The sad biography written by the children of a Nigerian man who died at age 66 has been met with a range of reactions.
Samuel Strong posted the biography page to the Facebook group Rant HQ Extention and joked that they did put him to rest.
Even though no one is perfect, the man’s children said that he didn’t leave them anything. The person who wrote the biography said that he wished he hadn’t had him as a father when he was growing up.
They criticized the dead man for being kind to strangers but not taking care of his own home.
“…YES, YOU WERE SO NICE TO OTHER PEOPLE, BUT YOUR HOME WAS A TOTAL MESS. “AS I GREW UP, I REGRETTED HAVING YOU AS A FATHER, BUT LOOK AT ME NOW, STANDING TO LAY YOU TO REST,” SAYS AN EXCERPT FROM THE PREAMBLING OF THE BIOGRAPHY.
Here are a few of the reactions:
Isaac Inwang said:
“If God wants me to die old, I hope my kids don’t talk about me like this man’s kids talked about him. I hope my kids celebrate my fatherhood both while I’m alive and after I’m dead.”
Adebayo Bello said, “This is a message to all big men’s children who don’t want to work and are instead thinking about what they will get from their fathers.” This is how many of you will be let down by your father.”
Charles Ndubuisi said, “I had the best father anyone could have asked for, but even if it had been the other way around, I would never have brought his name and memory down like this.”
“I don’t blame them at all,” Awang Patrick said. I know what it’s like to have a father who is a beast at home but an angel everywhere else. I’m right there with you… Those kids won’t be happy, but the man, wherever he is, will have a hard time getting to heaven.
