Eonline today reported that Actor Lee Thompson Young committed suicide after practicing the religion "yoruba" I'm sorry but when did Yoruba become a religion!!?? Last I checked Yoruba was a language spoken by a group of people from my home country Nigeria. Someone please educate me because I am just as confused as the whole of west Africa.
The Rizzoli & Isles star, who was 29 at the time of his death, "didn't drink or party," says a source, adding, "He was the opposite. Lee loved to travel and was always the first to tell everyone to take a breath and enjoy the beauty of life." He was always "gentle and unassuming," despite his early success, and didn't have the typical "look-at-me" attitude.
That said, those close to Young noticed things "really changed" a few years ago when he began practicing Yorùbá, an Africa-based religion which has a saying, "iku ya j'esin", meaning "death is preferable to ignominy." Some have questioned whether this means that suicide is an acceptable way to preserve personal or family honor in the face of public ... E online.com
