In Africa, particularly in Nigeria, a lot of importance is placed on the opinions people have about a family or what people would say about a family based on their actions.
For this reason, many Nigerian families have been known to always want to put up an appearance of wealth or high taste, even when they cannot afford it.
It is no longer strange to see people throwing big and lavish burial ceremonies after the passing of a loved one. This would have been no big deal if so much attention was paid to the deceased during their lifetime.
Many families would rather ignore their old ones until they die. Then they turn up in droves to celebrate the live they had lived.
Just recently, Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie, took to Twitter to share his opinion on such lavish burials. According to him, it is a total waste of money. He said person’s life should be celebrated when he or she is alive to join in the celebration not in death.
