Jack Spade

Yu Em Khax magician aims to pioneer PNG’s magic industry

And when announced as the first runner-up, it was not the K10,000 price money that made him smile but the idea that he already had an audience in place.

“I did not start off with Yu Em Khax for the money in the beginning. Rather, I saw it as the platform I was waiting for. I’ve been climbing step by step in my career and Yu Em Khax came along when I was looking for a way to advertise my skill to a bigger audience,” he said.

The win is a complementary success in his path and Jack Spade is taking the next step in his career.
