Traditionalist Blasts Nollywood Filmmakers For Portraying African gods As Evil

Concerned traditionalist condemns the abnormal depiction of African Orisa and Gods as evil by moviemakers because it leaves a negative impression on cultural beliefs.

Based on a Twitter user identified as IfaFunsho @funshographix, it remains a ‘mental colonialism’that even African producers follow suit and sooner or later over time, this notion is usually to be corrected.
Taking to Twitter to voice her opinion, she wrote;

“If Afrikans want to act films about Satan, they’ll use Afrikan Gods as evil to make us think the Afrikan Gods are evil. But if they want to act films on Jesus or prophet Muhammad, they’ll European Gods so that our children will think their roots is evil. That’s mental colonialism.”
