I was scrolling down my newsfeed on facebook earlier on this evening when I came across this facebook page called "God save Octopizzo and other Kenyan artists from Illuminatti." The page claimed that the popular Rap artists wardrobe symbols confirm his association with the said secret society; "...#octopizzo# more evidence to this illuminate allegation is the fact that his clothing wear specifically the Snap-backs which are written ‘Octopizzo’ at the front and ‘Number Nane’ at the back also have a triangle inscribed inside a circle and this is a mark commonly used by the illuminate…"
Now this was not the first time I am hearing a Kenyan artist being linked to Illuminati, I remember once going to get movies from one Andie Bigmitch of Bubblegum Movie Palour and I asked him if he had some song from a popular Kenyan gospel artist and he claimed he does not listen to his songs "because he is illuminati."
Whole over the world several artists and celebrities such as Jay-Z, Beyonce, Rihana, Chris Brown, Anjelina Jolie and so many more have been linked to the secret society. In Jay-Z's case her daughters name caused controversy in the social media after Katt Williams Parody claimed that the name had Illuminati connotations, "I.V.Y. = Illuminati's Very Youngest B.L.U.E. = Born Living Under Evil. Blue Ivy spelt backwords (Eulb Yvi) = Latin for "Lucifers Daughter", he claimed.
Now what really is Illuminati, and where did it start from? Famous novelist Dan Brown depicts Illuminati as a group of secret rulers who pull the strings of the world from behind the scenes in his book the "Lost Symbol." According to wikipedia this group started in 1776 as a group of secret elites who were then known as the "Bavarian Illuminatti." The word Illuminati is a Latin word that is translated to mean "the enlightened."
In its early years the group belonged to a few elites that comprised to business leaders, scientists and renown artist such as Galileo who was also a mathematician. These group was however in their early years of expansion infiltrated by the Freemasons society and in most cases used their Masonic Lodges to hold their meetings.
Infiltration being the most known method the Masons use to expand their influence, they managed to infiltrate the organization to such an extent that it is impossible to talk about Illuminati without linking it to the Masons. This infiltration has even seen several Masonic signs now adopted by the Illuminati appearing in currencies and several public buildings such as the Kenyan parliament.
Havard Symbologist Dr. Hugh Janus, who explained that this group is known as the Illuminati, is so named because they Illuminate and rule the world in anonymity. But how do they stay so far under the radar? Apparently, the Illuminati are able to dictate world affairs though the use of a complex series of messages that are hidden all around us.
The Kenyan theory
So is it true that several Kenyan celebrities are members of the Illuminati or are Masons? Well that is a question I cannot answer but based on the above description of the illuminati infiltration tendencies adopted from the Masons just anybody could be Illuminati. They control our world through politics, businesses (economies)and even entertainment.
It is however worrying that a lot of Kenyans are associating all manner of success with affiliation to Illuminati as several top performers such as Titus Naikuni (CEO KQ), Janet Mbugua (Citizen Tv), CMB Prezzo, Nonini, Madtraxx and Victor Mugubi among others have been linked to the society maybe purely because of their success in respective industries.
For nine things you need to know about Illuminatti so that you don't sound stupid next time click here.
My Opinion: Illuminati existed in the 18th Century, It was a secret society of elitists who wanted to rule the world through controlling politics, business, religion and arts. The society disintegrated in the early years of the 19th Century.
Today Illuminati exist as an urban myth. It really doesn't exist.
The Freemasons have for a long time been associated with devil worshiping. Today they are being linked with Illuminati. That is not true. Freemasonry does not involve any form of worship. Members of Freemason must however be people who believe in a "supreme" being - it doesn't matter which one.
Freemasons do not offer blood sacrifices.
