Gospel singer Rigan sarkozi’s life history is an inspiring yet a scary one altogether.
In a recent interview with Radio Jambo’s Annitah Raey, the man who rose to fame thanks to his ‘Wewe ni mungu’ hit song which he featured Daddy Owen shocked many when he revealed that his life has not been a bed of roses, having had to resort to witchcraft services and drug dealing business to survive.
Speaking about his controversial past for the first time ever, Sarkozi revealed that his spirit has been convincing him to speak out on how he turned to the same God he was fighting in search for prosperity.
“As a christian and as a human being, I got saved in 2011 and since then I haven’t spoken about this (practicing witchcraft). So I asked myself why I haven’t and everyday my spirit was constantly urging me to speak out about my life history and I decided to do so since God has a reason why I went through it all. ” Said Sarkozi.
So I did not wake up just one morning and got saved, I have been involved in theft cases, witchcraft among others. I would come in your house and steal your TV set and leave only for you to realize it hours later.
He noted that It all started with the company he kept in the past. His friends were into women and the partying life and since their parents would never give them money for such use, they resorted to stealing household items.
So how did he decide to turn to witchcraft?
Some of our friends were beaten up in the process and that is when we got into drug business which was very closely linked with devil worshiping. So together with eleven of my friends I joined a group called ‘Baduz’ which means ‘twelve followers’ where we got into the drug dealing business where we were tasked to carry out small missions in a bid to earn a luxurious life.
He added, In there, there was a price to pay depending on the kid of lifestyle you wanted to lead, For example I had always admired a big car and a big house, wanted to help people since I used to live in the streets.
I was told in order to gain all that first condition would be; I find a wife and she would have a miscarriage every eight months for a period of five years and that meant that every miscarriage brought with it a different treasure.
I have carried out such activities in three countries; Congo, Kenya and Tanzania before I decided to change my ways. In Tanzania I was looking for a job and once I landed a spot in one of the music bands where someone advised me that in order to be successful I had to seek the services of a witch.
Rigan narrates that some of the orders the witch would give out include stealing a child’s body and having sex with it. After that, one would be forced to cut the child’s umbilical cord and store it in a container, together with his sperms.
The witch would then use then instruct her clients to carry the concoction around and always apply it on their lips or their tongues which would bind their ‘competition’ or enemies if for instance they are applying for employment, and they would be successful.
He went on to reveal that on the day he was due to undergo the whole process, he overslept and missed the opportunity to meet the witch. The witch through Sarkozy’s friend, warned him that if he continued to play with fire he would be consumed.
He opted to seek the same services but this time from a male witch who ordered him to be buried from his neck down for three days, a process which ended prematurely after the witch detected that his spirit was in touch with God as he cried for salvation, and he was chased away.
Sarkozy decided to change his ways for good upon receiving a call from his mother who dreamt that her son had died.
It is at this point where he fled Tanzania with the little that he had and came back to Kenya where he was bred as a young boy and decided to give his life to Christ, despite being as drunk as a fiddler back in 2011.
