A Nigerian man recently took to his Facebook page to thrill many to a story that is both hilarious and a vivid portrayal of a personal tragedy. The said individual took to narrating how he had been publicly disgraced amongst familiar faces all in the name of bragging about his ability.

According to the man identified as Ezinwa Nlewedim, his wife had earlier complained about his weight gain and how he was adding more flesh in undesired parts. Due to too much pressure coming from her, he decided to lose the weight by going to the gym regularly.

This was good in itself because, at the gym, Ezinwa learned a lot of minor acrobatic skills within the space of three months. In less than 3 months, he was could do these simple tricks. On election day, after having discussed quite a lot with the neighbours in his wife, he was persuaded to do one of the acrobatic stunts he had learned.

His wife advised him against this but he did not listen. With the aim of impressing his neighbours (especially the young ladies), he decided to do the stunt. His wife handed him a loose sportwear, and with that, he performed the action.

With his hands on the ground and his legs in the sky, Ezinwa expected that his neighbours will be wild with applause. Little did he know that they had shifted attention from him to something else. It was when the wind blew in an unusual direction that he knew.
