- Pretoria based prophet, Shepherd Bushiri, made history after he filled up the FNB stadium recently
- His show had more than 100 000 people attending, a first in 29 years for the FNB stadium
- However, Bushiri claims he did not sell tickets to make himself rich, and most of the costs for his show came out of his pocket
Many have tried, but no one succeeded, not even Cassper Nyovest, who attempted to fill up the FNB stadium on 2 December 2017.
Even though Nyovest came close, he did not quite manage to fill the stadium completely, when 68 000 people showed up to the concert.
Now, reports suggest prophet Bushiri have filled up the FNB stadium, with over 100 000 people.
According to the Daily Sun, Nyasa Times reported in the past 29 years of the FNB Stadium’s operation, no one has ever managed to do what the controversial pastor achieved.
Briefly.co.za gathered this was not the prophet’s first time selling out arenas.
The show, which was a crossover from 2017 to 2018, and reportedly called ‘Night of Angel Gabriel’, sold 100 000 tickets at the low price of R10 in just nine days.
The organisers managed to press 2 000 more tickets, which sold out within a day’s time.
This meant Bushiri received roughly R1.02 million just for that show, but, the religious leader denied that the ticket money was used to enrich him.
According to Bushiri, most of the R11 million budget for the FNB show, came from his personal account.
He added the R10 price for the tickets would not be sufficient.
Whether or not Prophet Bushiri financially gained from his FNB show, he remains a wealthy man. With investments in hotels, airlines, consultancy agencies, mobile networks, and mining; it’s no wonder he can afford to buy his 6-year-old daughter a Masertti.
