June 20, 2016 – Muyiwa Ademola To Nigerians: Celebrate Your People While They Are Still Alive Not When They’re Gone
TOMORROW MIGHT NEVER COME!
Hnmmm… Unconsciously, we are all guilty of this. Why do we celebrate people more when they are gone ? I personally never wished late Stephen Keshi a happy birthday on my IG page but gave him a tribute during his exit,we are all guilty !
Same goes for Alfa Lati, a dear friend and colleague who passed 2 days ago and even my very pleasant sister, Rita Kosoko, OJB etc.
A little attention/happiness/celebration could have probably elongated their lives. Though I have nothing against those tributes but please let’s celebrate one another while alive as well. Celebrate me now, appreciate me now, send me that car gift now, give me that money now,hug me now, correct me now,spank me now … I pray for long life for us all but only ONE person owns tomorrow; THE GOD ALMIGHTY!
A Yoruba adage says “Bi a se pejo sinku, ti a pa pejo duro ti alaare bee, o seese ki omaku” (A dead might live long if the kind of attention given during his funeral was given during his sickness).
It is a trend that should be cautioned especially in the entertainment industry.
Remember, we are guilty and we can all be guilty as tommorow might never come, do it now
