A Nigerian man has taken to social media to open up on one of the kind gestures he did for love which made him feel like a fool.
Alex Oluwatobi recounted when he was studying at the University of Ibadan and he got information that his girlfriend fell sick.
He said that he immediately rushed to her hostel with Lucozade, Ribena – which was her favourite drink, and drugs in a bid to nurse her back to health.
He, however, later found out that it was because her other boyfriend, whom he did not knw about, had broken her heart.
Oluwatobi said his friends started making fun of him with the label ”Caretaker” and that experience messed with his head for a long time. He also said that after the entire incident he later fell sick because of the effect of the revelation.
He wrote; “One time in UI, I got a call that my babe wasn’t feeling fine; I rushed to her hostel with drugs, lucozade boost and ribena (her favorite drink).
Never knew my supposed babe was sick because she was served breakfast by another guy. This messed with my head for a very long time.
My paddies were calling me “Caretaker” that year. It’s a long story but mehnnn…. Me sef come fall sick after the whole revelation. Ife ya weyrey gan, I am glad we could all laugh about it now.”
