0

Concerned traditionalist condemns the common depiction of African idols and gods as evil by moviemakers as it leaves a bad impression on cultural beliefs.

According to a Twitter user identified as IfaFunsho @funshographix, it remains a ‘mental colonialism’ that even African producers follow suit and at some point in time, this notion is 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.”
