Veteran Nollywood Actress Idowu Phillips, also known as Mama Rainbow, caused a big buzz on social media after she explained in an interview how she was almost initiated into witchcraft.
In the interview with Daily Trustthe movie star and prophetess said things weren’t always rosy for her.
According to her, she was broke early in her career after her husband died a few years after their marriage and she had to fend for the children on her own.
She then told how one of her children persuaded her to become a witch so that she would become rich.
Rainbow Mom said:
“Every time one of my sons saw me with a Bible, he asked me what I was doing with it. At one point he said he would take me to where I could become a witch and I agreed. He said once I become a witch, everything will be fine.
The movie star then explained that she had agreed to follow her son to where she would be initiated into witchcraft.
However, on arriving there, the condition laid down for her initiation meant that the same child who took her there took her hand and dragged her out of the place.
“I accepted and he took me somewhere, but in front of God and man, when I arrived and they told me the requirements, I was shocked. They said it was the child I loved the most who would be sacrificed.
“I told the person that it was the child I loved the most who brought me to this place. At that moment my son held my hand and said that he was time to go home.
