Nigerian Twitter went into a frenzy after a video of a female preacher telling her congregation that they would not go to heaven if they continue eating “Titus fish” or taking vitamin C, surfaced online.
“If you continue taking Vitamin C, bet it, you can’t make it, how can you make heaven? Unless you go and stop it and do your deliverance,” she was heard saying.
“Is it not ascorbic acid? Ascorbic acid is not produced anywhere on earth. Ascorbic acid comes directly from the deep sea. Some of you still enjoy Titus fish.
“You can’t make heaven while you are still eating Titus fish. You can’t make heaven while you’re eating Titus fish also. You must go for deliverance.”
She just insulted my 4 years of Biochemistry with this claim that Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) is only produced in the deep sea. I no kuku like Titus before so I'll just let that one slide. 🤣🤣🤣 pic.twitter.com/Hmg2aApHSn

The social media user who shared the video did not provide the name of the preacher or the location of her church. From her dressing and Yoruba language, she appears to belong to one of the African traditional worship churches.
Despite the many health benefits of vitamin C and Titus fish, the prophetess told her congregation to shun them over a belief that they are reportedly associated with evil.
Below are the many reactions over her comments shared on Twitter.
BLASPHEMY… Jesus didn't share Titus he shared Mackarel, the fish became evil when Nigerians changed the name to Titus. The woman is right so stop eating Titus. God knows I want to see you in Heaven.
