Nigerian singer Asa has confessed that she is so much afraid of fetish people that she does everything to avoid them.
The singer made this revelation while performing at the maiden edition of the Spice TV Lifestyle Honours concert recently in Lagos.In order to have a better performance, she pulled off her shoes. But on a second thought, she instructed her team to look for it and made sure they picked up both footwear.
“I cannot leave a pair of my shoes on the stage. I am afraid of fetish ('juju') people. Please, look for the other shoe before it gets lost.”
A lady then came on stage to pick the shoes and Asa became visibly relieved. Even though she said this with a smile on her face, it was obvious she didn’t want to leave anything to chance.
Asa, who hasn’t performed in the country in a long while, started the night on a conservative note. With songs such as Fire On the Mountain, Jailer, Bibanke, The Way I Feel and Moving On, the singer left the audience gasping for more.
