A man whose video went viral for making interesting Yoruba proverbs has spoken in a documentary done by a brilliant Nigerian videographer, Ayo Adams.
In a short interview, Oriogbade who is going through a lot said that he dropped out of school because of a proverb he made which got to his teacher.
My teacher didn’t like my proverbs
After he and his classmates were all given an assignment to bring five proverbs each, one of the ones he submitted went:
“A teacher collects salary and complained, what does he want a prisoner to do?
Are they not both serving the government?” (paraphrased). His teacher found the proverb very offensive, and he was thrown out.
Rich in proverb, poor financially.
During the interview, the man responded to most of his questions with very meaningful proverbs.
While trying to calm one of his children, he told her that their hard life would not last forever, and things would change.
The man who seriously needs help from Nigerians said he could not send his children to school due to a lack of money.
