The word “party” often draws attention in this Covid19 era where everyone is familiar with the idea of social distancing. In fact even the government has placed laws in place to deal with anyone that violates social distancing laws. That could be the reasons why some Nigerians are attacking the media mogul Dele Momodu for having a virtual birthday party.
The famous business man turned 60 recently and he decided to have a party to celebrate his birthday. It went very well as people from all works of life celebrated him for attaining the age of 60. But against public perception, the party was done virtually with photos and videos, cutting of cake and many more.
Without waiting to get a complete gist on how the party was held, some Nigeria on twitter started attacking the media mogul for acting like he is above the law by holding a party. Their outbursts shows that many Nigerians do not still know what a virtual party is.
A virtual party is a party or celebration held online. it is considered the best way to celebrate and unite with friends and loved ones without any limits except physical distance. That was what Dele Momodu did.
It was Timi Dakolo that drew the attention of Nigerians to the real truth behind the alleged party after failing to convince some critics that it was a virtual party and not the usual party that Nigerians know.
