No Better Time To Convince The Chinese That Jesus Christ is A Miracle Healer Than Now.
Doctor Liang Wudong, 62, died fighting Coronavirus to save lives. Thousands of other healthcare and medical practitioners are on the frontline.
But when the Chinese are done fighting and curbing this epidemic. Then you will reappear with your little book of lies (bible) to tell them how your Jesus Christ is a mighty man in battle and a miracle healer? And tell them how they will burn in your imaginary hellfire for eternity for not believing you? Why won’t they burn your little book of lies/bible and demolish your shrines/Church buildings.
Adeboye, Oyedepo, Apostle Suleiman and David Ibiyeomie, I’m sure your private jets haven’t ran out of fuel and haven’t lost GPS signal to China.
Chris Oyakhilome the hair perming and phony speaking pulpit entrepreneur make your way to China now.
Stop telling us how powerful your Jesus Christ is in a medieval comic book. Just make your way to Wuhan province of China right now and show us, or forever keep those tales by moonlight stories to yourself.
Thank you to all men and women who are risking their own lives and health to save others. History will forever be kind to you all.

You have been acting movies demonizing African traditional Religion. You have portrayed Ikenga in the most negative image. You have portrayed Fenibeso, Egbesu, Eshu, Ekwensu, Oshun, Amadioha, Ogun, etc, as evil, demonic, and low vibrational entities that should be destroyed. Everyday, you make movies demonizing African traditional religion.
Your pastors, in your movies walks into an ancestral shrine and waves their bible and the traditional priest gets struck by lightening.
For generations you guys have lied and caused havoc with your negative portrayal of our African deities and spirituality.
Yet, you can’t take a simple joke from Netflix that Jesus is gay? Why are you guys so hypocritical? Why the anger over a comedy? You guys can’t even perceive the aroma of the food you’ve been cooking for generations.
Me: Nothing to add, he took words off my mouth.

Countless times I’ve had to agonisingly listen to fellow Africans being grateful for slavery and colonisation, because to them, if the whitemen did not come, Africa would’ve remained a ‘dark continent’ Africa would’ve remained ‘uncivilised’ They are convinced Africa and Africans were savages dying of hunger, starvation and diseases until the white man came to the rescue. They say Africa wouldn’t have had education or know God if slavery and colonisation didn’t happen.
To every Igbo, black person or African who falls into this category or has same mindset. I have a message for you.
Igbo race, like every other African culture were progressing and developing in all spheres of life at their own pace pre slavery and colonial era.
The Igbo people had:
Nka = Science
Uzu = Technology (Blacksmithing)
Ogwu Agwo = Medical Science
If you’re Igbo you might be conversant with the term ‘Nka na Uzu’
Move the western world and African world back 600/1000yrs ago, then maybe we will understand who was civilised and who was dying of hunger and diseases.
But as many black people and Africans have wondered and asked how things were with Africans prior to the invasion, many have believed we were naked savages jumping from the trees, I will give you a glimpse.
Africa from east, west, north and south have left behind evidences of a progressive people, an evolving people in every sphere of life before the abrupt disruption by slavery era, and colonial era.
For example in:
1) #Education: By 16th century Mali 🇲🇱 was the hub of international students, they had the famous university of Sankore, Sidi Yahya university and Djinguruereber university.
The Sankore university had capacity of about 25,000 students, with over 100,000 manuscripts. The evidence is still there in Timbuktu.
Not forgetting the famous Library 📚 of Alexandria in Egypt founded in 295 BCE.
2) #Metallurgy: Africans had successfully progressed and evolved from the Stone Age to the Iron Age and Bronze Age simultaneously. The evidence is there closer to home.
The Igbo Ukwu bronze in 8th & 9th century.
The Ife bronze in the 13th century
The Benin bronze in the 16th century. The Benin people were also manufacturing glass and glass beads. The Great Wall Of Benin, is considered arguably the largest single archeological phenomenon in the world, it was four times longer than the Great Wall Of China, and consumed a hundred times more materials than the great pyramid of Cheops. They couldn’t have been idiots and not civilised to have achieved such feat.
The evidences of African metallurgical developments are out there all across Africa, the Sahel, sub Saharan Etc. You just need to educate yourself.
3) #Mathematics: Just educate yourself about the concept of “Fractal Geometry” which was in existence in Africa long before recorded history, and it is quite evident and applied in games, arts, social design structures, architecture, divination and trade systems.
Read up on Binary Numeral System, Which was credited to Africa and widely known through out Africa before it was known to the rest of the world. This Binary numeral System influenced the western Geomancy, which would lead to the development of today’s digital computer.
The oldest evidence of mathematical symbols were found in the mountains of Swaziland 🇸🇿, South Africa 🇿🇦 and Congo. They’re called;
A) lembombo bone (35,000 BCE)
B ) Ishango Bone (18-20,000 BCE)
4) #Medicine: They say Hippocrates of Greece 🇬🇷 was the father of medicine. But before Hippocrates, there was Imhotep from Kemet (present day Egypt) who was practicing medicine and writing on the subject 2,200 years before Hippocrates.
The dangers of smoking tobacco was documented in the Timbuktu manuscripts long before the West begin to discover the effects of tobacco to the human body.
The concept of Inoculation was already a common use in west Africa, before any European showed up on African shores. The west Africans were already inoculating themselves against small pox, read about the Akan people in Ghana.
In Djene they’ve already discovered mosquito as a common cause of malaria and removal of cataract was a common surgical procedure.
In east Africa, the likes of Uganda 🇺🇬 and Rwanda 🇷🇼 were already performing Caesarean sections on a regular basis in the early 19th century.
The expectant mother would be anaesthetised with banana 🍌 wine and herbal mixtures were used to initiate healing.
Dear African child, just take some time out and research on precolonial and pre-slavery Africa and our developments, growth and evolutions on Textiles, Agriculture, Architecture, Maritime Technology, Commerce Etc.
I can reasonably and confidently assert that , slavery and colonisation did Africa more damage and harm. Because they disrupted our evolution as a people, they obstructed our development as a people, that’s what is called “Arrested Development” They set us back 500yrs behind them, they’re 500yrs ahead of us in this human race, thanks to slavery and colonisation.
When it comes to the real history and story of Africa and Africans prior to the encounter with the white man, many Africans are suffering from temporary and permanent amnesia, which has resulted in developing a Stockholm syndrome mentality, that they’ve become grateful for slavery and colonisation, because they thought and believe we did be doomed had we not been colonised. Well, I’m not surprised, for we are a product of an education that taught us “Mongo Pack discovered river Niger” and David Livingstone discovered Zambezi river. Many Africans still believe it till today.
As Honourable Marcus Garvey said “If we as a people realized the greatness from which we came we would be less likely to disrespect ourselves.”
— Marcus Garvey
And as Muhammed Ali the greatest said “What is written on the walls of KEMET and in the books of TIMBUKTU is also written in the hearts of AFRICAN WARRIORS”
Be an African warrior, know yourself, know your story and history not His-story.
Until the lion tells his side of the story, the tale of the hunt will always glorify the hunter.
Thank you 🙏🏿

I don’t think or talk about ancestral curse.
I think and talk about ancestral blessings.
Go look in the mirror, if you like what you see, be thankful to your ancestors, they made it possible.
If you blush when they call you fine girl, beautiful woman. If you consider yourself strong and handsome man. You see that your eye colour, physique, mannerisms and tone of voice are all thousands of years old, all genetically preserved and transferred down your ancestral family lineage to you. Be thankful to your ancestors.
“If you look deeply into the palm of your hand, you will see your parents and all generations of your ancestors. All of them are alive in this moment. Each is present in your body. You are the continuation of each of these people” (This is my own understanding and concept of reincarnation).
If you love that space of land you call home, be grateful to your ancestors, you never know what they went through to secure, protect, preserve it so you can inherit it.
If you love that language you call mother tongue. Be proud of your ancestors, for they gave you a tongue and voice you can call your own.
Think about ancestral blessings, don’t let religious zealots cajole you into all that illusionary ancestral curse.
Ancestral blessings are mine….Ezigbote Nwafo Dim kam bu.

This little piece is more of an appeal to my African Christian, Muslim, Judaic and atheist communities.
Today 31st October is Halloween festival across Europe and America. Halloween basically originated from the celebration of the dead members of a Celtic community. Christians appropriated this ancient traditional festival of the Celts and called it the Feast of All Saints or feast of all Hallows’ to remember dead Christian saints. European and American Christians didn’t demonise Halloween, their atheist community didn’t cajole and make mockery of it as bullshit and irrational. They didn’t demonise, moralise or rationalise it, rather they monetised. The National Retail Federation estimates consumers in the USA alone spent a record $9.1 billion in 2017 Halloween festival celebration.
Last week from 25th -29th October was Diwali festival. Hindus, Sikhs and Jains both in India and across the world take part by decorating houses and public spaces with thousands of lights, candles and colourful designs. As well as the bright colours and glittering lights, there’s music, dancing, delicious food and a cresting wave of community feeling. The Indians wherever they’re found are doing everything possible to promote and market their Diwali festival to the world. They are monetising it, recking in millions of dollars in just five days, while promoting their cultural identity.
Don’t be fooled, Christmas is nothing but an ancient European traditional festival, appropriated by the church. Again the Europeans who understand how things work, didn’t throw the baby out with the bathwater. They’ve monetised their ancient tradition of sun worship, now in Jesus name, and exported it to the world. Christmas is typically the largest economic stimulus for many nations around the world as sales increase dramatically in almost all retail areas. The United States’ retail industry generated over three trillion U.S. dollars during the holidays in 2013.
Again Easter celebrations, an ancient European traditional festival of fertility, adopted by the church, exported to the world and has been heavily monetised. The National Retail Federation estimates that in America alone, consumers collectively spent $17.3 billion on clothing, food, decorations, and other holiday items on Easter 2017, up from $16.4 billion the year before. $2.4 billion strictly on candy for the holiday, up from an estimated $2.2 billion last Easter.
What about Olympic Games? The ancient games were also a religious festival, held in honour of Zeus, the Greek king of the gods.
It was a French man Baron Pierre de Coubertin who founded the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in 1894, leading to the first modern Games in Athens in 1896. Today both Christians, Muslims, atheists and non religious are all participants in the ancient traditional and religious festival of the Greeks. Generating billions of dollars wherever it is hosted.
My dear African Christians, Muslims and atheists, when you hear me preach and promote our African traditions, festivals and cultural practices, don’t only think about spirituality, don’t only think about religiosity, think about money, think about revenue generation, think about tourism.
To my Igbo people, think about what we can do with our Mmanwu festival celebration (Masquerade festivals). Think about what we can do with our Iri ji festivals (New yam festival celebration). We have amazing traditional festivals all across Igbo land. Just imagine if the five eastern Igbo states come together to establish a four days of Mmanwu and iri ji festivals across the five states simultaneously. Just think about the revenue that will be generated from transportation, high demand and consumption of yam, kola nut, Palm wine and other drinks. Think about the tourist attraction. Think about the money hospitality industry in the states will make, hotels, brothels, joints etc.
You don’t have to accept them for their spiritual and religious value, but think about their economic, commercial and tourism values.
Make me a commissioner of culture and tourism Imo State. And watch me give my people lemonade from our despised lemon.
Make me the commissioner of culture and tourism Imo State and watch me turn my passion into business and greatly monetise some of our great traditions and cultural heritage.
My people, think tradition and culture, think money and tourism. Not only spirituality.

When German goldsmith Johannes Gutenberg invented movable-type printing machine around 1436 (although he was far from the first to automate the book-printing process). Little did he know what a revolutionary invention he has gifted the world and Europe in particular.
In the 15th century, the innovation enabled people to share knowledge more quickly and widely. The printing press was the invention of the century, and radically changed how ideas and thoughts were shared. Books, pamphlets, and documents of all types could be printed and distributed all throughout Europe; leading to a mass spread of knowledge and communication – ultimately pushing the scientific enlightenment. Printing press drastically changed the way society evolved. It had dramatic effects on European civilization. Its immediate effect was that it spread information quickly and accurately. This helped create a wider literate reading public. It caused new ideas, thoughts, and doctrine to be made available to the public in ways that had never been seen before the sixteenth century.
The printing revolution also contributed mightily to the Protestant Reformation that split apart the Catholic Church. Recorded history had it that, it was on the 31st October 1517 that Martin Luther defiantly nailed a copy of his 95 Theses to the door of the Wittenberg Castle church. Printing press helped Luther´s opinions and disagreement to spread around, this way people would be informed about reality. His followers also started disagreeing with the teachings of the Catholic Church, so a protest started.
With the invention of #internet #Social_Media and #Smart_Phones, the sociocultural, sociopolitical and religious dynamics in our societies can never remain the same.
Ten years ago in our African societies, these fraudsters, scammers and actors called pastors would’ve got away with this movie and play acting called miracle. They hired the woman, and used her condition to deceive and brainwash the gullible and unsuspecting masses, then go ahead and defraud them.
The church is not under any attack, the church is being found out and called out. The truth is, Nigeria and Africa will never see pastors at the calibre of Oyedepo, Adeboye, Oyakhilome, TB Joshua, Suleman Etc again, that era is over, people know better today and have the facilities to expose the tricks, deception and lies.
What Printing press did to Europe in 15th century, is what internet, social media and smart phones are doing and going to do to Nigeria and Africa. End of dark ages and usher in renaissance age, the Age of Enlightenment, the age of reason.
The printing press almost immediately change culture, politics, beliefs and religious practices in Europe and Germany in particular. Today internet, social media and smart phones are doing exactly same thing in Africa and Nigeria in particular.
Wake up my fellow Africans, no miracle can build our societies for us, no Jesus is coming to take us to any beautiful city in the sky. Only us can build our society, only us can develop beautiful cities here on the continent of Africa. Only us, by us and for us.
Africa is rising again ✊🏿✊🏿✊🏿✊🏿

LWKMH (Laugh want kill me here) So the worst performing state on education Zamfara State Government has launched an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the situation where some pages of the Qur’an were found in the sewage in a primary school on Friday.
led to the immediate closure of the school and the indefinite suspension of the teachers on the orders of the state governor, Bello Matawalle.
The government promised to reward anyone with useful information about those involved in the act with two million naira.
Security agents from various security agencies have been deployed to monitor people’s movements and arrest anyone found attempting to abuse the holy book in any form.
“Similarly, the state government appeals to the citizenry to continue to pray for Allah’s intervention in exposing all those behind these acts of desecrating our Holy Book,’ the government said.
Nigerians who bewitched you?
You close down school, offer 2 million naira to catch “a student or teacher that wiped his or her ass with passages of a religious book.
If such energy is transferred towards catching bandits and terrorists plaguing you state instead of taking photo ops with them your state would be very peaceful, and would save the nation billions on aid and security.
I remember making a post sometime in August I tagged #AtikuIsNotComing.
I hope my fellow Atiku friends and PDP sympathisers will finally come to terms with reality.
I hope we can all move on now and start playing the normal opposition role. We need to start putting pressure on the current administration to reform the electoral laws that is currently a waste of time and money.
