A viral video of a mum getting a wig installed on her baby has caused a stir from Nigerians on social media.

In the video, which found its way to the internet and stirred reactions from social media, the little girl, who appears to be no more than one year old, is seen crying while her mum and a stylist try to install on her head a frontal wig.

The adults around her ignored the baby’s cry, which suggested that the wig made her uncomfortable, and continued to style the wig. After they successfully styled her hair, they put her down to pose for the camera.

Reacting to the video, many Nigerians lambasted the baby’s mother and the people who installed the wig. Trooping to the comment section, people urged parents to allow their ‘kids be kids’.

An Instagram user @teeto__olayeni wrote, “Let children be children for Christmas sake 🙄 😒”.

@svelte_sal, “I wish there were social services in Nigeria, some people need their children taken from them for a while”.

@queen_aangiee, “See the scary looking wig sef🥺 why won’t you let a baby be a baby and rock her natural hair while she can🤦🏽‍♀️”.

@bakesandcrunchies, “Capital NO…. let a baby be a baby please. In this hot weather for crying out loud🤦🏼‍♀️”.
