Producer Mduduzi “Mdoovar” Memela told Daly Sun when they heard the pastor’s claims, they asked themselves how it was possible.

“If it is demonic, then why did it change our lives for the better? When we talked about it as a team, Toss said but this is history no one understands. It came with a revolution and that’s why there’s so much talk about it.”
