Kumawood actor Oboy Siki has ignited a firestorm of controversy with his recent bold and controversial statement.
The controversial actor has challenged the conventional wisdom surrounding parental responsibility by children.
According to Oboy Siki in an interview, young men and women should not feel obligated to take care of their parents.
As argued by him, young men and women should use their monies on investments or travel abroad rather than to spend them on their old parents.
The actor went even further, to describe those who financially assist their parents as “fools,” claiming that he sees no significance in such acts.
Many netizens have since expressed shock and disappointment.
A lot of them have emphasized the ingrained importance of family, respect for elders, and the reciprocal nature of caregiving.
