Looks like the gospel fraternity cannot catch a break at this moment – if they’re not facing allegations of bribing their way to awards from George Quaye, they are facing allegations of using ‘juju’ to enhance their career from one of their own.
We can’t keep dismissing these as not true because as the saying goes – there’s no smoke without fire!
Gospel songstress Nyamedie, in an interview with Zionfelix.net, said that many gospel artists in the country go for ‘juju’ to enhance their careers.
She said it’s not necessarily the fault of the singers, because when they need help from their pastors to launch their careers, the pastor refuses to help because they fear the artiste would overshadow them if they become famous.
“It is true that most gospel musicians go for “juju” to help their career. I believe pastors are the reason why most of these people go for juju.” she told the blogger.
“There can be a singer at church who is very anointed but because that person is not the pastor’s favourite, they will not give the person a chance to minister. There are several people who have good songs but because all attention will be given to them instead of the pastor if they are helped, they will try to hinder their progress.
“There are some people who have been worshiping God for long hoping their shine will come but since they are not getting the support from humans, they run to a fetish priest for “juju”. she added.
Nyamedie, pressed for evidence, said she does not have any but she’s heard several rumours of the act and is convinced it happens all the time.
