Babs Cardini, a 19-year-old magician, though gifted in the art, yet the one thing he may not be able to do at least for now is to turn things into money for his Nigerian fans. For many who have seen him perform and admired him, having someone convert things into money will better solve their financial needs rather than just watching stunts.
The young Nigerian magician made this known in an interview with the BBC. Cardini, who said he hates being optimistic, added that in the next three years, he wants to be one of the greatest magicians in the world.
He said, “wwhenever I am performing, people ask me, am I using jazz, am I using voodoo? Am I using any sort of tricks or sleight of hand? I have loved magic since I was five but I officially started magic when I was 16 years old.
“Everywhere I go to, people are excited with me and they have been contacting me, trying to be my friend and know me more.”
He said he gets his inspiration from watching other magicians perform on Youtube.
“Me and Magic, we are like 5 and 6. It’s kind of self-taught and a gift at the same time and more practice. I go on Youtube to look at people who are great at magic, who are better in magic and see what they do. Not like I watch tutorials because if you are watching tutorials on Youtube, you don’t get to go far
"When Nigerian, they see me as a magician, they are wowed and they still ask me, can you turn this into money? Most of the request is always about money,” he said.
