The “prophecy” comes from self-proclaimed South African-based and Nigerian-born prophet David Uche who claimed that the Imali Eningi hitmaker would be involved in a horrific accident.

In a video shared on TikTok and later shared on Twitter, dated 24 February 2023, the “man of God” can be heard saying he sees Big Zulu in a car full of blood. He tells his congregation that they need to pray for the rapper as he foresees the accident taking place in March or April.

The prophet also makes mention of choreographer and Idols SA judge Somizi Mhlongo, however, he does not go into detail.

“His name is Big Zulu. I’ve been praying for him for an extension because this thing will happen in March next month, March, April,” he said. “As I keep praying, I was also praying for Somizi, but now this other man who is very extreme his name is Big Zulu,” he added.

Uche’s prophecy about Big Zulu is not the first about South African celebrities.

In May last year, Prophet Mellontik Orasi reportedly predicted the death of “a male celebrity in the South African arts industry”. He said the media personality would “die shortly if prayer is not made.” He, however, did not mention a name.

When news of former Rhythm City actor Jamie Bartlett’s death broke on 23 May, the prophet claimed his premonition was fulfilled. He shared a picture of Bartlett on Facebook following the news with the caption: “May he rest in peace”.

A month later, the same preacher “prophecied” about the death of singer Kelly Khumalo.

In a deleted Facebook post, Orasi wrote: “Until the [court] case is over. Proper security is needed for Kelly, cold-blood murder. Don’t kill her!”
