Chris Omashola, a religious socio-political evangelist, has sparked a flurry of reactions on social media platforms after he called Naira Marley, Nigerian musician, a “demon”.

The pastor had taken to his Twitter page on Tuesday to share a series of prophecies concerning Nigeria, including his acclaimed revelation from God that Marley “is satanic and should repent before it’s too late.”

He added that the singer’s songs are demonically inspired to destroy the destiny of the youths.

“In 2020, God told me, Naira Marley is A Demon, He is Satanic and should repent before it’s too late. His songs are demonically inspired to destroy the Destiny of The Youths of this generation, Nigerian youths should desist from calling themselves Marlians,” he wrote.

Omashola, who is the pastor of Zionwealth Church, Lekki, Lagos, had in 2018 made headlines over a viral sex tape involving him and Tamaratokoni Okpewho, his lover who happens to be his church member.

But in reaction to his prophecies, some fans of Marley, better known as “Marlians”, took to the microblogging platform to call out Omashola over his claims and reminded him of the sex tape scandal.

“To all Naira Marley fans aka Marlian Please what’s your final judgment on this #NairaMarley and Apostle Chris Omashola case,” Uncle Gabriel wrote.

The post attracted the attention of the street singer who retweeted the user’s opinion.
