- A Nigerian man has criticised Africans and his fellow countrymen for pushing their ancestors and gods aside
- Showing a carnival happening in Brazil, the man ran commentaries on where Nigerians have missed it with their gods
- The aggrieved speaker pinned the subpar treatment given to the deities to an inferiority complex
A video of a man condemning Nigerians for pushing their local gods aside because of civilisation has gone viral.
Filming a carnival on TV, the man said that the event is taking place in Brazil as the name Oduduwa comes on the screen.
The man added that he does not know why Africans cannot pray to their gods except in the ways of the people who once enslaved the continent.

After the Oduduwa procession at the carnival, Sango’s activities came on. The Nigerian went on to say there are people, who despite the way the deities are celebrated internationally, would argue there is nothing good about Africa.
He disclosed that people do not read or research and that is why they take everything they are told without any investigation.
When an effigy of the Alaafin of Oyo came on, the man was excited as he wondered if such celebration is even done in Yorubaland. The commentator said that the rejection of the culture all bores down to an inferiority complex.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a photo of three masquerades on their knees in front of a 'pastor' made the rounds on social media.
Shared by a Twitter user with the handle @Ekwulu who is also identified as Chijoke, he said that he has never in his entire life seen masquerades getting prayed for by a man of God.
In the snap, the supposed man of God placed his hand on one of them as he is captured with a facial expression that suggests that he must have been praying.
