Chioma Toplis, a Nollywood actress, has stated that she will not attend her father’s burial to pay her last respects when he passes away.

The actress remarked in response to a tweet from a lady who only goes by the handle @Jayritse.

The tweet read; “My father was an elder in the church, a proper elder. That was at church. At home, he was a wife-beater. He once beat my mom with a wooden plank with nails, tore her arm too, with blood and all.

“He died nine years ago. I still haven’t cried. Thanks, everyone, she left him before he passed on. She’s thriving now.”

Chioma while reacting to the lady’s post, said that her father was an elder in a church too and that her mother left him because he was sluggish, lousy, dumb, and foolish.

She said; “I thought we were 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, (he is) everything bad.

Do you know what? She is the WINNER for leaving alive. I grew up wondering what the hell made my mother marry such an awful man.

I won’t even attend his burial even if I am in Nigeria, talk more of crying. 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.”

When her father passes away, the actress claimed that his funeral would be a sham.

Yes, he will (definitely) 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. Oh yes, that is where he belongs. Of course, he knows this already,” she said.
