From the mysteries of existence to the secrets of death, the universe is a large collection of endless secrets. People have turned to their spiritual side to try to explain or understand many of these mysteries since the beginning of time, or merely to satisfy a craving for fame, love, healing, or money. When it comes to the use of muthi, celebrities are no different, and most of them don't even try to hide it. Many people are open about their spiritual side and seek guidance from their "ancestors" on a variety of issues.
Some of our fav famous faces have either been suspected, accused or out rightly admitted to using or dabbling in muthi- here they are.
The top of the list is Zodwa Wabantu. Without a doubt, the entertainer's every move is loaded with controversy. She has a gift for getting people talking, whether it's dating 'Ben10's, being a self-proclaimed panty-less dancer, or being blacklisted from various countries. Zodwa's candid admission that her success is directly due to her use of muthi definitely shocked her fans. When she released a video on Instagram of herself seeing a traditional doctor, she reaffirmed her admission of her belief in muthi.
Sjava, a popular South African musician and actor, is up next. The musician has also been outspoken about his usage of muthi, claiming that it is a part of his culture that he values. Some of his supporters believe that his success is linked to cultural norms, but he has never admitted it.
Mampintsha Shimora, a well-known music producer, is the next person on our list. Despite the fact that he has never admitted to using muthi, he has been suspected of doing so. Surprisingly, his 'father in-law' was the one who made the claims. Reverend Mbongeni Simelane, his 'father in-law,' said in an interview that witchcraft was the only reason his daughter was still with Mampintsha, who had assaulted her on several occasions, including on camera.
Teko Modise, a professional footballer, is another unexpected name on the list. The footballer claimed to having multiple brushes with muthi while with the Orlando Pirates. The athlete described how his former football team used muthi to win games and how players were required to soak their socks in various 'medicines' before games. Crazy!
Bonang Matheba, another popular figure, has been accused of the practice. Her brief romance with rapper AKA ended in a series of conflicts, with the rapper accusing her of using muthi to coerce him into leaving his baby mama and falling in love with her. Obviously, queen B did not respond to these allegations, and the news faded quickly; yet, the accusations live rent free in our heads because to how crazy they actually are.
Boity Thulo, a South African charmer, rapper, and businesswoman, rounds off our list. This public figure has discussed her ancestral calling and what it means to her. She's also been open about why she decided to become a sangoma.
