A Nigerian celebrity, Kay Ojay, took February 14 to the extreme by presenting his bloody heart as Valentine’s Day after his ‘girlfriend’ requested for gift.
The actor and mixologist after moment of confusion decided to ‘literarily’ give his heart in on of the most amusing photoshoot to celebrate love.
Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is celebrated annually on February 14. It is widely regarded as the day of expressing love. Couples all around the world look forward to spending time with each other, sharing gifts, chocolates, champagne, etc. But, there’s more to the day than that. It is named after a saint: St. Valentine.
Many believe the Valentine’s Day tradition can be traced back to a Roman fertility festival known as Lupercalia.
Valentine was declared a saint by the Roman Catholic Church and died approximately in 270 AD. He is also thought to have been a priest who assisted Christian couples in secretly marrying each other.
Some people also think that Valentine’s Day marks the death anniversary of Saint Valentine, who died on February 14 in 270 AD. Others say the celebrations began as an attempt by the Church to ‘Christianise’ the Lupercalia holiday. The Roman celebration honoured Faunus, the god of agriculture, as well as Romulus and Remus, the Roman founders. Men would pick names of women from a box, and they would become a couple through the event. This could even lead to marriage in some cases. Pope Gelasius picked the period of Lupercalia celebrations as the day to remember Saint Valentine towards the end of the 5th century, resulting in the association of Valentine’s Day with love and romance.

According to many historical records, the saint whose name is associated with the festival could have been more than one man. Valentine was declared a saint by the Roman Catholic Church and died approximately in 270 AD. He is also thought to have been a priest who assisted Christian couples in secretly marrying each other. So, he was killed by Emperor Claudius II. The emperor had forbidden males from marrying because he believed that unmarried men were more dedicated troops. Valentine was opposed to the notion.
On this day, many accross the world tend to express love the best way they can. For people like Jennifer’s Diary star, Odjegba Oghenekaro Kay also known as Kay Ojay, and model Bisola Adedokun, Valentines Day could as well take another toll, but then, its not a day for death but simple expression of love, forgiveness, kindness and pure happiness.
