- A son has expressed love for his dad in a very special way as he recreated their throwback photo together
- According to the lovely child, the recreation was to celebrate his father's birthday
- Many people said though the photos show how their condition has changed, the dad still maintained his frown
A young Nigerian man with the Twitter handle @Duroarts_ has generated massive reactions on the platform after recreating an old photo.
The man said the recreation was to honour his father on his birthday. In the first frame, the dad stands arms akimbo as his son posed in a hippy style, pointing towards the camera.
The second picture, taken many years after, shows the two in the same pose but in a different house setting.
"Today’s my dads birthday, we recreated this."
As at the time of writing this report, his tweet has over 132,000 likes with more than 14,000 retweets.
Below are some of the reactions:
"The man don't smile huh! The transformation is epic though."
"You should have been exactly at the same spot. But things have changed thanks to God."
"Wow, nice concept."
"Wow. Adults don't even seem like they physically age over the years. Good to see."
"He no smile both first and second frame."
"I don't even have a small child picture with my dad."
"Your Dad resembles Ben Carson."
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za reported that a young man with the Twitter handle @Talldarkandfly has taken to the microblogging site to share how he recreated an event that happened in 1991 with a heartwarming photo of himself and his baby.
A similar picture was taken by @Talldarkandfly's dad in 1991 when the young man was given birth to.
@Talldarkandfly, who recreated the image in 2020 after giving birth to his own child, has a striking resemblance with his father.
As expected, tweeps took to the comment section of the post to share their opinion about both pictures. A Twitter user with the handle @BiyiThePlug wrote:
"I feel the person in the 2 pictures are the same, cos I’m still confused."
