eShun has revealed in an interview on Okay FM that most Ghanaian musicians seek spiritual backing or better still ‘juju‘ to fuel their popularity in the music industry.
The Quophimens signed act recounted how a traditional priest approached her with an offer to back her career spiritually, so she can finally release a hit song like the others.
Unfortunately, she refused to mention names of colleague musicians who have consulted the traditional priest in question for spiritual support as revealed to her by the priest.
“I can’t mention names. However, he mentioned some of my colleagues. Some of these musicians are making hit songs because they have spiritual backings”, she said.
However, eshun posited that she’s not bothered by the fact that she has not made it big in Ghana music industry despite the concern expressed by her loyal fans.
“It is a process, everyone needs to go through it. It doesn’t bother me at all”, she stated.
Recall that gospel musician Adu Patrick once said that about 70% of Ghanaian gospel artistes rely on “juju” to back up their career. Besides, rapper Tinny, as well as Flowking Stone, have all shared similar sentiment sometime ago.
Therefore, what eShun is saying has an element of truth and validity.
