Yup you read it right, our favorite music group Mo’ Hits were called cultists. But that isn’t even the shocking part! The shocking part is that it appeared in a school textbook.
Well, according to a Nigerian textbook, the Mo’ Hits crew are examples of cultists – the author conveniently shared their pictures in the discussion about how education prevents crime.
Twitter user, @Nu_Chella, shared a photograph of her sisters textbook. She was shocked seeing it after her attention was called to it. She wrote,
“So my little sister saw this in her text book and asked me if Donjazzy and Wande coal are/were cultists. It’s either she wouldn’t believe text books or…
Of course, you’re wondering how that could even be true but we aren’t kidding. Here’s the picture as proof:
The picture is from a JS1 textbook titled, “Current Religion And National Values”. However, it is very misleading because the Mo’ Hits crew were really just a group of singers who had come together to make music. It had respected artists like Wande Coal, D’Banj and Don Jazzy in it – which is where they first gained popularity. This post perpetuates the old and tired stereotypes that men who dress a certain way are criminals or cultists.
Well, it’s kind of awkward that an educational book for children contains misleading content – maybe do better research next time?
What do you think about it? How do you think the old members of Mo’ Hits will react?
