Tiger accused Shusho of witchcraft

One of Tiger’s most controversial moments came in 2018 when he accused Shusho of claiming to be holier than you while using witchcraft behind the scenes.

“She was consulting witches to ruin my life. I remember when I arrived with my ex-girlfriend in Dar for work, that’s when things started to fall apart,” he claimed.

The Shusha Nyavu hitmaker poured cold water on the producer’s claims, adding that he needed to undergo a mental exam.

Shusho and Tiger fell out after the former accused the director of losing her KSh150,000 Canon 7D camera.

As compensation, the singer reportedly took his editing machine worth KShs 200,000, after which Tiger accused her of conspiring to kill him.

“Hata mtu awe na mapungufu, hakosi wema. If you did it for Rose Muhando, you can do it for your own director Nelson Tiger. Something has to be done,” Mwalugha pleaded.
