Nollywood actress and producer, Omoni Oboli, was among the guests to support their colleague Eucharia Anunobi, as she laid her son to rest on Tuesday morning at the Ikoyi, Lagos Cemetery Oboli was chastised by a fan who expressed disapproval of the actress’ dressing, saying that what she wore was not proper.
The actress posted a picture on Instagram with colleague and friend Ini Edo saying: “My sis @iniedo and I out to support our sister @euchariaanunobi as she layed her son to rest today. Heart-wrenching day fam, pray for her and her family. She needs all our prayers. We pray that The Prince of Peace gives her the fortitude to bear this great loss. It is well #RIPRaymond.”
However, an Instagram user by the name of @Oyinlade2016 felt the actresses outfit was too flashy, replied: “Do Pardon me @omonioboli: You are someone I have great respect for, basically because of the maturity you display at every turn. And so far you’ve been doing a splendid job with your carriage. So I wonder why? Please do note that I neither know the whole story nor have the facts behind this selfie but trust me, it’s the most inappropriate to be posted with the event it’s linked to on your handle."
“You are a mother and I am as most who follow you are and none of us dream not even slightly nor wish nor pray to experience the loss of a child. It’s the most disheartening trauma ever. Sad to say that, perhaps Eucharia doesn’t have another child, hopefully, she does, nevertheless no one prays for it. Believe me; this is overboard, not befitting ‘mothers’ supporting a colleague in such a situation. Perhaps it might have been best to think of what reactions would be particularly that of the deceased’s mom in a year or years to come when she stumbles on this. The First natural reaction would be…your guess is as good as mine. Even if instructions were to dress gayly etc, as adults and mums we ought to have used our own better judgments. Like I’d said earlier, do pardon me. Just an opinion. Thanks a lot”.
Mrs. Oboli did not reply to the Instagram user and proceeded to post other pics on her page.
Young Raymond Ekwu had died at the age of 15 weeks back after a lifetime of battling sickle cell anemia.
Colleagues of the actress spotted at the funeral were Ini Edo, Rita Dominic, Monalisa Chinda, Lilian Bach, Launcelot Imaseun, and others.
Was the Instagram user correct to chastise Mrs. Oboli? What are your thoughts?
