“My father-in-law is taking me to see all my husband’s land. Na boys I born for the house no be girls. E no easy to see woman like me o. As a woman without a male child, keep praying harder.”
The video, which was uploaded to TikTok and subsequently shared across various social media platforms, quickly gained traction, attracting both support and condemnation from users.
