Speaking on ‘Time with Tracy’ show, the radio presenter disclosed that many Ghanaian actors and celebrities are consulting ‘juju’ men across the country to seek spiritual protection.

“Our creative industry is full of spirituality. Everyone has what protects him or her,” Dave Hammer said.

The practice he said is contributing to the death of many Ghanaian celebrities within the showbiz industry.

He therefore advised that actors, musicians, models, dancers, presenters and other celebrities who encounter negative issues must pray about it directly to God.

“If you hear any negative prophesy pray about it. God listens. You have to let the spirit of God lead you, otherwise any wind can blow you,” he added.

“You have to let the spirit of God lead you otherwise any wind can blow you… I don’t believe in negative prophecies. I don’t believe it. If you believe that’s where it can have an effect on me” he pointed out.
