Highlife musician D-Flex has made some disturbing revelations about how some of his colleague musicians and the entertainment industry as a whole use ‘Juju’ to attain money and fame.
In an interview on Happy FM’s ‘Ayekoo’ after drive show, the musician told the host DJ Advicer that he does not do ‘Sakawa’ in response to whether he does that to get money to invest into his music since it is rumoured that others do.
“Some but me I don’t do ‘Sakawa’, I know a lot of them but that’s their job,” he disclosed.
He attributed the struggle in the industry which propels musicians to seek for spiritual help to the fact that there are no investors like there used to be in the past.
“There were producers who would buy your music outright in the past, but now you have to hustle to get everything like going to the studio and shooting the video done on your own,” he explained.
“You have to invest in your craft. Since you have the talent and you want to explore and the means are not there, you have to do what you have to do to get your self out there,” he added.
D-Flex further explained that the ‘Juju’ practice is more common now than before.
“It is now that people are really using ‘Juju’ on people. What used to happen in the past is nothing compared to what is happening now. Do you know what people are doing? I’m in the industry and I know what’s going on to get fame and to be popular,” he disclosed.
“Some of them pour blood on things before they go out and before they go for shows. Yes I’m telling you and not just musicians, it happens in the entertainment industry as whole,” he added.
As to whether he also practices that, he said, “I don’t need to do that because I’m a Muslim and I believe every charm is in the Quran and I have the Chief Imam, I can go to him to say a prayer for me and give me directions to follow from the Quran.”
