In a highly religious society like Nigeria, many people believe that citizens often have misplaced priorities. One of such people is Erhiga Agarivbie better known as Erigga.
The Nigerian rapper recently had heads nodding in agreement after he took to Twitter to share his thoughts on Nigerians and their attitude towards fighting for their rights.
According to him, they don't play with their religion and can fight for God but the opposite is the case when it comes to fighting for their right as they leave it for God to handle.

We also allow our politicians create more thru humongous corruption, nepotism, misappropriation of our commonwealth and utter disregard for human rights. We fail to hold them accountable even 4 campaign promises. We turn around and blame God. Haba."

This comes shortly after a Sharia court in Kano state sentenced 22-year-old singer, Yahaya Aminu Sharif, to death by hanging for blasphemy against Prophet Muhammad.
According to reports from Premium Times, the Sharia court judge, Aliyu Muhammad Kani, gave the verdict after finding Sharif guilty.
The 22-year-old singer had reportedly committed blasphemy against the prophet in the lyrics of one of his songs which he circulated via WhatsApp in March 2020.

While many felt the singer is protected by the freedom of speech under a law supreme than the one under which the Kano judgement was delivered, some Nigerians thoroughly condemned Sharif's action.
