Netizens have schooled veteran actor and filmmaker, Ugezu J Ugezu for kicking against the need for DNA.
The actor had taken to his Instagram page to chastise men who have formed the habit of undergoing paternity test before claiming a child.
With the daily news of men discovering at dying minutes that their kids aren’t biologically theirs, many men are becoming interested in DNA especially in Nigeria.
The growing increase in paternity test has become alarming for the Nollywood actor who doesn’t believe that African men should partake in it.
According to the actor, any child born to an African man is the African man’s child.
He opined that DNA stuff is tearing many homes apart and destroying innocent children.
“This DNA thing is not really an African thing. A child born to an African man is the African man’s child. Our fathers held this belief and enjoyed peace of mind. This DNA stuff is tearing many homes apart and destroying many innocent children In THINGS FALL APART, the Mother Earth rose against Okonkwo for killing the child who called him father. THINK”.
Nigerians have this to say,
