Social media has been buzzing with reactions after a video surfaced of a man believed to be Nigerian in a verbal altercation with a US air hostess.
In most African societies, respecting one's elders is considered very important and proverbs like, "What the elders see sitting, the young one cannot see standing on an iroko tree" encourage this belief.
Currently trending on social media is a video of a Nigerian man on an aeroplane, getting into a verbal exchange with one of the air hostesses. While the gist of the issue remains unclear, the man could be heard asking, "Do you think I'm your mate?"
Watch the video below:
The video, which has since gone viral on the internet, left many social media users partly amused, and others annoyed by the man's behaviour as many described it as a sense of entitlement that continues to be abused by some.
