Nigerian Hip Hop artiste, Emeka Akumefule better known as Blaqbonez, has said that following religion will not guarantee anyone a place in paradise.
He stated this via microblogging site, Twitter, noting that if there is indeed an afterlife, what will save humans is being good to others.
According to Blaqbonez in the grand scheme of things nobody really cares if someone reads religious books every day or doesn’t miss Sunday service if they are bad person(s).
The artiste wrote; “If there’s indeed an afterlife, following any religion isn’t going to save you, being good to people, especially those u don’t have to would be the difference, nobody cares that u read a book every morning and don’t miss Sunday services if you’re an asshole.”
Blaq’s theological opinion generated massive reactions online as fans argued in favour and against what he said.

@Chimaforkeeps commented; “I say God but I don’t believe in religion ,I know there’s a higher power but they twistin’ the teachin’ I just focus on been good to the next man”
@mister_ade5; Most people who go to these holy houses on chosen days are the biggest assholes. They limit themselves and fail to see the world as it is then judging it like they are the only ones who’d seen it all is outrageous.
@ezekiel_aleke; One mf actually told me I am “lost” and stopped being my friend because I don’t go to church😂 Na Konji cause that rubbish sha😅
@bigSmileLee_; People desperately want to believe in an afterlife due to greed/cowardice but the idea of beforelife is absurd. People are strange.
@theonlytobe1; Don’t throw the baby with the bath water.There’s an afterlife,and while being good to people at all times is a good thing,it’s never going to make you go tothe right place in the after life.I can’t say because I do good I can enter your house without following the rules to get in
@yannisante3; When you think you know too much. Believing in Jesus Christ is the only way to eternal life, for all your good deeds without believing in him are worthless. Read your Bible, please🙏 let no man mislead you.
@HarrySwitch; The truth is anyone can be ‘Good’ to people, even a ritualist can care and love people around him, what sets you apart after death is knowing Jesus. On our own we can never be good enough.
@zinojagoo; The Bible says God is the way, the truth and the light, so therefore to see heaven you HAVE to follow God, cause He’s the way. Also, if you genuinely seek and follow God, you naturally develop traits and a mentality that pleases God.
