WILLY PAUL and SIZE 8 skinned alive by NYAKUNDI after releasing garbage music (Must Read)Editor's Choice, Entertainment News, Gossip and Drama 06:36
As you may have all figured out by now, 8-4-4 criminalised exceptionalism in any form. The fusion of religion into education has been globally linked to the growing strain of anti-intellectualism in the country. Countries that have completely eradicated religion from their educational curriculums, have leaped on all fronts.
The countries in the far-east are a shining example. As 10-year old students here recite Bible verses, Japanese children are assembling computers. Which is the reason why I won’t consider Fred Matiang’i as a genius because he’s just an institutional-fucker who’s playing to the gallery of mediocrity. Not unless he demolishes 8-4-4 and completely removes religious studies from the curriculum, we aren’t going to make any headway as a nation.
Teachers who were mostly low self-esteemed individuals from rural backgrounds, criminalised co-curricular excellence and secularism in these 8-4-4 schools was mostly regarded as “Devil Worshipping” . These are teachers who have been raised watching Nigerian movies, and believe every sort of stupidity contained therein. If a student pierced their ears, or danced exceptionally, he was publicly shamed by the mediocre teachers as a Devil Worshipper.

Slowly, we started seeing morning Gospel TV shows being hosted live from High Schools, in collaboration with the mediocre mainstream media stations like Citizen and NTV.
Those pathetic rural-bred Gospel hosts like DJ Soxxy, Njugush, who when they open their mouths, one would easily tell that they have nothing in-between their ears, inspired a new generation of “Gospel” musicians like Willy Paul and Size 8.
The content of Gospel music went from bad to worse, with the release of pathetic songs like “Asusu” , “Itakuwa Ngori” “System ya Kapungala” “Mwikulu” “Mateke” “Furi Furi” and the likes started getting unlimited airplay. The music was then accepted in high-schools, conditioning the strain of mediocrity and anti-intellectualism in students, who just had no choice but listen to that crap.
Intellectual Gospel artists like…
