Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie has taken to his social media page to condemn the habit of celebrating people when they are dead.
KanyiDaily recalls that back in June, Yul Edochie miraculously escaped death in a ghastly motor accident while en route to the southeastern part of the country.
A few months later, the 37-year-old movie star took to his Twitter page to lament that no one came to celebrate him after he survived a car accident even though the reverse would have been the case should he have died.
According to him, people would voluntarily buy a casket worth N10 million for his burial and turn up in Asoebi to celebrate him if he had died.
He charged Nigerians to learn how to celebrate life and not wait until someone dies to do so. He wrote:
“I survived a terrible accident and nobody came to celebrate my life. If I had died, many asoebi groups would turn up to celebrate. Fake love everywhere, someone will even choose to buy a 10 million naira casket to bury me. We must change the way we reason as a people.”
I survived a terrible accident & nobody came to celebrate my life.
If I had died many asoebi groups would turn up to celebrate my life, fake love everywhere, someone will even choose to buy a 10million naira casket to bury me.
We must change the way we reason as a people.
