Legendary Ghanaian Playwright, James Ebo Whyte, known in the showbiz scene as Uncle Ebo Whyte says more magicians have now become pastors.
According to the lead writer at Roverman Productions, magicians who in the past were seen performing on stages and in cinemas have metamorphosed to be ‘men of God’ and own churches.
Speaking to Foster Agorr on Starr Drive, the author, and motivational speaker said, “Magicians are no more on stages and in cinemas, they have styled themselves as pastors. They have brought the same tricks and put God’s name in it and have started churches to make more money.”
He emphasized that “I am making a distinction between well-regulated churches run by people who fear God and preach what the bible says, and churches run by people who I don’t think read the bible.” The renowned playwright recently revealed that he wrote the entire script for ‘Devil’s Wife’ in a space of 24 hours.
He mentioned that he had written over 60 plays in his life, and yet the experience of his yet-to-be-released play ‘Devil’s Wife’ was different. ‘Devil’s Wife’ was written in a 12-hour blitz. I started at 4 am and wrote without stopping till 7 pm. It was almost as if I was taking dictation of some sort” he added.
Catch Devil’s Wife at the National Theatre on 4th, 5th, 11th, and 12th September 2021. Time, 4 and 8 pm for each show. The rate is GhC80. All Covid protocols will be strictly adhered to.
