On Friday, November 15, Nigerian midfielder of the Super Eagles, Ogenyi Onazi, was quoted in an interview with Complete Sports, ‘We’ll beat Ethiopia 2-0’.
Indeed, on Saturday, November 16, it came to pass when Nigeria’s Super Eagles triumphed over Ethiopia 2-0, winning them their ticket to the World Cup series. At first, many found the young footballer’s prediction simply amusing. Now, that it actually has come to pass, there is much debate about how he could make such an accurate prediction. Some are proclaiming Onazi a young prophet, but many are pointing fingers to his spiritual father and mentor Prophet T.B. Joshua.
T.B. Joshua is a well known televangelist who owns his own Christian television network Emmanuel TV and founder of The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (The SCOAN) in Nigeria.
He is known for his many prophecies about individuals and worldwide events including football matches. Onazi, who grew up in the church, started his football career in T.B. Joshua’s youth football team My People FC.
After his latest football prophecy about the Super Eagles 2013 AFCON Cup victory, T.B. Joshua announced that he had officially stopped releasing football prophecies to the public, but could it be that he is still releasing them to his spiritual son Onazi?
