Feb 10, 2018 – Desmond Elliott: The Day I See The White Man Celebrating Eyo Festival Is The Day I’ll Celebrate Valentine’s Day

Nollywood actor, Hon. Desmond Elliot has revealed why he doesn’t celebrate Valentine’s day like others.

In a telephone chat with TN, Hon Elliot said he doesn’t believe in celebrating Valentine’s day because it is foreign to the Yoruba culture.

His Words:

“I don’t see where people celebrate Eyo festival outside Nigeria. So, me, I’m not into valentine. The day I see the white man celebrating Eyo festival, then me, I would start.”

    Desmond is right. We always celebrate White man’s culture, why can’t they celebrate ours, at least the good ones?

    How many Eyo festivals have you ever celebrated in your life?
    You want to claim you celebrated valentine with your wife before and after you married her?
    I am not a supporter of valentines day but your statement is full of hypocrisy and lies. Typical of a politician. You only announced you were Yoruba while you wanted to run for public office. Dont you think changing your name to a more traditional name would have refected your love for culture? Mr man, make we hear better word jare.
