21 Faces We’re Positive Your Father Has Made

March 31, 2016
I know we are used to Nigerian mothers serving face, but I think Nigerian fathers are underrated. I mean, these men talk in faces!!

1. When you try to remind him about the money he promised you.

Jeez, Dad!

2. Or when you randomly ask him for anything.

I mean, you’re my dad right?

3. When you say something incredibly stupid.

And you just wish you had shut up.

4. When you offend your mom, and he has to discipline you…

…but he secretly doesn’t want to. And now he has to and it’s all your fault.

5. When you deliberately go against his advice and you get this familiar face.

You should’ve just listened.

6. When your teacher is reporting you to him.

You better be very afraid!

7. When he’s trying to let you know that your beatdown is coming.

Yup! It’s about to be lit.

8. When he’s watching the news or football and you change the channel.

LMAO! Are you mad?

9. When you embarrass him in front of his friends.

Oniranu!

10. When you’ve done anything to ‘disgrace the family name’ and he hands you over to your mom.

You’re her child now.

11. When you personally let him down.

You feel so crushed.

12. When he’s explaining the relationship between you and your phone.

But he’s not even mad.

13. When you tell him you’re going out of the house.

Be going. Sha come back.

14. When you come back home late and he’s waiting like…

…go back to where you’re coming from.

15. When you people are forcing him to watch Telemundo or Nollywood.

You cannot come and kill me.

16. When you come home with 1.4 CGPA and still ask for a new phone.

Are you stupid?

17. When you serve him food without water.

See your life!

18. When you start explaining the technicalities of your course to him.

Wo! Carry your wahala and be going.

19. When your father finds your Twitter page, and he cannot believe this is his child.

Kai!

20. When you ask your dad if he’s proud of you.

LOL, afi pride!

21. When your dad is punishing you sibling and you start laughing.

You want stray slap abi?

But sometimes, sometimes, your dad can turn up with the best of them.

Like when those traditional drums come on!
