A new dad has sparked outrage on social media after he shared a video of himself spraying his newborn baby with naira notes.
The Nigerian man identified as comedian and actor, MC Noni, took to his Instagram page on Thursday, May 4 to announce the arrival of his bundle of joy.
However, instead of congratulatory messages, the new father was chastised for spraying new naira notes on his newborn baby an action that many deemed unhealthy.
In the video, the proud father, who apparently couldn’t wait to hold his baby in his arms, walked right to the cot where the baby, who was on oxygen was lying and made it rain 100 naira notes on the little one.
The video drew a lot of backlash, with many fans stating that he went too far by spraying money on a small child.
Reacting, an Instagram follower @nimhs.xx wrote, “My own is you should have hugged that woman, and let her know how much you appreciate her not this ur 100notes from yaba”.
@uyiosaimade, “This is very insensitive. What happened to spraying your wife, can’t you see that she is in so much pain? Orishirishi mtsheeew”.
@nosa_reeds, “And there’s a nurse right there??? Spraying a newborn that isn’t vaccinated yet with those dirty notes??? Money actually doesn’t come with wisdom”.
