Boity Thulo is trending on social media after she made tweets about the Bible and Christianity.
Her tweet caused a lot of chaos and has split Mzansi social media users.
The Ba Kae rapper said that her reason for not believing in the bible was the lack of representation of women and how it does not resonate with her journey.
“Lol! The Bible is the epitome of patriarchy. Thoroughly.”
“Lack of female voices and representation especially in the Bible. Also, the journey didn’t fill up the void in my soul the way I was brought up to believe it would,” she tweeted.
She also pointed out how she had studied the bible and the whole religion thoroughly and still felt it was biased towards women.
“You telling me that book was a record of years of people’s Holy encounters and they barely got 10 nyana WOMEN to talk about their moments with Jesus? Gurl, bye,” she wrote.
Boity had received her calling as a traditional healer and had said in numerous interviews how she still attends church as well as practice as a sangoma.
She stated her stance on Christianity has changed and her fans who are religious people called her out on her beliefs.
“Look man, I’ve gone through the religious journey. Went to church. I read the book. Found little to no form of representation in there. Not race, barely gender, not a name, not much. I was left with more questions than connection. And then I found my way. Each to their own,” she closed the debate.

SibusisoSibiy12 said: “Knowing the Bible is a personal experience, same as knowing God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. We do not have abilities to change how people think and behave but we can influence, do not try to disagree with Boity, that will not help, but be a reflection of what you believe in.”
