A young man with the Twitter handle @KelvinOssai has got the attention of many people on social media after he posted videos of him bathing his son.
The man captioned one of the videos with:
"When this boy grows up, y'all are my witness. I baf am."
In a subsequent video, the man dressed up the baby as a nursing mother would. His videos came as a surprise to many as it is not every day one sees a father who knows how to tend to an infant.
Many people said that the bond between the father and the kid will become very strong with what he is doing.

Meanwhile, it was earlier reported that a Nigerian lady, Tolulope Adeleke-Aire, was changing the norm and teaching men things the traditional society would not expect of them.
She broke the cultural barrier by teaching men how to bathe and care for their babies without having to leave everything to the mothers.
The nurse organised a baby bathing session for men under a canopy, using toys as examples. Tolu also showed them how to change a kid’s diapers and oil their head like a nursing mother would do.
