Nollywood Promoting Money Rituals in Nigeria

Everyday Nollywood produce movies portraying making money through rituals, without any proper disclaimer (Folks) or actually backing up a story with facts.

Today we cry each time we see videos online of youths doing all sort of rituals in the name of making money.

Nigerian cinematography needs to share the blame with what is happening to our youths today.

I know a lot of people will want to put the blame solely on the government.

No matter how we try to past the blame we as a society are part of the problem.

You may ask me why do I blame the movie industry, but I ll tell you why.

“Visual communication” sends an effective and messages to be put across. These could be good as well as bad messages.

A scenario where someone commits a crime on a movie and gets forgiven and sins covered up

Just because they repent and gave their live to God.

This is where Confirmation bias comes into play.

Even where cases are taken to the police and prosecution are brought. In cases of rituals, there are no follow ups to ascertain if actually they was any potency pre arrest.

All we here is “here say”

I remember sometime in 2004/5, I was in Lagos with my dad for a long vacation. One day a boy was being beaten as he was accused of burying a charm in a compound.

He was asked what the charm was for, and he said it was a love charm to attract.

one of the daughters of the owner of the compound. D girl in particular was a very beautiful girl and no where in the same league as the boy or even me myself.

I began to wonder, why would a young man go to such lent to attract a lady you normally can’t get.

Another example is the Spiritual bulletproof.

Many nollywood movies portray the possibility of this type of charm.

As a soldier, I have had the privilege of firing few types of weapon systems. I have seen what type of damage munitions can cause to a causality.

We have herdsmen, Boko haram, kidnappers running rampage all over the country yet this juju people with protection are no where to be found. Their bullet proof vests all of a sudden becomes impotent.

Until today, I have not seen or here any policeman confirm that they took am aimed short at an individual and the bullet hit but never pierced the target.

Although most police men are sh** at shooting 😂 but they do a good job anyway. I digress

Moving targets are quite hard to hit but that doesn’t mean the target is invisible.

Portraying such absurdity on TV is so stupid in my opinion. I class it even lower than some Hollywood action movies that fires 30 round mags without running out of ammo.

I also remember while I was in Lagos, when someone told me, they tested a charmed ring on me. This boys surrounded me and my friend, one of them punched me on the chest. Just because my friend beat up one of them the day before.

Their intention was for me to fall down and start convulsing. But that never happened, and I am sure they would have been disappointed for being duped.

This reminds me of when Dr Joe Abah asked if anyone has actually seen or experienced Jazz (portent ritual) before?

Most response he got were vague, more of “them told me” or “I here say”. Most of the guys that say they saw, had 1001 ways such things could have happened. Not necessarily the charm that has caused it to happen.

Anyway enough of my rant, I know changing this narrative is going to take a long time. I will be glad if I at least manage to convince a potential young lad who might have been thinking of towing such lane. Doing the ritual is not an automatic get rich quick scheme.

You still need to hustle in the street, as everyone. It is that determination you put in that’s making you the money not some useless spirit so calm down.
