According to Nakimera, some of her counterparts weren’t happy seeing her rise, so she felt using witchcraft would save her from likely danger.
“Yes, it definitely has a price,” Nakimera said during an interview with Sanyuka TV recently when she was asked if there is a price for fame. “And if you are competition to some people, and you start threatening people you found in the industry… and that’s what happened to me, I think I scared some people.”
The songstress, who said she later decided to become born again, went on: “To tell you the truth, with Jesus as my witness, I visited witch doctors and some people understand that… Not for fame, but to protect myself. But God delivered me from all that.”
She continued: “I’m a born-again. Jesus leads. I feel good. I think I’m the happiest I’ve ever been. I don’t even know how to explain that. Because in life we are always looking for so much, but for the first time in my life, I’m calm, settled and happy. The rest will come because Jesus is overseeing everything.”
She went on: “I don’t know how that makes sense to people out there, but Jesus provides peace. I’m very fine. I’m blessed… I had to give my life to Christ, and I had to choose… God has given me more than I expected.”
Grace Nakimera became a household name after releasing songs like Anfuukula, Kawonawo, Nvawo Nawe and Sexy.
But she later disappeared from the music scene, only returning with a focus on gospel music, abandoning secular songs.
During interviews, she revealed that she had been bewitched, suffering paralysis and doctors couldn’t diagnose the illness.
She said it was through prayer that she was able to heal from the illness. Her music career has failed to take off again though and she is mostly involved in charity work through her organisation called the Feed the Street Foundation.
