Dr Hamilton Qhoshangokwakhe Nala was born on 28 August 1963 in the rural outskirts of Inkandla, approximately 250 kilometres North of Durban. Born from a polygamist marriage, he is the fifth child of Bantungani Charles (Canasa) Nala and a second child from Philisiwe, MaCebekhulu (his second wife). His father was a well-known Traditional Healer in the area. As a young boy, Nala would be sent by his father to pick up healing herbs from the bushes closer to his home.
Nala grew up as a very sick child, with no hope of surviving or making it to adulthood. As he was told, he recalls very vividly that at some point, while he was admitted at Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital, Gauteng Province, he died and rose again in a few hours. Not unexpectedly from the older generation, his parents did not want to talk much about this incidence.
Nala was a very obedient child which made him to get close to his father. For this reason, his father treated and regarded him as an heir. As a result, it would normally be expected that should his father die, he would take over all his duties and responsibilities as the head of the Nala Tribe. This would include taking over his father's practice as a Traditional Healer (Ukuthatha izikhwama zobunyanga).
Nala grew up as a very inquisitive child. His intimate relationship with his father gave him an advantage of asking his father about anything and everything that pertains to his family and life in general.
Due to ill-health, he was the only one amongst his older siblings to go to school, although at a very late age. He loved and enjoyed school but due to financial constraints, he was forced to terminate his schooling at Sub Standard A (Grade 1).
His encounter with God
During his childhood he used to be visited by God and angels during his sleep. During these visits, God would literally speak to him. This happened for a very long time. A remarkable visitation was when the angels came to him in a dream and gave him a gift. He started to be very confused by these visitations. He sought for answers but could not find anyone to explain to him. It was only when he met a certain 'Reverend' (whose name he cannot remember); who advised him to pray to God and say: "Lord, I have heard about you but I do not know you. Please reveal yourself to me. I will do everything you want me to do." Indeed he went to pray that prayer.
Another remarkable incident took place one day while on his way home, he met a Zionist woman who stopped him and started to foretell him about his future. She told him that he would never work for a "white man"; meaning he would never be employed. However, against this prophecy, in 1984/1985 he went to Durban to look for employment. He did not find any formal employment, most probably in fulfillment of the prophecy from a Zionist woman.
After many such visitations, prophecies, visions and dreams, it became clear to him that the calling of God was upon him. With no clear direction, in 1985 he yielded to the call of God. This caused a lot of turmoil and misunderstanding in his family, which led to him to being disowned as he was viewed as a rebel who had neglected family traditions. This caused divisions in the family. As much as the family was against him, some took his side but supported him privately in fear of victimization from the rest of the family. His move to Durban marked the beginning of the manifestation of God's calling in his life.

King Dr HQ Nala founded the concept called the World of Plenty. This came as a result of his conversation with God about his father's and mother's surname. God then mandated him to lead His people into the World of Plenty. As he defines it, the World of Plenty is a spiritual realm which is experienced by the right state of mind through faith in the finished work of Christ; a spiritual location, not a physical or earthly location; a realm of more than enough, where nothing is missing and nothing is broken; a world of no pain, sickness and disease; and a world where poverty, lack and shortage do not exist. This is a world of completely no evil. As a philosophy of life, it suggests that poverty and riches are a state of mind. The World of Plenty has changed many people's lives through a change of mind-set and a way of thinking and talking.
