A former hiplife musician known then in the showbiz industry as Kwadwo Denkyem has said he took his music career to a level that nearly ruined his life after he went to a “juju” man with a friend to get a hit song.
Denkyem, who today prefers to be called Nazareth Opoku Agyemang, told Kwaku Manu on his YouTube based Aggressive Interview that he together with a friend started their music journey with the likes of Sarkodie and Dr. Cryme.
“After we made our demo, we were saddled with the burden of finding a producer. As things were not going as expected, I broke out of my music group and went solo with the stage name Kwadwo Denkyem. I still sought for help [getting a producer],” he said.
Nazareth Opoku Agyemang said during his hard times searching for a producer, Sarkodie and others had hit songs and that gingered him to also make it into the limelight.
He said, his quest for success led him to a juju man – voodoo – who made them (Nazareth and his friend) enter into a blood covenant. “He cut us with blade and squeezed our blood for the covenant. But after the whole process and we were about leaving the juju man’s shrine, my friend and the medicine man briefly spoke in a language that I did not understand,” he disclosed.
Mr. Opoku Agyemang said few months after the shrine visit, he started having strange dreams – seeing himself naked among others – and people he told them about the dreams said to him they were normal dreams he was experiencing.
He said he later went mad, was admitted at the Ankaful Psychiatric Hospital and he had been written off by medical doctors that his condition was not medical. Nazareth Opoku Agyemang narrates a dramatic turn of events that a Woman of God, after his long battle with madness, revealed details he only knew about his visit to the shrine.
“It was my encounter with the prophetess who later introduced me to a prophet that they vividly told me the meaning of the language my friend spoke to the juju man when we visited the shrine. My friend had wanted to use me for sacrifice so he gets the hits and become rich,” he said.
Nazareth Opoku Agyemang is today a gospel musician and also a preacher, appealing and testifying to all peoples the existence of God.
