Reactions as masquerade shows off dancing skills inside church

By Our Correspondent

A video of a masquerade dancing inside a Catholic Church has been causing debate on social media.

In the video, the masquerade is seen dancing while the church members as well as the officiating priests cheered him on.

While some Nigerians see nothing wrong in the video, others are of the opinion that it is wrong to bring in a masquerade into God’s house.

@ Stella Erickson Kalu: “Masquerade in the church? Mtchhee, ehhh, it’s not good. In my own understanding of Christianity, masquerade has a spirit behind it. And even anyone engaging in it or maybe later denounce the group goes for deliverance later.”

@ Elizabeth Osodi wrote: “There is absolutely nothing wrong with it. What is the difference between Satan Claus abi na Father Christmas with that masquerade there? Africans and over spirituality.”

@ Agim Chibueze Chisco said: “Nothing is wrong with it, it’s just a cultural day celebration. Please don’t allow those who religion has made become foolish, everything in their eyes is now evil.”

@ Anibire Abiodun Temitope: “He came to repent, he just gave his life.”
