There is a lot of hype about the possible influence of a secret society in the music industry. Have you come across those sites that decode the presence of a culture manipulating occult society in the music videos, performances and actions of artists?
They describe many artists who make it big in the industry as having Multiple Personality Disorder. Its alleged that there is a disassociation with a central lucid Self, and that this is the means by which ‘people at the top’ of this Satanist-regime, otherwise known as the Illuminati, can ritualistically gain mind control over these artists, who are in fact their puppets in the global industry to spread the mind control messages of the supremacist agenda they work for.
Well if this myth is even remotely true one needs to take a couple things into account. We are going to explore some of these with the most important female presence to hail from Cape Town since Goddessa:
Please meet, if you haven’t had the pleasure already, the illustrious Catherine, who is the brains, body and talent behind the musical force that is Dope Saint Jude
So ‘Multiple Personality Disorder’ and ‘Dissociation’ hey, let’s think about that quickly shall we? Whilst being her own unique artist, Dope Saint Jude also reps the collective social identity of being a ‘Coloured’ person in South Africa. A social grouping that was designated an in-between status due to the inconvenient nature of their existence towards the prevalent oppressive governing system of the past. Coloured people were the dirty laundry of colonialists and the Apartheid regime that had a separatist agenda that enabled white supremacy. Coloured people are the fruits of diversity and they make manifest the progressive nature of diversity.
Instead of a celebration of the social-landscape revolution that rapidly took place in SA, Colourful people were dissociated from their rich and complex history to a vicarious no-roots zone where they often had to rely on globalization for their identity and culture. With globalization comes global power dynamics.. Here’s Dope Saint Jude with a white male on a chain, and one cross in her ear, pulling her ‘favourite finger up’ saying her ‘secret super powers’ are locked, and ‘what the fuck you gana do’ in the Golden Ratio music video.
She is clearly subverting global power dynamics by claiming her own. An Illuminati ‘decoding’ site would say something like, ‘the male on the chain represents her dormant controlled state, which her front alter is now leading, which shows she has become brainwashed into being her own handler’, probably also noting the presence of the white male and the cross as signs of her oppression. That would be, as it often is, extremely short-sighted! As the truth is the presence of the white male and the cross were always going to be there in some way or the other- the white male and the cross represent a major shift in the African paradigm. Dope Saint Jude is a brown female taking back her power over these pervasive forces.
She is also wearing leopard print in a dark room, and crawling like a cat in one scene. Beta kitten sex-programming? Often you can only see one eye, while the other is ominously cast in shadow. She must be a mind controlled puppet slave robot of the Illuminati right?
Or maybe the sexually repressed fear-mongering Christian white heterosexual males that write most of the ‘Illuminati decoding’ sites need to get more in touch with artistic expression and just basic reality in general. Like how homology and analogy will show that we are genetically and conceptually linked to animals, and that we do in fact have animal natures that vie for expression all the time! Great artists are able demonstrate and perform not only a personae that provides a face that is socially acceptable, but also transgress these boundaries with what is often hidden or suppressed in modernised ‘civil’ society.
It was on a site decoding the movie Lucy that I read the supremacist agenda of the Illuminati is about believing that us mere mortals are like animals, and haven’t ascended to the near god-like status beyond levels of fear, pain and desire… If this is true then we need to show these peep-holes a thing or two about the primacy of the primal.. Artistically speaking of course..
Also is this girl not a god?
This was supposed to just be a post about Dope Saint Jude’s new release, Keep In Touch Ft Angel-Ho, which is DOPE no doubt! But I’m a fan of context, Dope Saint Jude and the Occult, and contextually speaking I think Dope Saint Jude has all the necessary ‘mystical, supernatural, or magical powers, practices, or phenomena’ needed to provide us with some much needed transcendent artistical expression here in good ‘ol SA, where we have BEEN systematically mind controlled for eons!
Her latest release showcases her usual ability to flip gender, racial and economic norms, in an elaborate spectrum that celebrates Kaapse taal and realities. Her partner in crime on this track, Angel-Ho, is another important presence as a ‘Coloured girl from Kensington’, who is gender non-conforming and has an attitude that screams local Vouge!
Here’s them doing Vogue in the morning:
Keep in Touch !
