An artisan has said that if his mother knew what he will grow up to become, she would probably have reacted differently at birth.
According to the Nigerian man, when she gave birth to him, she was very happy without realising that he would become a carpenter in future.
He was having a conversation with a client while doing a carpentery work the person hired him to do.
The man who filmed him as he made the comment could be heard laughing when the artisan said; The time wey my mother born me in dey rejoice say e don born pikin, in no know say na carpenter wey im born”
He further made jest of himself by saying that his mum would have been thinking she gave birth to a doctor or lawyer, only for them to be hit with a reality check.
The artisan said if his mum knew that he would become a carpenter when he becomes an adult, she would have thrown him into a river as a child.

Most social media users did not find the carpenter’s comment funny as they stated that it was a honourable job which some people have used to become comfortable.

swimpronigeria; A lot of people have low self esteem in this country from the comments that I am seeing. If you know how much Carpenters make in this Lagos. There is Carpenter and there is CARPENTER. Choose wisely.
bimbolatoks_; Sick mindset. A whole lot of people are poor just cos they have a lazy mindset, not Lazy physically. The moment u see what u are doing as what can’t take u anywhere, you are obviously going to fail. I AM A CARPENTER AND I HAHE MADE A LOT OF PEOPLE SEE HOW BIG THE FURNITURE INDUSTRY IS.
dr_omomurewa; Self-esteem problems. People see u the way you see yourself. There are people who started from ordinary carpentry into big furniture brands! You can do it too…plus na our country wey no good, if you r in the same business abroad, you are a rich man!
