BBNaija Star Doyin Sparks Debate Over Religious Practices in Nigeria

Controversial Big Brother Naija star Doyinsola Anuoluwapo David, popularly known as Doyin, has stirred up discussions with her candid views on religious programmes in Nigeria.

Doyin recently shared her opinions on Snapchat, expressing skepticism towards the effectiveness of such religious activities. Responding to a fan’s query about her absence from online religious events, she stated, “I get a lot of those hallelujah challenge and what God cannot do doesn’t exist tags. People keep sending them to me but I just don’t believe in that type of stuff so I never join. It’s not bad… I just don’t believe in it.”

She elaborated further, questioning the nation’s heavy reliance on prayer over practical action. “If it were really by ‘hallelujah challenge’ and ‘what God cannot do’….. Nigeria should be one of the greatest countries by now. We spend too much time praying and shouting hallelujah instead of actually working and being actual good human beings.”

Doyin criticized the inconsistency she perceives in the behavior of many who participate in these religious events. “They will shout hallelujah finish and go back to cheating the next person they encounter or judging someone because the person presents themselves differently,” she noted.

She emphasized the importance of personal improvement and ethical behavior, saying, “To me, it’s just a complete waste of time but to each his own. If you believe in it then by all means. At the end of the day, all that should matter is having a good relationship with God and being a good human being. If you like, shout hallelujah from now till next year. If you don’t find ways to improve yourself and provide value….you’ll keep shouting hallelujah in hunger.
