 When he was interviewed by Vanguard Newspaper, he was quoted as saying;

''One day I was in the bush to gather firewood when the hand of God found me and from the bush I was taken to a mansion where an angel taught me the Word of God, secrets of life and many other things.

Jesus Christ appeared to me in that mansion. He anointed me and told me that I will be an evangelist to the world. The oil Jesus poured on my head flew for seven days physically. One of the angels took me back to our village and my father was surprised seeing the anointing oil flowing.

I was the first to accept Christ in my family. My encounter with Christ was unique because nobody preached to me. Even as a Muslim, my father loved Christianity. Every year he brought the best of his farm produce to the church. He said he had a dream where he saw me in the midst of a large crowd preaching the gospel. Before I was born, there was another prophecy that I was going to be a Nazarene from God.''
