Nigerian comedian, Bovi Ugboma has replied folks who have labelled his second child and only daughter rude.
The father of three had shared a video of him chiding Elena for not joining her mum and brother in the kitchen to cook and as always, she had replied him with a sharp retort.
Some folks in the comment section felt some type of way and had shared their opinion, leading Bovi to reply them in defense of his little girl.
He pointed out that speaking freely does not mean indiscipline. He added that it was just light-hearted banter.
Bovi added that he was raised as a confident child and he’s raising same. He noted that those triggered were probably abused as kids and therefore, see a child being confident as tantamount to being rude. He captioned the video:
“How times have changed…
UPDATE- I have read all the comments and I’m convinced people see what they want to see. To those who found it lighthearted, you can tell there’s emotional equilibrium in their lives. They could see that speaking freely doesn’t necessarily mean indiscipline. And we were basically on cruise. As for those who were alarmed, check well, we were raised to think confident use of words amounts to being rude. That’s why in some places, a younger person asking an older person “how are you” or “how nau” is regarded as being rude. Cheer up. You’re triggered because you were abused growing up and you have mistaken being outspoken for being rude. That’s not to say kids can’t be rude. But in this scenario, she wasn’t being rude. Cheer up!.”
