Celebrate people when they are alive, not when they are dead – Yul Edochie – ohamsgist/titleonly


Nollywood actor and politician Yul Edochie has blasted the concept of extravagant burial ceremonies, saying that spending much on it is meaningless.

He pointed out how family members are made to acquire huge debts on the course of having a lavish ceremony. He said that people should be celebrated when they are alive, not when they are dead.

He wrote:
I don’t understand the concept of spending so much money on burials. Total waste to me! A person’s life should be celebrated when he or she is alive to join in the celebration not in death. Some1 once asked me for a loan of some millions to use & bury his father. I was speechless.

“Celebrate people when they are alive make dem follow enjoy the groove. Some family members will not even assist you when you need financial help, till the person dies, then they’ll budget 20million naira for your burial, invite all their friends from abroad and all the dignitaries they know just to show off.
