Actress, Chioma Toplis made this revelation while reacting to a Twitter user’s post narrating how he didn’t mourn his father’s death because he was a deadbeat who mistreated his mother.
“My father was an elder in the church. A proper Elder. That was at church. At home, he was wife beater. He once beat my mum with a wooden plank with nails. Tore her arm too with blood and all. He died 9 years ago, I still haven’t cried. Thanks everyone. She left him before he passed on. Thank God. She’s thriving now.” The tweet read.
The actress, who opened up that she had a similar experience vowed not to mourn or attend her father’s burial when he dies.
In her words,
“I thought we are the only ones that have a U$ELE$$ 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 Everything bad. Do you know what? She is the WINNER for leaving alive?
“I grew up wondering what the h€ll 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.
Yes, he will defo die before us because he came to this world before US! N/B his burial will be nothing to write home about. Just open the ground and throw him in at the corner of our house beside the garden Oh Yes that is where he belongs! Of course he knows this already!”
