The untimely demise of Manuel ‘Junior’ Agogo has hit the nation very hard and many of us are still coming to terms with it.

However, the circumstances leading to Agogo’s death just reveals our nature as a people whose love for “dead bodies” supersedes our love for the living.

Agogo, who was hit by a stroke in 2015 complained of neglect by his colleagues during a BBC documentary in 2017 titled Speechless. Since that documentary was aired, did anything change?

Sonnie Badu has mourned the late Junior Agogo via an Instagram post whiles revealing where we failed as a people.

So the multi-million dollar question is: will we ever learn to honor people when they are alive?
