He recounted a situation in Onitsha where a friend attended a party and the host demanded that all adults pay for their meals, exempting children.

Ugezu emphasized that this practice contradicts Nigerian customs, where it’s traditionally unacceptable to invite guests to a celebration and charge them for food. He captioned the video: “It is not everything that we must learn.”
