Some Nigerian Celebrities on How They Will Be Spending Their Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s day for this year is billed to hold on Wednesday, 14 February. Many are already excited about it and are making big preparations for that special day also known as lover’s day. Punch made an effort to quiz a number of Nigerian celebs on their plans for Valentine’s day.

Read their responses below:

I will tell my wife I love her –Comic actor, Basorge Tariah

I don’t particularly celebrate Valentine’s Day; so, I have never had a bad experience on the day. My wife loves Valentine and she is the one that usually makes it memorable.

I don’t usually celebrate birthdays and some of the other events people celebrate because I feel that celebration should be for every day.

However, the most memorable Valentine’s Day experience I’ve had was when I returned home once and I found that my wife had set the table tastefully with food and candles.

She treated me to some very nice meals but I kept laughing all through because it was novel to me.

Even though I do not subscribe to the practice of Valentine’s Day, I will continue the yearly ritual by calling my wife to tell her how much I love her.

It’s going to be special one for my wife and me –Singer Oritsefemi

I have an event in Ondo State and my wife will go with me. This is my first Valentine’s Day celebration as a married man and I want it to be special for us.

It is a day meant for lovers and people use the opportunity to buy gifts for each other. There is no gift I will get that is bigger than being alive to witness another Valentine celebration.

My plans are secret –Anita Joseph

I have yet to know what my boyfriend has in stock for me this year. I wouldn’t also disclose whatever I am planning because I believe that it’s supposed to be a secret.

My most memorable Valentine experience was in Dubai some years ago. My boyfriend bought me a car and gave it to me on Valentine’s Day.

However, there are still those who don’t believe in celebrating it and two of such persons are Lagos State lawmaker and filmmaker, Honourable Desmond Elliot and actor Yemi Solade.

Valentine is alien to our culture –Yemi Solade

I don’t indulge in such western practices. I don’t celebrate it because it is not part of our tradition. I celebrate my wife and loved ones whenever I like.

I’m not into valentine: Desmond Elliot

The actor cum politician has stated that he won’t be marking the day which has been globally set to celebrate lovers.

Though the Lagos State House of Assembly is presently on recess, the lawmaker, speaking to The Nation, said he didn’t believe in celebrating Valentine as it was a foreign festival alien to Yoruba culture.

“Me, I don’t see where people celebrate Eyo outside the country,” he said, referring to the traditional Lagos festival in which masquerades draped in an all-white regalia parade the streets of Lagos.

“So, me, I’m not into valentine. The day I see the white man celebrating Eyo festival, then me, I would start.”

Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is an annual holiday celebrated on February 14.

Named for a Christian martyr which dates back to the 5th century, but has origins in the Roman holiday Lupercalia, the day is set aside for lovers across the world to celebrate themselves, and with many people exchanging gifts, cards, or flowers with their special “valentine.”
