Baba Wande is a typical African dad - Nigerian man

The video of Baba Wande's reaction after receiving the cash donation from fans drew a reaction from a Nigerian writer, Adeyinka Odutuyo, who shared his thoughts with Legit.ng. He said:

"I don’t think it’s a question of being right or pride. If anything, he’s only shown what a typical African dad would do when they get unsolicited gifts.
In this case, the gift, no matter well-intentioned, was unsolicited and I don’t think he’s wrong to want to have context, considering Afod mentioned it was a donation from fans.
At least, the fans must have heard, seen, or been told something before voting to give him money."
