It Is Ungrateful To Send ‘Seen’ After Receiving A Favour – Kanayo O Kanayo

Veteran Nollywood actor and filmmaker, Kanayo O. Kanayo, has criticized people who exhibit a nonchalant attitude after receiving favors from others.

Speaking via his Instagram account on Monday, the thespian criticized the response of “seen” after receiving money as a sign of ungratefulness.

He insisted that people who carried out such an act are entitled.

The veteran actor said, “I have one question. Why are people very ungrateful? You do somebody a favor by sending him or her money, and the person receives it and sends you a text with ‘seen.’”

Kanayo further blamed such a response on an “inheritance mentality,” where people expect help as a right, not a courtesy.

“Seen? Come on! You think it’s your right? That’s an inheritance mentality; people are like this, and it doesn’t show that you are grateful,” he added.

Kanayo urged people to express gratitude, saying that it encourages the giver to do more. He opined that remaining silent after receiving a gift is a sign of ingratitude.

He said, “Look, gratitude unspoken is ingratitude spoken. It’s not your right; learn to be grateful for whatever somebody does for you. That way, the person will be encouraged to do more. Stop being selfish; be grateful. Nobody owes you anything.”
