mind control juju

What does juju mean in this context?

‘It was the three of us at the Mingo,’ Jerome says. ‘And after you went into vapor lock, it was just Holly and me. We did okay.’ ‘Last time was different,’ Holly says.
‘Last time he wasn’t capable of mind control juju.’ ‘I still want to come.’

    Juju is in our WR Dictionary:

    - an object superstitiously revered by certain W African peoples and used as a charm or fetish
    - the power associated with a juju

    King is not using it literally, but is using it in the way johngiovanni has suggested.
