Some topics are so sensitive that talking about it may be quite difficult. Questions like, “how can one tell a friend who has body odour” has been asked on different social media platforms and the dominant response has been “buy them deodorant”.
But media personality, Layole Oyatogun does not agree with that. According to her, it is a wicked thing not to open up to that friend about their issues.
The question now is, how can one approach that issue so as not to offend such friend?
“Let’s talk about some PAINFUL truths today- BODY ODOUR.
You are a wicked friend if you cannot tell a close friend that he or she has body odour. STOP giving them perfumes and deodorant sprays hoping to mask the stench. Tell them the truth in a nice way. It is better you tell them than let the world continuously mock them behind their backs.
I attended an event some days ago and sat beside a group of friends. As soon as one of the girls walked to the restroom, her friends kept on talking about how she stinks and none of them could tell her. They all kept mum the moment she joined them back on their table
FYI- People who smell sometimes don’t know they do. TELL THEM!”
