The act of beating a birthday celebrant has been a trending culture among Nigerian youths in higher institutions. While many does not engage in such acts, those who does it believes the birthday celebrant needs to cry because he cried the day he was born.
They also fall victims of a “revenge order” whereby those whom the current birthday celebrant had beaten or punished are waiting for his own birthday to get their revenge.
The act remains condemned by many Nigerians as birthday remains a day of joy not a day to cry or be beaten.
