Religion is no doubt very prevalent in Nigeria as the average citizen holds their beliefs very dear to their hearts and do not even mind coming off as offensive to those they consider as unbelievers.
Well, young comedian, Gloria ‘Maraji’ Oloruntobi, recently took to her Instagram page to preach her religion, Christianity, and a number of internet users have not taken kindly to it as majority of them termed it distasteful.
In a post shared on her Instastory, Maraji explained that Jesus is the only way to heaven, not even Allah, Buddha, Krishna or evolution.
See a screenshot of her post below:
A number of people seemed to find the post distasteful and insensitive considering that it was posted during the Muslim festive period, the Eid-el-kabir holiday.
A fan even reached out to the comedian to express her displeasure to which Maraji explained that the truth is quite offensive.
See their exchange below:
Well, several Nigerians on social media have shared their opinions on the issue. While some people are calling for her head, others see nothing wrong with her action.

I woke up to the most interesting thing have seen on Twitter since I joined☺… Maraji just said what many Christians have been shying away from. All she said is just the 100% truth and it doesn't mean she has hatred for the Muslims…make una free her jare#maraji pic.twitter.com/d7RXhN7wNU

#Maraji is cancelled because she posted what she believes? Am not surprised that this Generation is full of politically correct Christians who thinks pleasing the muslims will stop them from being called "Kafri banza". pic.twitter.com/rPDqosYq2A
