Anybody who texts ‘seen’ after receiving financial help is ungrateful – Kanayo

Legendary Nigerian actor, Kanayo O. Kanayo has thrown a question to the public regarding the way people respond after receiving monetary gift.

The movie star wondered why some individuals are ungrateful and have a sense of entitlement to another person’s money or prized possession.

Kanayo took to his Instagram account to express concern over how people often receive favours but fail to show appreciation, citing when someone sends money and only gets “seen” in response.

The filmmaker advised his fans to cultivate gratitude, emphasising that unspoken appreciation is equivalent to ingratitude.

He explained that no one owes anyone anything, stressing that showing gratitude enables others to continue their acts of kindness.

Kanayo wrote; “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”.
