"But would you endorse it if were your father who died and your mum wanted to remarry?"
"Let him marry now? My issue is when anyone would discriminate against anyone who mourns her husband for just one year and goes ahead to remarry. Women are affected like that too. Congratulations to them."
"If na woman now, una go say e too quick."
"It is sel fish and wic ked to expect someone’s life to literally stop after losing their loved one . THEY HAVE TO MOVE ON . That is life . This is why , no matter how sad one is , no loved one ever gets buried with the dead at the burial ceremony."
"'One year after his mom's death' omo that's too fast nah."
