Jigan Baba Oja educates his daughter about his disability
Jigan Baba Oja, a Nollywood actor is teaching his children how to live with a disability.
As a person who has been made a meme on social media because of his disability, he recently posted a video on his Instagram page explaining his situation to his daughter.
He wanted his kids to know his situation so they could avoid emotional distress from being ridiculed or trolled by their peers.
Jigan’s daughter is no longer a baby, and he felt it was the right time to have an open conversation about his trademark walk.
He advised his daughter to tell her friends that her father’s unusual gait is his signature style and that it brings in money for him.
“You are no longer a baby, let me give you this story before you come across it. In case, your classmates or your friends in school are asking you ‘Why is your daddy working like that?, Why is your daddy doing Tamurege?
“Tell them that’s your daddy’s logo. Tell them that the Tamurege is what is bringing money for my daddy”. He said.
Captioning the post, he wrote:
“Helping them to fight the trauma it can cause for them while growing up!”
