Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie has recounted how nobody celebrated his life when he survived a ghastly accident earlier this year.
Speaking on how people express fake love towards one another, Edochie said if he had not survived the accident, some would have turned up to celebrate his life after death.
According to him, some will go as far as choosing a dress code while one person might even volunteer to buy an expensive casket for his burial.
Edochie wrote “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.”
