Baba Kunyi is inviting social media users to make easy money through "money rituals without human sacrifice".

Social media is the exclusive preserve of young millennials, shoe retailers and people with political ambitions but it now appears there’s a ‘ritualist’, Baba Kunyi, advertising his services on Twitter.

The twitter account, @BabaKunyi has been advertising money rituals without human sacrifice by posting photos of what appears to be satisfied customers with huge wads of cash and claims of quick solutions to spiritual problems

The account’s bio implores people to call a number provided within and be free from their spiritual problems.

If you want to be a bit more formal, there’s an incomplete email address in one of the tweets carrying Baba Kunyi’s rave reviews.

Although it has only two tweets, it appears the account has been active since February 2018.

One of the tweets carries a photo of what appears to be Baba Kunyi sitting over an earthenware pot with large wads of cash scattered around the room.

There’s no indication of where Baba Kunyi is located. There’s a website, babakunyi.com, but it appears to lead nowhere.

Digital marketing for Babalawos

As strange as this is, it is not the first time that a Twitter account, ostensibly belonging to a ritualist, is advertising “quick solutions to your spiritual problems" on Twitter.

Tweets from 2016 show users expressing their surprise at finding a Babalawo on their Twitter streets.

But where this other Babalawo failed, Baba Kunyi is operating with a whole new social media plan.

The account has been sending tweets at some of the most influential Nigerians on Twitter, with messages from satisfied customers.

Whether the idea is to get them to retweet, or for Wizkid to call him for special consultation, we’ll never know.

What we do know is that it’s working. While the account has only 39 followers as of the time of writing this, its second tweet already has over 300 retweets.

Most of them are out of shock, we’d suppose, more at the fact that a practice that is usually treated with discretion is being advertised so blatantly on Twitter.

Social media platforms have become fora for important conversations, news and trends over the last few years.

Within the large pool of users, vendors and businesses have also found a way to see their wares.

On Twitter, a platform built primarily for opinions expressed in the simplest terms and the conversations that unavoidably follow, any newbie would be surprised at the scale of business that is transacted.

Most Twitter users have grown familiar with the hashtag “#MyCustomerMayBeOnYourTL”.

Blood money and other stories

But nothing quite prepares you to scroll through your TL on a cool Saturday morning and see Baba Kunyi accosting you with something that immediately reminds you of Kanayo. O. Kanayo in a Nollywood movie.

Money rituals and similar practices are elements of the dark aspects of the Nigerian truth that we rarely speak about.
