In this documentary, Reggie Yates concludes his travels around South African communities by spending a week with Prophet Mboro - a charismatic yet controversial church leader who is adored by his thousands of followers, and renowned as much for his dancing as he is for the `miracles' he performs.
Boasting a collection of expensive cars and wearing an array of jewelry, Mboro has emerged a millionaire from the boom in Pentecostal `mega-churches'.
The former BBC Radio DJ asks if Mboro can possibly be a messenger from God and confronts some home truths when recalling the time he rejected the African Pentecostal faith.
