Veteran Nigerian actress, Idowu Phillips popularly known as Mama Rainbow who recently turned 80 years has revealed how one of her children tried to convince her into becoming a witch to become rich.
The actress who is now a prophetess noted in an exclusive interview with Daily Trust that during the early stage of her career she was very broke, most especially as her husband, Femi died a few years after their marriage, leaving her to raise their children.
Moreso, Mama Rainbow said that when she began her ministry as a prophetess one of her children initially did not align with her religious beliefs.
Taking a trip down memory lane, the actress stated that when things were really tough in the family, one of her children advised that she became a witch so that they can be rich.
She said, “It was tough; after prayers, some of them would always cry. Whenever one of my sons saw me with a Bible he would ask what I was doing with it. At a point, he said he would take me to where I could become a witch and I agreed. He said that once I became a witch we would be okay.”
The legendary thespian stated that when her son realised the price for his mother to become a witch, he dragged her out of the place.
Mama Rainbow said, “I agreed and he took me somewhere, but before God and man, when I got there and they told me the requirements, I was shocked. They said it was the child I loved the most that would be used for sacrifice.
“I told the person that it was the child I loved most that brought me to the place. At that point, my son held my hand and said it was time to go home.”
