Brighton 'Elliot' Moyo, who rose to fame after being exposed as the lead character in a 'resurrection' drama involving a self-proclaimed prophet, since died mysteriously. The timeline of events of what exactly happened is still not very clear and it's also not clear exactly where he died. It seems Elliot may have taken the truth to his grave.
Last week Monday, several Zimbabwean news publications reported that Elliot died and the news nearly broke the internet. The Citizen, Malawi24, iHarare.com, ZwNews.com, Bulawayo24 News and Zimbabwe News, to name only a few, claimed the infamous 'resurrected' man passed away last week in Mzansi and he was alleged buried over the weekend.

Moyo's grandmother, Emily, had no idea that he was notorious in South Africa after the resurrection video went viral:
“I wish someone could explain to me what was happening in South Africa because I hear he was once dead for three days and was resurrected by a pastor."
