he tweeted,

“Nigerians are afraid of Yemoja but love the little mermaid. They say Sango is evil, but Thor is their hero. They love Storm but want nothing to do with Oya. They are in love with Aquaman but hate Olokun, who we were indoctrinated with, hate ourselves and love our enslavers.”

“Lmao, I’ve never seen Yemoja or Sango before and the stories I’ve heard about them weren’t pretty. Please tell me why I shouldn’t prefer Thor and Co?

Ehn Nigerians should also go and make a film that portrays the gods in an appealing way, just maybe we’ll talk more about them.”

“Lol… it’s the way they’re portrayed, na.

If they are painted to be good and philanthropic, we will have no problem loving them. Nollywood doesn’t help with those creepy scenes either. Well just Awo people dey pretty small.

However, Women of Owu was an epic drama.”

“Olokun, wen no get joy?! Which Nigerian deity is actually portrayed as good?! Well, wickedness fills their ways. Abeg o”

@olii_baby wrote,

“These characters were portrayed as heroes fighting evil with good. Last time I checked them, they used Sango Curse Person Papa.”
