Popular Nigerian actress, Chioma Toplis has noted that she will not attend her father’s burial when he passes on.
Chioma stated this while reacting to a post by a lady identified as Jayritse on Twitter.
The lady’s post reads, “My father was an elder in the church, a proper elder. That was at church. At home, he was a wife-beater. He once beat my mom with a wooden plank with nails, and tore her arm too, with blood and all.
“He died nine years ago. I still haven’t cried. Thanks, everyone, she left him before he passed on. She’s thriving now.”
The actress while reacting to the post of the lady said her father was also an elder in a church, adding that her mother left him because he was lazy, lousy, senseless and foolish.
Chioma wrote, “I thought we were the only ones that have a useless father. He is an elder in the church too. We are in the same boat; my mother left my father too for many reasons ranging from laziness, lousiness, cheating, senselessness, foolishness, beating; in fact, (he is) everything bad.
“Do you know what? She is the WINNER for leaving alive. I grew up wondering what the hell made my mother marry such an awful man.
“I won’t even attend his burial even if I am in Nigeria, talk more of crying. The most interesting part is none of my siblings will either, except my brother, the first son, just to fulfil the native and custom law.”
She further stated that when her father eventually dies, his burial will be nothing to write home about.
“Yes, he will (definitely) die before us because he came to this world before us! His burial will be nothing to write home about. Just open the ground and throw him in at the corner of our house beside the garden. Oh yes, that is where he belongs. Of course, he knows this already.”
