Karl Marx described religion as the opium of the masses and he might not have been too far from the truth. Africans particularly have been known to do very unbelievable things in the name of religion.
Legit.ng previously reported that a SA pastor, Alph Lukau, claimed to have resurrected a man who had been dead for three days and he even shared video evidence.
However, the Lazarus act raised a lot of interesting reactions on social media as people felt it was nothing short of a drama presentation. Africans on the internet were so amused by the ‘resurrection’ that they decided to re-enact it.
After the video went viral, a new trend was born on social media called the Dead Man Challenge. It entails people trying to mimic the man who was allegedly raised from the dead by the supposed man of God.

This is definitely an interesting trend that might stick around for a while.
Meanwhile Legit.ng previously reported that the backstory involved a theory that the ‘deceased’ had spent the weekend at the morgue which was supposed to bolster the authenticity of the narrative.
However the mentioned morgue, Kings and Queens Funeral Services in South Africa, has vowed to take legal action against Pastor Alph Lukau for dragging its name in the outrageous resurrection.
The funeral home where the dead man was reportedly stored also distanced itself from the report.
