All the ‘juju’ I used failed me – Shatta Wale confesses
Shatta Wale has admonished fellow musicians to desist from visiting spiritualists, because he had visited uncountable number of them but they couldn’t meet his expectations.
The Dancehall artiste made the aforementioned revelation in an interview with Christian Agyei Frimpong, host of Anigye Mmre on Accra-based Onua 95.1 FM. In the course of the interview, he posited that:
“We are from Africa, we have lots of ‘juju’ here, If you are an artiste and you think ‘Juju’ can give you a hit, you are deceiving yourself. God needs your patience, your heart, you need to endure pain, God is bigger than everything and I believe God has made me who I am today”.
When asked whether he has visited those unscrupulous people before, Shatta Wale revealed that;
“I have visited lots of mallams, let me say 10 million of them, they couldn’t do what I needed from them. You have no idea the things I was searching in this world but it took the intervention of God who showed me the right way.”
The self-acclaimed dancehall king further stated that “Everything shall pass away but the word of God will still remain; in life you have to believe the maker, I know who I am, people don’t know their identity that’s why they fail in life.
“When I’m talking, I talk with confidence, I don’t talk with fear, I don’t talk nonsense, I talk straight forward, some people think I talk nonsense, I know when they realized it’s God that is working for me, they will come to me and those people are going to be baptized with Shatta movement because Shatta movement is of God”.
Factually, the issue of our celebrities especially musicians trying to pass through the back door for fame isn’t an alien in Ghana’s showbiz industry. Sizeable number of our celebrities have been rumoured to engage themselves in such ‘occultic’ acts. But few of them have been bold enough to admit it in public including Shatta Wale, footballer Asamoah Gyan, others.
