I still don’t believe music has anything to do with “Juju” but not everybody think like me, I just came across this article on Ghana Music .Com that the “African Girls” singer Castro is used “Juju” to back his success. How true can that be? Read below
Hip-life artiste Theophilus Tagoe, who goes by the showbiz name Castro, is reported to have gone in for a very potent juju, a spiritual charm, to help advance his music career.
Castro, who won the hearts of music fans the world over with his hit track, ‘African Girls’, in which he featured soccer hero Asamoah Gyan, was reported to have gone for the juju from a powerful female spiritualist at Madina Zongo in Accra.
He was said to have obeyed all the ‘juju rules’ and presented a bottle of good quality foreign schnapps, confectionaries for ‘sadaka’ and a cash amount.
The hiplife musician was reported to have personally made an undertaking to reward the spiritualist with a cash amount of GH¢500 in addition to other assorted items if the juju worked in his favour.
Things however got out of hand and the otherwise secret ritual became public when Castro, after the juju, did not pay the GH¢500 to the spiritualist as promised, also refusing to pick her calls.
The seemingly peeved spiritualist therefore gave the musician an ultimatum to pay the amount or she would go public with their undertaking. She said if Castro still failed to pay the money after the issue went public, she would leave him to his own fate and destiny.
Though the management of Castro had refused to talk to News-One about the matter, the musician himself was in the studios of Okay FM for what seemed like a blame-shifting interview with ace presenter Abeiku Santana.
When Abeiku asked Castro about the incident, he said though the issue was true, he was not the one who went to the spiritualist and that a close friend did it on his behalf.
Castro revealed that it was the same friend who introduced him to the spiritualist but admitted that the rituals were done with his consent.
Interestingly, Castro denied that the rituals done were ‘juju. He said the place was more of a Christian church than a fetish shrine although the items that were used in the said rituals included a bottle of good quality foreign schnapps.
