No mind them to think that people ate amala and goat meat when my Dad died
No be for Yoruba funeral, nobody go tell you before you drag amala and ewedu
That’s why I love my Muslim brothers, they have the simplest funerals ever.
So we should waste the food? the grieving family will now waste their money cooking food no one would eat. Haaa they won’t like that o
Some people will eat at a funeral and still carry take away as if they were praying for the person to die
