A new magician in town

There is another promising magician in the making, going by the name of Jemo Magical.

He is in his early teens and is currently an apprentice to the nation’s favourite – Jack Spade.

In his mission to grow the talent, Jack Spade randomly selected 10 boys around the same age who showed interest and taught them a simple magic trick.

It was Jemo Magical who followed the rules as laid out and showed eagerness to learn more.

Jemo Magical has already performed with Jack Spade in some gigs around their hometown of Popondetta, Northern Province.

But at the moment, he performs as a mute magician.

“I explain his magic as he puts on the show for the audience. But this is just a start. I’m teaching him everything I know and some new things as well, so in a way, I’m learning as well.”

Jemo Magical accompanied Jack Spade to the Yu Em Khax grand-finale in Port Moresby, where Jack Spade went through to be the first runner-up of season one.

“I brought him here to see for himself what it’s like to perform in a competition and to a bigger crowd. This was a morale booster for him,” Jack Spade said.

Loop PNG entertainment met up with a shy Jemo Magical after the grand-finale of Yu Em Khax.

“We are building his confidence, and very soon he should be putting a performance all on his own,” his mentor said.

The young magician has already returned to Popondetta to continue his school year.
