He spoke about the hypocrisy of the people and the animosity Nigerians have developed towards their cultural values and identity.
Bella wrote about the ripple effects of colonialism in the country.
In the opening paragraph, Bella Shmurda wrote;
“Why would pastor accept foreign religion and still use black power. No you can’t do the two. E go spoil.”
“Why would pastor accept foreign religion and still use black power. No you can’t do the two. E go spoil.
Christianity for prosperity,
Islam for peace,
The tradition for life.”
Bella went on to more questions about religion that was imported into Africa.
”Same people that wrote Thou shall not steal, Came to our land and steal from us!
They said to love your brothers as your Neighbor or your self…
Why did they take their brother and neighbours as Slaves!
Independence or Sell Out!? Why sign a treaty for Independence?!
They transacted business and call it independence.”
In the latter part of the thread, Bella spoke about higher institutions owned by pastors. He spoke about how their fees and the inability of the average Nigerian to afford those schools.
”Now we’re enslaving ourselves!
Can you parents afford education in the school your pastors built?”
He wrote further;
”Don’t forget Christianity was a jew man tradition; Islam was Arabian tradition.
What’s our tradition and where is it?”
