Nollywood’s finest, Kanayo O. Kanayo has stated that his impersonation of occultism in movies and on social media is mainly for entertainment and educational purposes.
Speaking during an interview, Kanayo told Chude Jideonwo that he does not practice occultism or JuJu outside his acting profession — stating emphatically that the only juju he knows is Jesus Christ.
“For me, I haven’t done any juju. The only juju I know is Jesus. All those ‘nnanyi, sacrifice’, and so on, ehn. Call me, no problem. As long as you’re paying my cheque,” he said.
The veteran Nigerian actor was in the news recently when he rained curses on the person(s) behind his death rumour which he claimed was widely circulated among a cross-section of Nigerian netizens.
In a video directed at the mischievous mastermind behind the hoax, the veteran Nollywood actor said the person won’t live beyond 7 days on earth and wondered why people just get up to engage in such unwholesome practices.
There was a video of the actor in 2020, where he advised people calling him a ritualist to stop.
He revealed in the video shared by Instablog9ja that he woke up to tons of messages and calls from family members and close friends when they also heard the news.
“You have messed with the wrong guy. You will not live to see the 7th day. My life is not in the hands of anyone. I want to thank all friends who have called since morning to check up. I am not sick, I don’t even have a fever”, he said.
