PHD Ministries leader Prophet Walter Magaya looked like he had just been woken from sleep when he solemnised Sharon Macheso and Kudakwashe Munetsi while donning a hoodie and a pair of slippers.
Marriage officers usually conduct such services while in suits to show the importance of marriage unions they will be presiding over.
However, Prophet Magaya resembled a loafer dressed in a grey hoodie, a pair of tan "chinos" as well as white slippers at the red carpet affair. His dressing fell short of expectations of the regalia associated with other celebrity preachers like Emmanuel Makandiwa, Uebert Angel and Passion.
When he walked on stage to bless the couple, the guests were shocked by his dressing at the wedding where the dress code was strictly black and red matching the classy decoration courtesy of Daisy Mtukudzi the hostess.
"Ko nhai ndochii ichocho (what's that?)," one guest said, adding, "Is he not aware that there is a dress code?"
Another guest from the PHD Ministries quipped: "Asi vachangomuka (He appears as if he has just woken up)."
"He made a mockery out of Sharon's wedding," another guest said.
Prophet Magaya, who was not in sync with the formal occasion, could have easily been mistaken for a gatecrasher although he gave the newlyweds $2,000.
Of course, during his formative years Prophet Magaya would dress in bright coloured suits including red, something the fashion police would not pass.
Although he is known for portraying a modest lifestyle which includes driving a one litre engine car, the prophet was the odd one out as guests including former top model and Miss Zimbabwe Trust chairperson, Marry Chiwenga, were all dressed to the nines.
Prophet Magaya was invited to the wedding since Nyadzisai Macheso, the wife of sungura ace Alick is a member of the PHD Ministries that fellowships at Zindoga Shopping Centre.
Nyadzisai was full of praises for Prophet Magaya saying since joining the church her life as well as that of her family had changed for the better.
"From the time I joined Prophetic Healing and Deliverance Ministries things are going on well and whether people talk negative things about him but as for me and my family he is the man who brought light to us and I am now experiencing the hand of God.
"I am now at PHD with the children although Baba Macheso is still to join us. But he (Macheso) accepts the prophet's blessings in his activities."
It is reported that Nyadzisai received a prophecy from Prophet Magaya concerning her husband and fortunately with prayers from the man of God, that prophecy changed everything.
Nyadzisai is one of the many popular faces including Nicolas "Madzibaba" Zakaria, Henrietta Rushwaya, and Allan Chimbetu who now fellowship at Prophet Magaya's PHD Ministries.
