Watch video below:

Prophet Passion Java of Passion Java Ministries and Kingdom Embassy church has come under fire for making an insensitive joke on social media. The garrulous prophet posted a video on Saturday in which he claimed that comedian Madam Boss had died from Covid-19 related complications.

Prophet Passion Java’s video quickly spread across social media as some people took him at his word and started mourning Madam Boss, real name Tyra Chikocho. Others were not so quick to believe but inadvertently spread the video as they sought to confirm the apparent death.

Unsurprisingly, this did not go down well with Madam Boss, who was shocked to receive messages saying that she had just died. She issued a strongly worded statement slamming the flamboyant prophet for the bad and emotionally distressing joke. She asked the prophet to take down the video noting that it was insensitive and unfair to victims of Covid-19 and their families.

A statement posted on Madam Boss’ Facebook page reads,

“@prophetpassion Tambai nezvimwe that was a bad Joke 🚯🚯🚯

“She is safe and alive, I Fanwell Peter Mass as Madam Boss’s Strategic Manager I can confirm that her death announcement had nothing to do with the Brand, she as all of us at Madam Boss Entertainment were also shocked to the announcement of her passing… We would like to apologize to all our fans advertisers and partners especially those brands that were mentioned in the viral fake announcement eg Nyaradzo Group…

“This was a very unfair announcement, unfair to all you my fans and all victims of Covid19 and their families, we have since asked the video to be taken down, and to family, I’m sorry you have to go through this kind of unnecessary emotional mess. I love you all.”

Social media users were also not enthused with Prophet Java’s antics arguing that it is culturally taboo to joke around with death. However, others were more sceptical and argued that Madam Boss was now doing damage control after the stunt did not go off as planned. Some even accused Madam Boss of being in league with Prophet Passion. Myzimbabwe
