Auntie Cornie, Joes aunt whom he had stayed with during his secondary school days, had wanted him to marry Belinda, the daughter of a wealthy couple. This idea, according to Cornie, will make Joe rich. But Joe did not, because he wanted to break away from her influence.

When Joe finally married Evelyn and they could not have children for over six years, Auntie Cornie suggested that he divorce her and marry Serwaa, one of Cornies friends, but Joe would not do that.

After trying everything humanly possible without success, Cornie advised Serwaa to use voodoo on Joe and directed her to a spiritualist for help. The concoction that was meant for Joe to take his focus off Evelyn and love Serwaa ended up being eaten by Yaappiah, a mad man who now pursues Serwaa as his lover.
