Only Africans can attach so much meaning to a simple tv show that it would take over their entire lives and leave them living in fear of the devil.
Some Nigerian Twitter users have been left sh!tting their pants in fear after watching the show which just ended its fourth season run.
As we reported earlier, Nigerian actress Stella Damasus tweeted that the show is demonic and a way to win souls for the devil. Her post was in response to one by a Twitter user known as Joshua Mike-Bamiloye, who laid out his reasons why he thinks Lucifer is a satanic show.
He wrote: “There’s a show Called LUCIFER Azin the devil o lol And you, Knowing how captivating foreign series can be, You still watch. Now you LOVE the character; Lucifer, Like Jack Bauer. And somehow you think, the devil isn’t winning your soul over…”
His post managed to bring out many Nigerians to confess their mortal fear of the show and what it can do to their soul if they watch it. One user even claimed just watching the show had filled her room with darkness and dread – talk about being unnecessarily dramatic!
Africans somehow think watching Lucifer, or as someone else argued recently, Game of Thrones, can corrupt your soul and send you to hell. If the state Ghana and Nigeria are currently in isn’t hell, then I don’t know what is.
It’s legitimately sad that the youth who are the supposed future leaders of this continent are the ones who have such backwards mentalities about how the world works. It just shows there’s no hope for a future renaissance for this continent.
There’s a show
Azin the devil o lol
Knowing how captivating foreign series can be,
You still watch.
Now you LOVE the character; Lucifer,
Like Jack Bauer.
And somehow you think,
the devil isn’t winning your soul over…

1st time I accidentally watched the show, the whole room felt dark I became uncomfortable and left the room till I later came back and asked for the show to be changed. The devil is not even subtle anymore…

This tweet really exposes how bad things have gotten. Satan is far more smarter than we think. It’s not just sitting around waiting for rapture to happen. He’s turning as many hearts as he can to himself using MOSTLY the media. It’s the easiest most subtle way for him.

Not everybody can change the channel like you sir…. I started watching the series with my friend… I could not finish season one but my friend is strictly following the movie…and its evident he loves the character… The devil is not a fool, he's cunning.

I actually watched season 1 and although a very humourous and suave character was used, I'm smarter than to swallow it hook line and sinker and pretend it's not actually a "Satanist" movie. Anyone that has read up on Satanism wouldn't be fooled. But my people don't read.

The devil is moving and we Christians are feeling relaxed hiding behind "it's not that deep" and laughing at religion. No wahala. When you go through a tough situation and find your mind considering going against God I hop it's not too late for you.
