That1960Chick.com poses a thought provoking question. Recently, Peter Okoye threw a birthday bash for his girlfriend and mother of his children (one born and the other soon to be born), Lola. Attendance was restricted to family and close friends. According to That1960chick.com, present was the Managing Director of Dana Air. By now all of you know about Dana Air and the crash of a Dana Air plane in Nigeria that killed 153 passengers back in June. There are lawsuits pending in the USA and Nigeria. Dana Air’s MD is now seen partying it up with Peter Okoye. That1960chick has a problem with this.
I’ll let excerpts from her post do the talking. She raises a valid and bigger question. Should celebrities party it up with persons who they know or know to be allegedly liable for the killings (whether intentionally or unintentionally) of Nigerians?
“Last Sunday night Peter Okoye of superstar twin pop group P-Square threw a surprise birthday bash for his longterm pregnant girlfriend and mother if his son Lola Omotayo at an exclusive spot in Lagos.
While I’m not hear to take anything away from the celebration. One can’t help but notice that among the close family and friends present at the event is the Chief Executive Officer of Dana Air Jacky Hathiramani who was there enjoying the festivities with his wife.
Yes the very same Dana Air! Who can forget the ill fated Dana Abuja to Lagos flight which crashed into a building minutes from the local airport in Lagos on June 3rd due to dual engine failure, killing all 153 passengers & crew on board plus 6 people on ground. This tragedy is still fresh in our minds, some families only recently (after months of waiting) got to bury their dead…And the MD of Dana Air feels it’s right to party it up with celebrities. Need I remind you that the management of Dana Air made the commercial decision to continue flying a plane that had been reported as faulty on a number of occasions and as a result of this young people, children, fathers, mothers, friends, colleagues are all dead. . .”
