Clout chasing is for business, not for mourning -Etinosa Idemudia
Etinosa Idemudia, Nollywood actress, posted on social media about her opinion of her colleagues who enjoy documenting their grief over a lost colleague.
Some people, she says, will knowingly give their personal assistants their phones so they may record themselves sobbing or paying a condolence visit.
She suggested that when it comes to matters like that, people should be sensitive and emotionally invested.
She continued by saying that folks who act in this manner are not sincerely saddened by the loss of the person they are mourning. She described it as offensive behavior.
Her post reads;
“I feel we can all drop our phones and cameras and really do the condolence visit we came for.”
“Imagine me seeing someone recording himself or herself coming to my father’s house for condolence.”
“I would have destroyed that camera. Let’s all be emotionally sensitive, emotionally involved and emotionally genuine. Not everything is content.”
“Well, I guess we all grieve differently. If you are really touched, if it is not just a publicity sighting for you, you will not have the mind to tell your P.A to hold the camera.”
“As I’m walking in be recording. Record everybody, as she is crying, record her.”
“Then you sit down, edit, even put on a soundtrack. No, it’s offensive. Clout is good for business, but this one is not nice.”
