Legendary Coast-based hip-hop artist Ralph Sandal Masai, famously known as Cannibal as well as going by Shettah, has become the latest secular musician to "see the light". He recently talked to nation.co.ke about his life new life and what prompted him to cross to the other side.

After more than a decade in the secular world, you decided to get saved, why now?
You may have realised that I took a hiatus from music a few years ago. All that while, I had been contemplating salvation. There are these two friends of mine who kept preaching to me about salvation but I remained undecided until recently when I finally gave in and got saved. I feel it’s an appropriate time because everything happens for a reason. Besides, these are the very last days as the Bible says and everyone is turning back to religion. Even Snoop Dogg has converted to Islam.

 

Many still won’t believe you for simple reason, you got saved after losing an election?
To be honest with you, I would say me losing elections accelerated my decision to get saved.

Really, why was that?
Simple reason, witchcraft.

What! Could you expound on that?
When I got into politics, I thought it would be a walk in the park but oh boy how wrong I was! It wasn’t as easy as I had expected. I realised most of my competitors and other politicians would go to any length so as to win an election. Many of them are involved with black magic, something they owe allegiance to due to their success in the political arena. So with me not being one who believes in black magic, I questioned what side I’m on.

That’s when I made the decision to accept Jesus Christ as my personal saviour.

Would you blame witchcraft for your loss in the past general elections?
Yes, definitely. Noting how popular I was at the grass root level, my opponents used it against me and it kind of worked to their advantage. I wish I had gotten saved by then, they wouldn’t have stood a chance.
