Benjamin Dube Oxford College

Legendary gospel artist, pastor Benjamin Dube has confirmed that he is working on opening a school of ministry, after a fan asked him about it on Twitter.

The Twitter user asked him:“Mr Pastor Dube sir u’ve preached and given us so much good news through your music…when are you going to build a school for some of us the people that want to know the true secret of worship coz the lessons we got are not so good i can tell [sic],”

The pastor then responded: “It’s definitely in the pipeline, God is already working it out,”

This would not be the first time that the veteran gospel hitmaker pursued a business endeavor in the education business.

Earlier this past month Daily Sun reported that the pastor had been approached by entrepreneur, Yamkela Keviet.

Yamkela is the head of Oxford Private College and asked Pastor Dube to become a partner at the now revamped college, which has since been rebranded to Benjamin Dube Private College.
