Quick-rising Malian star musician Sidik Diabate has lifted the lid on his much gossiped about missing finger.
The 26-year-old has been accused of using mystic to propel his quick popularity on the continent amid allegations he severed his finger for voodoo.
Diabate has long ignored these claims but this evening decided to respond to his detractors.
According to the Afromanding singer, his missing finger is result of an accident he was involved contrary to claims he used it for devilish practice.
‘I had an accident in which i lost my finger. Some of my friends even mocked me for it but i do not care about,’ Diabate who is set to grace the Gambia Independence Stadium January 5th, tells the Malian press.
