…Flaunt Your Wealth challenge hits Malawi
Pastor Hastings Salanje has left his public stunts consume the entire social media sphere in Malawi. The flamboyant South African based pastor had posted a video while flaunting his wealth.
In the video, he also slammed residents of Chilomoni, a township situated in the outskirts of Blantyre city, for rebuking him and rejecting his ministry before he found gold in the Rainbow nation.
He tells them “You see, the people of Chilomoni, am here in RSA enjoying life. As you can see am driving a new Jaguar, 2018 make and my wife is here with me. If you hadn’t rejected me, I would be enjoying this wealth with you the people of Chilomoni”.
His bragging prowess has stimulated what is being dubbed as the #SalanjeChallenge in which people are also poking fun the people of Chilomoni while showcasing things like food, expensive clothing, cars, schools and even houses.
In one of the trending videos, people are seen cleaning their hands using Carlsberg Green beer while slamming the people of Chilomoni saying they were as rejected as Salanje by residents of the township and that they now have money and are enjoying in Lilongwe.
In another video, a woman also flaunts her wealth in a salon where she is having her hair done. She calls out the people of Chilomoni as ‘short sighted’ having rejected her and that she now has money to go to fancy hairdressers and salons in Lilongwe.
Salanje has over the years been known as a braggart. At some point he turns his ire on Malawians calling them ‘stupid’ for not respecting his prophecies and Ministry as he later made huge money in RSA.
The Salanje Challenge has some similarities to the Flaunt Your Wealth challenge or the Falling Stars trend that took over social media in China last month.
