Ancestral Calling

In an interview with Times LIVE Macks Papo stated that he is "in touch" with his ancestors. "I went through a change. I am a very sensitive person. I am in touch with my ancestors. I am my ancestor's child. When my ancestors want me away from the wild and jungle of the industry, they take me away from it because they see that I am going crazy or could die. They share me with this world.

"I have for many years had the calling but mine is different in that I have not had to be initiated or go thwasa. I minister through my talents and acting. Those close to me know about it because they see that I am different. I am very spiritual. I meditate. When I divorced, I went back. I went back at every level."
