Nollywood actress, Chioma Toplis, has said she will not attend her father’s funeral to pay her last respect when he passes on.
The actress made the statement while reacting to a tweet made by a lady simply identified as @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 commenting on Instagram, said her father was also an elder in a church, adding that her mother left him because he was lazy, lousy, senseless 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.”
