The Nigerian Twittergsphere has been set abuzz after a man narrated how he left his wife who was in labour to hang out with friends to eat isiewu, a traditional Igbo delicacy prepared with goat head.


The Twitter user — who goes by the name Seun — had, in a celebratory post on his daughter’s first birthday, narrated events surrounding her birth.

In the post, Seun said it was while he was enjoying the local spicy delicacy with friends that his wife, who was in the hospital, called that she had successfully given birth.

“On this day 1 year ago, I was chilling with my brothers @shevyhez and @MaziIbe @jenrade3 when my wife called to say ‘I am through’. It wasn’t even up to 1 hour I left her at the hospital, in fact I was about to devour the isiewu in front of me,” he wrote.


“I replied saying ‘through ke, how?’ She reiterated “I’m through, come and carry your daughter,”…. ah omo I was so excited, I broke the news to my guys, the isiewu sef no gree go again, had to do take-away.

“I sped to the hospital, burst a tyre while I was trying to park. Lo and behold my star was out! It’s one year today and my star is 1. Happy birthday Oluwamayomide Zuriel Ojo.”


The tweet has since generated mixed reactions on the microblogging platform where some users tackled Seun for leaving his wife at such a crucial time to go hangout with friends.

How will you even be relaxed to the extent of wanting to eat isiewu when your pregnant wife is in labour? Do some of you actually love the people you married OR you just married them for the sake of it,” a Twitter user asked.

“Imagine your husband coming on the interwebs to tell the whole world that he abandoned you at the hospital WHILE YOU WERE IN LABOUR to go eat Isiewu with his friends, what sort of affliction and disgrace is this?,” another user asked.

Here is what some Nigerians had to say:
