Just recently, many social media users were left in shock when a photo off the page of a Nigerian textbook surfaced online.
The photo was shared by Twitter user identified as Nu_Chella, where defunct, one-time huge Nigerian singing groups, Mohits were portrayed as cultists.
The throwback photo of the group was plastered on a page in the textbook with the author describing Don Jazzy, Wande Coal, D’banj, D Prince and the rest of the members as cultists. Although a bit hilarious, the libelous nature of such depiction of entertainers is appalling. Many social media users didn’t hesitate to express their disappointment in such misleading photo that is now being ingested by unsuspecting students across the country.
Ordinarily, the photo went viral, giving that the said ‘cultists’ have played a major role in paving the way for many young musicians in Nigeria. Although none of the singing group have said anything about it, most Nigerians share the view that the author of the textbook should be found and sued.
