Some of Ufuoma’s admirers are wondering who made photoshoots mandatory for Nigerians during birthday celebrations.
Ufuoma McDermott, a Nollywood actress, is unsure who started the habit of men and women going to photoshoots for each birthday celebration.
The mother-of-two asked this question just a few hours earlier, while thanking everyone who helped her celebrate her birthday on Saturday, April 23.
Ufuoma McDermott, who was unable to conduct a photoshoot for her birthday, was grateful that fans, colleagues, and family members found a way to commemorate her special day instead.
She posted a nice photo of herself with the caption:
“I want to express my gratitude to you all for celebrating my birthday yesterday. What an eventful day! Even if there isn’t a photoshoot or a post (who invented that?) You’ve just discovered a new way to make me feel unique. Thank you very much.
The phone calls…
The feedback… The messages are… The articles… The presents May the Lord, God Jehovah, abundantly bless you.”
Some internet users commented on the post, asking why Nigerians have made it a culture to borrow money for photoshoots in order to ‘fit in.’ The following are some of the responses:
On Tuesday, April 19th, Nollywood celebs flooded social media with photographs and videos from Rita Dominic’s traditional wedding to Fidelis Anosike, the publisher of Dailytimes.
In an Instagram post, Ufuoma stated that people could “actually taste the happiness” from Rita Dominic’s wedding.
Rita Dominic’s wedding, according to Ufuoma McDermott, illustrates that people need love to make the world a better place, and that the star-studded celebration made people forget about their cares and anxieties for a while.
