    I refuse to see the the lower part of her outfit lol! In my mind’s eyes, her skirt is short.

      Yes. thanks. It is our culture to celebrate when an elderly person dies. We mourn and we, then, celebrate. We don’t throw a party if the dead is young. And everyone celebrate in accordance to their background, pocket, lifestyle, personality or the last words of the deceased. Across Europe, even the Germans do the same, they celebrate when an older person dies. Different people, different culture. Learn to be more tolerant of others culture and norm. If you do it differently in your end, enlighten us so we can learn more. Don’t use sarcasm to belittle a culture you are not accustom to. Rather, learn from it, share yours and let’s all embrace our differences. Thanks. And please, it is spelt Yoruba. Cheers.

      Eniola, you are the designer of your own ensemble; your taste, your choice. But, the bottom bit of your ensemble is totally unnecessary and disconnected from the lovely and elegant top. I wished you didn’t add the bottom design. But hey, your choice. May your daddy’s soul find peace in the Lord.

      You’re stupid for putting Yoruba people. Don’t stupidly generalize; I hate brainless comments like yours. And maybe he was above 85 and they’re doing a celebration of life. Regardless, it’s not everyone that’ll still do that. Some of you are educated but ignorant.

      Must you call her ‘stupid?’ Why not say ‘You dont have to put…’ *Sigh! Nigerians! Like you are any better than the people you complain about.

    Bn, are you sure it’s a burial party and not a wedding party?
    Her makeup is beautiful but the skirt….

    “fab look for her dad’s burial”… an oxymoron, if ever I saw one. May his soul rest in peace.

    Oho o. I came here to ask the question that please have we stopped making any distinctions between funerals and weddings? Because it’s not just this lady’s outfit or the tag ‘party’, it’s just that I have of late observed an alarming blurring of lines….. but it looks like most of the earlier commenters are equally wondering. So I will not ask my question.

    We learn a lot of the naija culture on this website!!! Where I come from there is no “party” related to burial.

    • Abk

      April 24, 2017 at 2:04 pm

      Naija has lots of ethnicities. A LOT. Even in one tribe, there are different traditions in the tribe. An Igbo man/woman or Yoruba man/woman can have varied traditions depending on the state. 1 state or even 1 ethnic group can have different traditions. So no, you cannot learn about Naija culture from this website. You simply cannot. You cannot learn about any culture or tribe from any country from a website; its irrational to think so.

      You’ve been schooled and now you’re talking about taking it easy. How are you sure the commenter didn’t only reply you but still took it easy? That he/she was detailed doesn’t mean he/she was uneasy; how else are you supposed to understand if the comment wasn’t explicit? I didn’t even find the comment hostile.

      I disagree. We can learn here. Internet is also made for learning. We are all not going to go to the streets or villages to learn. It is via meeting, engaging and interacting with one another, and we interact here on this blog. I normally don’t comment but I had to under that person who spelt Yoruba as Yorouba and mocked a culture he/she knows nothing about. Yes, I am anon.

      Do you know why I had to comment? To enlighten her and others who will view and read the post and comments and take with them wrong impression and education about the Yoruba culture. You started off with good content by giving a proper description of the diversity of our cultures. But how you ended it is out of context. The internet is made for socialising, sharing and learning. We all need to use it wisely to teach one another whatever we know and have been exposed to. Have a lovely week.

    Talk about a party related to burial!!! That is Africa for you. Where others mourn and even cut off their hair, other cultures celebrate and throw a party. The diversity is out of this world.

      I think it depends largely on the age of the person that passed on.
      If they lived a long and fulfilling life, it’s usually a celebration of their life and not as sombre as usual funerals, also in some cultures people never miss an opportunity to party ? so there’s that.
      The diversity on our continent is truly amazing. ❤

    in her mind, I’m sure she’s like “dem go take, its my daddy’s burial”. the skirt does not fit the occasion and the whole outfit has too much going on > seriously in most instances “less is more”. In a bid to look “all that” she ended up looking tacky and over the top.
    I don’t know how she intend walking around in this outfit!!!!!

    Wow, times have really changed I remember my dads burial we were too grief stricken to glam up and it’s not up to ten years….hmmmm. I don’t think the age they pass matters, a loss is a loss, but thanks to keeping up appearances and social media, we’ve lost our humanity.

      Well in Yoruba culture it is different. Please people don’t be hypocrites . We celebrate the death of older people In the Yoruba culture and with a massive party at that. And that doesn’t mean we are not sad about the passing. However where a grandparent or parent lived long enough to see their children succeed, see the grandchildren and great-grandchildren, ah we celebrate the occasion WELL SELF!

    Please oh una. If the person died at an old age; it’s celebration of life o. If the children hv the money, why not? Some old people evn request that there should be celebration and festivity when they pass on.

    It seems as if she was desperately waiting for a celebration somewhat, to show off her fabulousness… Nd she got one.. …

    It is Yoruba culture to celebrate the life of older people when they die. It is not a funeral in these sense of being mournful but a celebration of a life well lived.

  19. Holypass...hehehehe

    What silly culture are you all referring to? From information privy to the public, he was a muslim. The muslim burial rites is the simplest ever.
    All this fagbo serenre is not asked for.

    If this money spent was given to a charitable cause…The blessings would surely be enormous. Instead, they engage in all this frivolities. Na wedding abi na birthday party? shiooo gbeskelegbe tueeh! *whatever that means*…Lol.

    Who culture hepp for heaven? If only we all knew…Every religion has preached that we are here to worship our LORD and the life of the hereafter is most important! Yet we still get carried away.

    As far as i am concerned..I said “I” ooo..This is disrespectful to a muslim…Madam, please keep praying for your father…he needs it more.

    I pray….May his soul rest in perfect peace, be forgiven and may he attain GODs eternal mercy.

    Y’all can come and rant…na una sabi. *drops mic* *passing by* *2 cents*…bleeeeh!

      Okay then, so we should also tell Yoruba Muslims to remove all the traditional Yoruba rites from weddings because once they have done nikkah, they don’t need all that. And all the traditional rites from naming ceremony. Because we are Muslims and Christians we should throw away the bath water and the baby? We should just obsolete our culture? Islam and Christianity are borrowed culture. And across the globe, every group who practises borrowed culture adapt it to their own culture.

      If you wish to do simple, that’s your choice. I don’t have energy for this type of party Eniola threw. It looks overwhelming for me. But I can’t judge her. At the end of the day, you and I are not God. It is by faith. If she believes this amount of celebration is how she will celebrate her dad to heaven, so be it. Later when people come after you and start abusing Islam, you will get upset. Try not to ooze fanatic attitude and focus on what your religion says you, personally, should do to make heaven. At the end of the day, it is about your personal relationship with God. And that’s what you should focus on. Stop looking around for who to condemn on God’s behalf. We are not God. You are not God, with all your own rules and judgement. An atheist might just look at you and tell you your religious beliefs are baseless and your religion is a cult. How will you feel?

      At the end of the day, God’s greatest commandment is love. Love yourself, love one another like you love yourself and love God. Once you have done this, God is with you. Because if you love like God asks you to, you will not be here judging, nor will you be telling people how to practise a religion. Rather, you should learn to enlighten and educate others in a positive way.

      Yoruba Muslims first perform the simple Islamic burial. Then pray and celebrate about 40 days later. The Yoruba Christians perform three different events; Wake keeping(Fri), Church service + burial +reception(Sat) & thanksgiving in church (Sun). For both religion, if the deceased is young/old but requested to not be celebrated, they will just be buried and it will be left at that. That’s our culture. And if there are some additions or subtractions I omitted based on state by state or town to town and etc cultural diversity, someone should please enlighten us. But what I wrote is the general standard across all Yorubaland.

      And just because some people do all these do not mean they don’t give to the poor or help others. I can’t judge Eniola in regards to her community service or charity engagements because I don’t know her and what she has done, is doing or hasn’t. The only way to bring such topic in is by simply reminding people to not forget the needy and sick, that as they celebrate and have fun, they should also remember those who can’t, by praying for them and financially contributing to their wellness and growth.

      You can’t dictate to people how to spend their hard earned money; they are the only ones who knows why they work hard and wish to have money, what they intend it for and only God knows their character, intentions and why he blesses them with such wealth. If they don’t use the money wisely, God is still the king and judge. And if it isn’t money from God’s blessings, I don’t see why anyone will encourage/criticise someone to/for not pass/ing on such money to the needy and sick. If it isn’t blessings from God, it won’t be fruitful or amount to anything substantial for whoever acquires such wealth and those they pass it on to.

      I mention “encourage/criticise” because some Nigerians are fond of coming online to judge or dictate to others how to spend their monies; wealth that they have no clue where it came from. Yes, we are to advocate for charity. But can we learn how to do it in a more informative, educative and effective manner!

      At the end of the day, we are not the judge, we can only focus on our own personality, character, God’s commandments and how we inspire others.

      Holypass….a sarcastic name that befits you; calling yourself out before we all do. 😉 “we” are not ranting but expressing our opinion peacefully. Do what you feel is best for your relationship with God and your community and inspire others. God bless you. 🙂

      Only God is holy. And He is King and Judge forever!

      A thesis for your epistle. I now drop my mic too.

      From: A person who is very passionate about cultures, individualism, personality and God.

    The same people complaining about the so called ‘excess’ of the event will also complain if she had put two wooden benches under a canopy in the sun and ‘celebrate’ her father’s passing! Nigerians! That she is a celebrity and can afford it does not matter. Yorubas have been known to celebrate lavish parties. If you dont like it then please cross to the other side of the road and sit on the curb. That the girl has given several times to charity and motherless babies home is of no consequence. Look, just do you! Haters are gonna hate anyway. Darned if you do, darned if you dont.
