Nigerian rapper, Lynxxx has marked yesterday as the 4th anniversary from when he left the ways of the world and gave his life to Christ.
The rapper, real name Chukie Edozien, took to his Instagram to share the news with a post followed by the short caption: ‘7.8.15 My 2nd Birthday. Can’t Believe its been 4years already’.
Lynxxx shocked Nigerians in 2015 when he started putting up posts that alluded to his faith on his Instagram and many didn’t believe it until he put a followup post where he explicitly announced that he was now born again.
“So I woke up to this message this morning. Instagram removed my post from yesterday (Obviously bcos some people must have flagged and reported it)” he wrote
“Here’s the thing about the “Truth” …. No matter how u take it, it DOESN’T change so I guess the mirror reflection was a bit too bright for some….
“Oh well, shout out to everyone that saw it and left a comment / tagged friends, Liked or Shared it (Most pple that reposted it STILL have it up so i guess d ‘Violation’ was only from my page ????…) THANK YOU all who took time to read that post, the response was OVERWHELMING ????????????
“I hope it resonated with you one way or the other, may God continue to strengthen us through our journey to live in His Will and obey him. Truth would always be the Truth… U can report my posts but u can’t silence this vessel!”
Lynxxx is pretty liberal in his faith which has led him to make some statements that some might find controversial like in an interview with Punch, he said that he saw no problems with a Christian drinking in moderation.
“It is not a sin to drink (alcohol). What was Jesus’ first miracle in the Bible? He turned water to wine. I still hang out with my old friends in the entertainment industry.” he said in that interview.
We are glad that Lynxxx continues to walk his path and we wish him all the best.
