Malawi-born Prophet Shepherd Bushiri’s daughter turns five on Christmas Day but her dad got ahead of the celebrations by wishing her an early happy birthday on his Instagram page.

The SA-based prophet took to both Instagram and Facebook on Wednesday to share photos of the new car which, according to Wheels 24, costs anything from a whopping R1,65 million.

“I always count myself blessed during this time of the year because I get the honor to celebrate, not only one but two God-given gifts in my life.

I celebrate the birth of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and also the birth of our first daughter, Israella Bushiri.

It seems like just yesterday when her little palms held my forefinger. It seems like only a while ago when I celebrated that finally I could lift her up and allow her to rest on my shoulders. It’s been a joy and heavens honor to watch her grow from being a baby to being the strong and brave child that she is today. I count myself blessed because not only did she give me a reason to smile but she gave me the opportunity to be called a Dad.

My sweet little daughter, my pride and joy. May God’s loving kindness always shine on your beautiful face. I prophesy long life! You shall be great and yours, shall be a life that heaven celebrates.

Happy birthday my princess! ” Bushiri captioned the pics. “Happy birthday my princess.”
