwogu a Nigerian socialite, entrepreneur and prominent stunt man in Nigeria commonly known by his stage name Pretty Mike.

    The picture in question was taken from Warri Pikin’s wedding or vows renewal where Mike made a grand entrance with women carrying spices and vegetables, a cooking pot, a spoon and a man he later “cooked” without fire, with the idea of making a soup dish for the newly weds, in June 2023.

    He is neither Zambian nor South African as the different posts purport, and better yet, he is not a pastor or prophet and the his acts are not scientifically proven to be a behaviourial change strategies to stop any one from being unfaithful.
    The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

      Pretty Mike is a popular Nigerian socialite and entrepreneur who grew up in Houston, Texas. He is one of Nigeria’s many controversial public figures, bringing him the name “King of Stunts.”

            Flipped the script though.

              And, I think that was the intent.

                Maybe if there had actually been fire or heat under the pot!

                    My significant other came up with the phrase Pastor and sauce!

                      As a bowl of soup, he found it difficult to cheat on his wife. Makes sense.

                        How do we know there was no heat? A gentle simmer perhaps to keep him toasty!

                          Pretty Mike is a stuntman - the "cooking somebody in a pot" is a throwback to that imagery.
