Reno Omokri said most black people are racists against themselves, “which is why they believe African Masquerades are bad but Santa Claus is good, and think a white wedding is holy, but your traditional wedding is just a formality (both are traditional).”
The former president Goodluck Ebele Jonathan’s aide made the statement on his social media account and attracted the attention of a social media user, @MaziJosh20, who commented, “Maybe because of the evil practices behind some African Masquerades. Those practices are evil.”
Omokri reacted almost immediately: “Dear @MaziJosh20, Let me prove to you how inferiority complexed you are. Have you ever seen these evil practices WITH YOUR OWN EYES? Meanwhile, what is the origin of Santa Claus that you celebrate? It stems from paganism. Is paganism a good thing?
“Africans just swallow what colonialists sold them as Christianity. Why is your African masquerade evil but Santa Claus is good? Where do you see Santa Claus in Scripture? Rearrange Santa. You get satan.
“Rearrange Claus. You get Lucas. Google Lucas. The word means light. The word Ferre means bearer. Lucifer is actually short for Lucas Ferre, meaning light-bearer because satan was originally an angel of light.”
