Nigerians agree with Kemen
A lot of people found sense in the reality star's statement, read some comments gathered below:
"While this is true, it is also important to make sure that one doesn't juxtapose life and death situations and emotions. The living should feel some if not all the love and "respect" they are accorded when they can no longer appreciate it at death."
"And fact for me."
"At last! Someone sensible has made sense. So stop judging people who decide to pay their last respects to the Dead!"
"So long you are a popular person . Massive posthumous mourning and repost is only natural. It is well."
