A traditional festival at a community turned tragic when a native doctor failed at demonstrating the potency of his spiritual power.

He wanted to use fire to show that he is invincible but it did not go as he intended as he accidentally set himself ablaze.

A video from the festival showed when he positioned himself in front of the traditional ruler and held a fire torch while his assistants were assisting with dance and incantations behind him.

The native doctor put the fire on his body and his clothe caught fire which caused him to immediately jerked up in fear and he ran off while trying to put off the flames on his body.

That was how the festival came to an abrupt end because the focus shifted to the runawa herbalist that found himself in a life threatening position.

Meanwhile, fast-rising Nigerian singer, Spyro has revealed that he was asked to visit a herbalist so that he can have a successful music career, but he declined.

The ‘Who’s Your Guy’ hit maker said he instead chose to put his trust in Jesus Christ but his colleagues in the industry made a mockery of his decision.

Spyro shared the story in a bid to thank God for how far he has come and being able to make a hit song which gets him recognition.

He said he used to slide into different people’s DMs to solicit support when he was still struggling, but Grace finally found him.

Taking to Twitter, the budding artiste wrote; “Dem say make dem carry me go herbalist wey go run am for me,dem laugh me when I told them JESUS will do mine …Omo I enter DM’s tire but finally JESUS DID.GRACE GRACE GRACE this is my story.”
