Popular Nigerian Actor Adewale Alebiosu, who regularly plays the role of a native doctor or Ifa priest in Yoruba movies,has revealed that reciting some incantations in movies had some adverse effects on him in real life.
In a fresh interview with BBC Yoruba, Alebiosu said he was just doing his job as an actor and that he never knew the incantations he was reciting would come back to haunt him in real life.
“I never knew there was so much more to the incantations I was delivering. I thought I was just delivering my lines, not knowing there are repercussions to follow. Whenever I get home after the act, while I sleep I would see some strange beings and some would turn to goats and start biting me.”
The actor warned up-coming actors interested in playing such characters to be weary of the repercussions and also ensure they are prayerful.
