Actress Mary Lazarus laments bitterly on the tradition of burying people in Igbo culture

Published by on October 13th, 2021.

Nollywood actress, Mary Lazarus has lamented bitterly on the tradition of burying people in Igbo culture as she recounted her mother’s burial rites.

According to the actress, Igbo funerals are the most stressful due to their funny demands. Narrating her ordeal, they were asked to repeat the service of songs in the village despite it has been held in Lagos and other programs (Wake keep, burial, thanksgiving) were to follow.

Mary revealed in each of the scheduled days for the event, everybody must eat in the community and those that know nothing about you would want to milk you dry while in her mom’s village, they demanded a fat cow.

In a shared post, she said it is difficult to have a peaceful burial and a poor man might not be able to afford those extravagant spending which is a cause for alarm since the Igbo tradition does not permit burying their people outside their homes.

She wrote:

Planning an Igbo burial is the most stressful thing ever. People that were never part of your life demanding for things they can’t afford, looking for ways to milk you dry. Imagine after doing mumsy’s Service of Songs in Lagos, they told us we must repeat it in the village. In this order….. Service of Songs, Wake Keep, Burial day, Thanksgiving and people must chop one each of this four days o… on the burial day, A woman came in saying “Oh you must serve Reverend food before corpse get to the church”. she started mentioning … Eba separate, rice, chicken, meat, drinks, peppersoup, even Nkwobi. How did you know we cooked all these…
