“Why The Last Respect Given To The Dead Can’t Be Given To The Living” — BBNaija Star, Kemen

Big Brother Naija star, Kemen has explained why people receive more love, attention and respect when they die, compared to when they are alive.

Kemen explains

This comes after the death of Nigerian music legend, Sound Sultan, at age 44. Following his death, celebrities and Nigerians at large took to social media to mourn his demise and pay tributes to him.

However, the likes of music executive, Soso Soberekon accused people, who didn’t reach out to the singer when he was battling with cancer, of showing fake love after his death.


In an apparent reaction to this, Kemen has now taken to his Instagram page to correct the popular notion that the attention people give dead people is “fake love”.

According to him, huge respect and attention can only be given to the dead because it is a one-time affair, adding that it can’t be given to a living person because it is not sustainable in the long run.

He wrote;

“The love, attention, and respect accorded to the dead can only be accorded to the dead because it is a one-off it’s called “last respect”. You can’t give such to the living cos it’s not sustainable. Don’t mistake this reality for some selfish emotional bais.”
