Nollywood actress, Etinosa Idemudia has urged her colleagues to stop filming when they pay condolence visit to a grieving family.
Her post comes after the death of popular actress, Ada Ameh, who passed away on Sunday, July 17, in Delta state.
Following her death, some Nigerian celebrities paid a visit to her family and bestfriend, Empress Njamah, to condole them for their loss.
However, some celebrities recorded a video of the emotional highs and lows during the visit and shared the video online.
This didn’t sit well with Etinosa and she took to her Instagram story to voice out her reservation about people filming during a condolence visit.
According to her, not everything should be used as a social media content and people should learn to sympathize with a grieving family without recording.
“I feel we can all drop our phones and cameras and really do the condolence visit we came for. Imagine me seeing someone recording himself or herself coming to my father’s house for condolence. I would have destroyed that camera. Let’s all be emotionally sensitive, emotionally involved and emotionally genuine. Not everything is CONTENT. Well. I guess. We all grieve differently.
If you are really touched, If it is not just a publicity sighting for you, you will not have mind to tell your P.A hold the camera. As I’m walking in the recording. Record everybody. As she’s crying record her. Then you sat down, edited, even put soundtrack. No. It’s offensive. Clout is good for business but this one is not nice”.
