Nollywood actress, Chioma Toplis has promised not to grieve or be present at her father’s burial when he dies.
She said this while observing the death of Osinachi Nwachukwu, the gospel singer, who had cases of domestic violence in marriage.
In an Instagram post, she said her mother was forced to leave her father due to alleged marital infidelity and domestic violence.
She disclosed despite being an elder in the church, her father was terrible at home while she hailed her mother for terminating the marriage, adding that she has decided not to attend his funeral.
She said, “I thought we are 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 everything bad,” she wrote.
“Do you know what? She is the winner for leaving alive. I grew up wondering what made my mother marry such an awful man. I won’t even attend his burial even if I am in Nigeria.
“The most interesting part is none of my siblings will either. Except my brother the first son just to fulfill the native and custom law.
“Yes, he will 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.”
