Nigerian rapper, Tochukwu Ojogwu, better known as Odumodublvck has strongly denounced the ongoing social media backlash targeting the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye.
On Sunday, Adeboye came under heavy fire on social media after he was reported to have said Nigeria’s problems are spiritual. He also received backlash after a 2019 video resurfaced where he recounted a story of how he shared tea with God during breakfast.
In response to the criticism directed at the RCCG leader, Odumodublvck pointed out that Muslims generally do not insult their clerics in the manner that Christians sometimes do.
Odumodublvck emphasized that Adeboye deserves respect from Christian youths, especially considering his age and stature within the faith community.
On his X page, he tweeted
“Pastor Adeboye never insulted no one on this app.
“You do not see Muslims come out to insult their clerics. Then later we complain that our religion is being stepped on.
“Even based on age wise, una no fit follow una papa talk the way una dey follow Adeboye talk. And he senior una papa and mama.
“That’s why I never rated you n*ggas on this app. Una double standards choke.”
However, his statement sparked a flurry of reactions from social media users, who criticized him for unquestioningly accepting the preacher’s statements.
