The Richest Pastors In Africa Who Live Luxurious Lives

Many people select religious paths, but the handful who are ordained to be pastors are likely to be the most powerful, renowned, and wealthy. Pastoring is now proving to be a very lucrative profession, owing to the large number of believers and followers they lead, as well as their international visibility and other lucrative undertakings.

On the other side, we attempted to reveal the hedonism, Hollywood-style lifestyle, and, in some cases, financial corruption that accompanied these individuals' achievement in reaching the heart and soul of African communities.
