Controversial Ghanaian prophet Emmanuel Badu Kobi has made a sensational claim that Argentina were able to beat Brazil in the 2021 Copa America final because of sports betting.
Badu Kobi, popular in Ghana for making political and football predictions and prophesies, claimed God had revealed to him that Brazil’s Les Seleção were destined to win over La Albiceleste of Argentina in the final which was staged at the Maracanã in Rio de Janeiro.
PSG attacker Angel di Maria scored a 22nd minute goal from a Rodrigo De Paul superb crossfield ball to ensure the pastor’s prophet did not come to pass.
Tens of thousands of Ghanaian football fans took to social media to mock the pastor over his failed prophesy but he has finally replied his critics by saying the prophesy failed because of sport betting.
“When I prophesy about football and you want it to come to pass, don’t use God’s words for betting. The prophecy will fail, God’s word is not for betting. He went further to urge his critics to direct their anger and questions to God instead of attacking him who is just his agent,” he said.
He labelled his critics as ignorant fools who only interest in using his prophesy to make financial gains.
