Malaysian rapper offers reward to find bomoh who used black magic on him
Caprice, whose real name is Ariz Ramli, will pay $9,900 to whoever can identify the culprit behind the supposed hex.
Malaysian rapper Caprice is convinced that someone has placed a hex on him after finding a mysterious object in front of his car.
The singer, whose real name is Ariz Ramli, said he was just returning from watching a movie when he found the object. He posted a photo of the charred remains of an insect with a strand of hair sticking out of its body on his Instagram account on Thursday (Sep 5).
The remains is suspected to be that of a pelesit, or shape-shifting spirit; according to folklore, these spirits can transform into grasshoppers.
Caprice has offered a RM30,000 (S$9930) reward to anyone who can identify the bomoh (traditional Malay shaman) and the person responsible for hiring said bomoh.
He wrote on Instagram: “The next time you want to send something over, send something with horns la. You better pray to the devil that I don’t find you.”
He apologised to his fans for not being his usual self and explained that he doesn’t normally believe in black magic and the like, but “a lot of weird s**t has been happening around me and my friends.”
He added: “I’m tired bro. I don’t know what to believe. I just want answers.”
Following which, he said, he wants to slap the person involved before letting God handle the rest.
