The actor took to his Instagram page in the early hours of today not to celebrate his birthday but to reflect about the recent happenings in the country.
In Kanayo.O.Kanayo own words, here’s his birthday message:
“My dear friends, proximate and distant. Today’s March 1st. It is my birthday. It is a day of sober reflections. I have a lot to thank God for but a lot of reminisce over. How can i celebrate? We are living a very challenging times and cross roads. The citizenry is divided among ethnic and religious lines. These so much waste of lives innocent blood crying all over the land. How then can we have peace? Families are in pain of either want or insecurity. How can i celebrate? My heart goes out to those caught in the web of displacement in their own lands, widows, orphan (especially those orphaned by unneccessary killings) and internally displaced persons who cannot even explain the cause of their displacement i ask how can i celebrate? Human life just became a number. Sanctity of life is subsidized. We shall overcome and pray NEVER to walk through PATH again. #OverandOut” – @kanayo.o.kanayo
The veteran actor recently returned to school to study Law at the University of Abuja. He is happily married to his wife Nneka Onyekwere and their union is blessed with 4 children.
