A video of Evangelist Funmi Adebayo aka Mummy Go, a controversial Nigerian clergywoman, declaring that saying “Hello” is a sin has gone viral online.
Mummy GO, who runs the Rapture Proclaimer Evangelical Church of God (RAPEC) in the Iyana Ipaja area of Lagos, recently preached in her church that if the o from Hello is removed, it becomes Hell, and thus it is a language of sin.
”A bishop from Ghana was arguing with me. He said Evangelist Funmi, we are listening to your message but don’t say nonsense. Don’t teach us wrong things. I said what is the wrong thing that I taught.
He said ‘you said if somebody said Hello, it is demonic. It is not good’. I said yes sair I said so. I never denied it.
By the time you remove o from Hello, what remains? Hell! So I greet you in the morning or you call me and I just mention Hell! It is a language of hell, a slogan of hell.”
