    • USELESS PARENTS, USELESS TRADITON, USELESSS AND MUMU GOATS CALLED PARENTS. I SWEAR ANY BODY DO THIS TO ME WHEN I GROW I MUST MAKE SURE I STAB THE BASTARD!!! WE STILL REMAIN IN DAKRNESS, THIS MARK WOULD MAKE ALOT OF THINGS GO WRONG WITH THE BABY WHEN HE GROWS,, LADIES WOULD NOT LIKE HIM, THEY WOULD MOCK AT HIM IN THE SCHOOL BY HIS MATE INFAT A WHOLE LOT.

  1. Make police be arrested them. What a sin thing? Why is pipul wicked to pikin? Some pipul are wanting pikins but is not borning. But this pipul is borning and is carve am with razor.

  2. whats the use of it..by now we should all have state ID cards or National ID cards.
    they ruined this fine boi face.
    brown roof republicans been tribal marking babies from time immemorial.
    useless afonjas

  3. this is wickedness in 2016 tribal marks,that cute baby boy ,who will marry him,only is rich,i think we yoruba dont do that backward tradition again ,in 2016.

  4. It is very difficult to fight an idea and the people still carrying out this kind of practice need to be convinced that there is no gain and come to think of it no retribution from ancestors if that aspect of the culture is done away with.perhaps approaching the issue by Telling them that now most people do not put marks on faces any longer the child will take a lot of teasing from his peers and feel miserable while growing up. The love for the child might stop parents marking their faces rather than being confrontational in trying to make them stop the reactive.if they are not persuaded of their own volition, parents might even claim the mark has some spit itual benefit and trying to stop them will now be viewed as religious discrimination against their tribe.
    I remember a remark I once heard somebody make that she wished she could put to birth a fair complexioned baby girl so she could put these marks that look like someone writing one hundred and eleven on the child’s cheeks. That wish was made out of sheer vanity because the lady considered those marks sexy and that it would make the child more beautiful. She never considered the child’s possible resentment at being marked at all.

    I think it is only education of the parents that can stop them rather than prosecution in court.

  5. This is so pathetic, why do people refuse to move with time.
    This baby is a girl though(check her pierced earlobe.)

  6. It is terrible what parents can do!
    The blasfemy here is: if such cuts are made on the Penis of a boy and the foreskin (which is important and belongs to the Things God called “very good” after creations, made with more nervcells than any other part in the body) everbody will praise it! One cannot abbondan above and the same time cut his boys sexual organ and amputate a big part of the skin!!
