A leaked Instagram chat has ignited mixed reactions on social media between a Nigerian father and his 20-year-old daughter, who is purportedly a student at Nasarawa Polytechnic.
In the leaked conversation, the daughter asked for his father for finacial upkeep that could sustain her upkeep.
In a surprising turn of events, the father responds harshly, advising his daughter to resort to selling her body for money, using local parlance for such actions.
He added that her mates were buying houses for their parents while she was bothering them.

The leaked chats triggered diverse reactions among netizens.
@cacagents suggested, “Probably his father married another woman, not an appropriate response from a great father, but I don’t have the whole information; may she find help or a way out.”
@naturalboifilmz characterized it as a “typical African dad,” criticizing the lack of empathy, emotional intelligence, and accountability, stating, “Whenever I see this kind of father, I can’t thank God enough for how lucky I am. May your soul rest in peace, DAD.”
@bright___r questioned the responsibility of parents, saying, “If you can’t take care of a child, why bring them into the world? Some African parents need to learn to cater for their children; that’s your responsibility! Nobody forced you to birth a child!”
@Jessica_Egbedi expressed dismay, questioning the impact of a meager sum, “God have mercy… What can 4k do for someone in a month?”
@salawueedris1 expressed gratitude for their late father, acknowledging his efforts, “Alhamdulilah for my late father. He tried his best. May Almighty Allah forgive his shortcomings and grant him Al janah Fridaus.”
@Denix001 humorously remarked on the father’s writing skills but criticized his mentality, saying, “Your father writes well, he even uses his punctuation marks correctly, but he has the ‘follow man or do ashewo’ mentality and can’t provide for you? Dey play.”
