My single, Toxic Religion is my response to the happenings in and around Nigeria and how I think it has affected us.
I don’t need to go far. The drama with Timi, the El-zakky issue, Boko Haram, etc. I won’t even mention what Yahoo boys do now in the name of wealth. Religion that was meant to show the way to peace and love has now become toxic, and it’s absolutely sad to watch. I listen to pastors and imams alike with a skepticism that I didn’t have before, and I’d rather stay home and play Shadow Fight 3 than go to church. How did we get here?
Hopefully this song is the first step in the healing we need.

They speak to us in flowered words
They walk on water, can do no wrong
I’m wide awake but seems I’m sleeping
You & me, we’ve all been taken.
Brainwashed, sleep walking
Zombies, no limits
They are everywhere..
Toxic, toxic, toxic Religion
Free your, free your mind, it’s poison
It’s like we can’t get enough
We de torture ourselves even more
It’s the name of the game
“Let us put them in flames”
Machetes & hijabs
Miracles and fast cars
Gucci and fine shoes
Free your mind, free your mind
No let them push you behind
It’s a flaming volcano……
We’ve been walking blind and we don’t know it
We’re the slaves of our own making
Men like us but we made them king…
Last last nobody holy pass
Men like us but we made them our king.
Last last nobody holy pass..
