The veteran singer, Onyeka Onwenu says the burial ceremony that Obi Cubana held for his mother was indecent and wasteful.
She criticised the socialite insisting that the burial tagged ‘the burial of the year’ was an overly extravagant display of wealth rather than laying somebody to rest.
She expressed this view in an article she wrote in Premium Times.
“I told a friend just days before the most outrageous burial of Innyom Ezinne Uche Iyiegbu in Oba, Anambra State in July that I had given my family instructions on how to bury me when my time comes. Do it quickly, quietly and privately,” she wrote.
“Celebrate me with prayers, lunch, or dinner afterwards. Share some jokes about me and laugh. Mourn, yes, but not excessively.”
“Make merriment and then go about your business. If my friends want to celebrate me, they should do so while I am alive, so that I can enjoy it with them, not when I am gone and have no idea about this. That is me Onyeka Onwenu.”
She, however, also said that she does not condemn it, but that she feels it should be an obnoxious event.
