Nigerian rapper, Michael Ugochukwu Stephens, popularly known as Ruggedman has caused uproar on Instagram after he shared a photo of Jesus Christ on Instagram.
In the post, Ruggedman shared a photo of Robert Powell as Jesus Christ and thanked God in his caption.
According to some Nigerians on Instagram who were offended, the post indirectly means that the rapper was giving thanks to Robert Powell because the photo is not really a portrait of Jesus Christ.
They expressed that it is wrong for the rapper to put up an actor’s photo and thank the lord Jesus Christ in the caption.
Ruggedman, however, rejected their opinions, saying that what he did was harmless since no one in the world has the photo of Jesus Christ.
He expressed that if anyone can give him Jesus Christ’s photo he would willingly accept whatever objections they have.
