You’re ungrateful if you text ‘seen’ after getting financial assistance – Kanayo O Kanayo


The Nollywood actor Kanayo O Kanayo has discussed the importance of having gratitude in our interactions with other people.

The seasoned actor voiced worries about the rising trend of ingratitude, in which recipients of assistance neglect to express gratitude.

Kanayo used the example of giving money to a person in need and getting nothing more than a cursory “seen” in return—a lack of acknowledgment or thanks.

He underlined that silence about thankfulness is tantamount to ingratitude because it ignores the compassion provided.

The actor encouraged his fans to cultivate the habit of gratitude, recognizing that no one owes us anything.

Kanayo said:

“Hello, my friends, I have one question. Why are people very ungrateful?”

“You do somebody a favour by sending him or her money and the person receives it and sends you a text saying ‘seen’. Seen? Come on! Do you think it’s your right? That’s an inheritance mentality; people are like this and it doesn’t show that you are grateful.

“Look, gratitude unspoken is ingratitude spoken. It’s not your right so learn to be grateful for whatever someone does for you. That way, the person will be encouraged to do more. Stop being selfish; be grateful because nobody owes you anything. Have a beautiful week ahead.”

In another story, Kanayo O Kanayo took a stand against the dangerous trend of money ritual among Nigerian youths.

The actor, who has been associated with ritualistic roles in his movie career, emphasized that there is no connection between offering human sacrifices and acquiring wealth.

Instead, he encouraged Nigerian youths to pursue success through hard work and legitimate means.

He debunked the idea that individuals living in thatched houses would ask others to commit heinous acts, such as killing their girlfriends, as a means to amass wealth.

He asserted that such notions are pure fiction and have no basis in reality.
