Nana Richard Abiona, best known in the music industry as Fuse ODG, Ghanaian-British Afrobeats recording artist and philanthropist, has challenged Africans to rethink their religious upbringing.
This was in response to claims that the “Badder Than Bad” singer set fire to some flames thought to be an image of Jesus Christ and a book believed to be the Holy Bible a few months ago when some footage went viral on the internet and social media.
Fuse ODG said that he never burned an image of Jesus Christ, but rather one of a white guy impersonating Jesus. He said that when white people came to Africa, they distorted many aspects of religion, particularly Christianity.
The ‘Million Pound Baby’ singer stated that after doing some study, he concluded that Africans need to start questioning how we were spiritually trained since some things don’t look or feel right.
The artist continued, speaking with Andy Dosty this morning on Hitz FM’s “Day Break Hitz” morning show, that the picture of Jesus Christ that most Africans worship was purposefully provided to them by the white man.
He claimed that the statues were not a real depiction of Jesus Christ and that he felt compelled to tear them down since they were merely a portrait of an actor who played Jesus in a movie.
