Nigerian star Victor Osimhen recently became Africa's most valuable footballer following his €50 million move to Napoli this summer.
The 21-year-old became Europe's most wanted player after scoring 18 goals and six assists in 38 appearances across competitions for Lige 1 side Lille in the 2019-20 season.
Other top clubs like Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United and a few others also made attempts to tempt him with an offer, but the Super Eagles star chose to join the Serie A side instead.
The youngster has equally had his fair share of being introduced into voodooism after revealing that an unnamed woman advised him to do so.
He mentioned this while advising young stars to shun anything fetish and stay focused on building their careers in a short video clip uploaded on the Super Eagles official Instagram page.
Osimhen said: “A woman in my area was set to lure me into fetish thing. I rejected and distance myself. To God be the glory, the woman is still there. (Back to sender) she is still where she is.
“As for money, if you are involved in legit way, it will come. I swear it will come. You don’t need to fortify or go for fetish things. You don’t need to visit “Babalawo” (herbalist) to get your boot fortified in order to be skilful. My brother, if you are good, you are good.
“You don’t need to rob anything on your boot. Better still use the Bible. Not “Juju” (voodoo).” he preached.
The former Wolfsburg attacker will be hoping to justify his huge price tag when the Italian League resumes next campaign.
He is hoping to rub shoulders with the likes of Ronaldo, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Ciro Immobile, and host of others in the race top scorers award. The 21-year-old was voted African best player in the French league last campaign.

He earns a whopping sum of money ahead of sensational youngster Victor Osimhen who will be earning £96,000-a-week at his new club Napoli.
