Death Scare: Adewusi Assures ANTP Members
Former Ewi exponent, Mr. Sesan Adewusi a.k.a. Tantolorun, has assured members of the Association of Nigerian Theatre Arts Practitioners (ANTP), that there shall be no mysterious deaths in their fold in 2010.
Speaking against the backdrop of an alleged prophecy that death will reign supreme among ANTP members in 2010 by a Lagos pastor, Adewusi, also popularly known as Baba Oloyin Original, said the prediction was aimed at causing confusion and making members to run helter skelter to the pastor's church.
He recalled that a popular prophet has been advising the Ooni of Ile-Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuade, to pray for his health since the monarch ascended the throne in 1980, but in the contrary, the monarch has continued to wax stronger.
“If any prophet wants to use fake prophecy to attract undue publicity in order to gain more members, he is free to buy advert space in any of the newspapers in the country. I like to assure ANTP members that the same prophet once failed, when he targeted fuji musicians,” Adewusi stated in a statement issued from his Iyesi, Ota, Ogun State office.
He said juju music maestro turned evangelist, Dr. Ebenezer Obey Fabiyi, once waxed a record for a prophet, who was predicting doom for juju musicians, saying it was back to the sender.
Adewusi posited that the motive behind these fake prophecies was to ensure that theatre arts practitioners rushed en masse to his church for spiritual help and that the prediction of doom was meant to scare ANTP members into submission, fear and subsequently, do such pastor's bidding.
He noted that the incessant auto crash incidents involving theatre arts practitioners could be traced to their cars, especially sport utility vehicles (SUV) that most of them now ride.
He advised them to read Psalm 140 and pray regularly.
