Famous Ghanaian gospel musician, Michael Oware Sakyi, widely known as OJ, has confirmed the use of voodoo powers (also known as Juju) by some musicians in the Ghanaian gospel industry.
According to Minister OJ, a fellow gospel artiste once took his newly released song to the shrine.
Speaking to television host, Stacy Amoateng, on ‘Restoration with Stacy’, the gospel singer revealed that many Ghanaian gospel singers are now resorting to ritualists to boost their music careers.
The musician, who failed to disclose the name of his industry colleague, indicated that even though the singer tried to bring him down, he finally got the humiliation of his life.
OJ stated that the gospel singer practically carried his CDs together with some other items to the ‘juju’ man in his desperate attempt to destroy him.
"They do it, somebody has done that to me before,” OJ told the TV host.
The respected further noted that he did not discuss the evil plot by the said musician with anyone, but a number of prophets called to warn him about it.
“It was revealed through prayer and three prophets confirmed it. They hadn’t seen it, I had not told them anything and they told me how the person was going to be disgraced and truthfully the person has been disgraced,” a Citinewsroom report quoted.
OJ further mentioned that some people have ventured into gospel music because they think others are benefiting from it.
“People have very funny reasons for doing things. Some of us what we are doing is a calling and it is a covenant that my grandfather had with God to give him somebody like this in the family. Therefore I don’t struggle to write my songs. I can’t run with Usain Bolt,” he said.
The musician further advised that people who are not called to be gospel musicians should find other jobs, rather than pulling down those who are progressing.
OJ, who is said to be one of the best songwriters in Ghana, has released a number of inspirational songs which many have linked to practical life experience.
Some of OJ's songs include, ‘Onipa Hia Mmoa,’ ‘Maye Se Mo Pen,’ ‘Apo Jesu,’ ‘Tete Botan,’ among others.
