Netizens react to viral video

The X user’s complaint about the portrayal of an angel in the Anikulapo series soon caught the attention of many Nigerians after the video went viral. Some of them argued that the person who played the role of an angel wasn’t a white man.

Read some of their comments below:


“When did albino with dada become white?”


“Y’all please rest, he is a black albino. Albino’s are believed to be special creatures. This same movie had a scene for trees that are alive and different creatures. ART is what it’s called.”


“He’s black albino, yes I agree. But the production used him to give the ideology that he’s a white God. Stop pretending y’all.”


“Albino is ara orun, not a white God. If you don’t know ijinle Yoruba, please don’t be fast to criticize.”


“If dem use black angel una go say na devil brother .”


“He’s black ! Black is a race and not a skin color!!!!! Educate yourselves.”


“It’s not about racism it’s just the belief we African Christians grew up with , everyone believes that angels are white.”


“When you produce your own movie! Use @verydarkblackman ”


“Oyinbo don tell una say black na Devil while white na angel, soon all of una go get sense even in church they use black as devil while white as angel.”


“What if that’s the best cast fit for the role.”
