Well, it turns out Rigan Sarkozy’s life history includes a stint when he was serving a different master other than the good Lord.
He was a devil worshipper.
In a recent interview with Annitah Raey, the ‘Sepela’ hitmaker 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.
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 of prosperity.
“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.
He noted that it all started with the company he kept in the past.
His friends were into women and the party life and since their parents would never give them money for such frivolity, 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 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.
“In there, there was a price to pay depending on the kind 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 but after every eight months, of pregnancy, she would miscarry for a period of five years and that meant that every miscarriage brought with it a different treasure.
Sarkozy added, “I was looking for a job in Tanzania and once I landed a spot in one of the music bands, someone advised me that in order to be successful I had to seek the services of a witch.”
He narrates that some of the orders the witch would give him included stealing a corpse of a child and have 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 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 not 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 Sarkozi’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.
Sarkozi 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.
