Nigerian vocalist, Timi Dakolo, has taken aim at those who use times of sorrow as an opportunity to provide advice to the bereaved.
After hearing that his colleague Davido and his fiancée Chioma had lost their 3-year-old son, Ifeanyi, in a domestic accident, the musician offered his two cents.
Ifeanyi drowned at his father’s home on Banana Island on Monday, October 31, according to reports. He was taken to Evercare Hospital in Lekki and was declared dead when he got there.
Timi Dakolo asserted in a tweet he published that people shouldn’t consider counseling bereaved individuals as their obligation. He believes that the time is incorrect and that people should learn to pray for them and follow their own paths.
“It is not your job to advice a grieving person, the timing is wrong. Just pray for them ad go your way.
“You and your advice are mad”.
