The service of songs and night of tribute for late reality TV star, Patrick Fakoya A.K.A Rico Swavey, was held in Lagos state this evening, October 19. The 29-year-old died last Thursday, October 13 from injuries he sustained from a motor accident he was involved in.
Shortly after the event, Big Brother Naija star, Dorathy, took to her Twitter page to share a video of herself and her fellow stars singing, possibly smoking and holding up their glasses to ‘celebrate Rico’s life’ and it caused splitting opinions on the micro-blogging website.
We love you Rico 🕊🕊🕊, she’d captioned the video but she wouldn’t have expected the level of dragging that ensued in the comment section.

Below are some comments culled from the post
Muyiwa wrote – That guy was 29, he died few days to his birthday. You guys couldn’t even be sober at his candle light service. Any excuse just to flex and post for the gram. It’s so insensitive to be singing that forever young song too, Rico didn’t want to live forever young? Disgraceful

Brook wrote – If this was after the burial, maybe people wouldn’t be talking but it’s the candle night. A night of solemn assembly and y’all are drinking, smoking and all.
For people saying there’s nothing wrong,would you mourn a young family member( God forbid) ds way?
