Kanayo O. Kanayo-Why I did not celebrate my 55th birthday
Renowned Nollywood actor, Kanayo O. Kanayo, has said he could not celebrate his 55th birthday on Wednesday due to the crisis in the country.
He said he couldn’t have celebrated with religious crisis and innocent blood crying all over the land.
On his Instagram page @Kanayo.o.Kanayo, he wrote: “My dear friends, Proximate and distant. Today’s March 1st. It’s my birthday. It’s a day of sober reflections. I have a lot to thank God for but a lot to reminisce over.
“How can I celebrate? We live in very challenging times and at cross roads.
“The citizenry is divided along ethnic and religious lines. There’s so much waste of lives, innocent blood crying all over the land. How then can we have peace? Families are in pain of either want or insecurity. How can I celebrate?
“My heart goes out to those caught in the web of displacement in their own land, widows, orphans( especially those orphaned by unnecessary killings) and internally displaced persons, who cannot even explain the cause of their displacement. I ask, How can I celebrate?
“Human life just became a number. Sanctity of life is subsidized. We shall overcome and pray NEVER to walk through this PATH again.”
