Ibrahim Suleiman, the popular Nigerian actor, has talke about why it is not always good to tease people with their weakness.
The actor who shared an experience with a friend, said people teased him about not knowing how to drive.

Suleiman tweeted; “Met someone recently (M.43) who can’t drive, and has never tried to learn. He was getting proper teased about it and we were all having a good laugh, but I noticed his unease. Later that day, I asked him what the real story was.
“Apparently, when he was 15 years old, He was involved in a ghastly car crash that saw 2 childhood friends not make it. It has scarred him deeply. Not everyone chooses to not do things like most people. I apologised to him for teasing him when everyone else was, and made sure to hint the others to avoid the topic.
“I cannot swim. Something happened when I was much younger (don’t want to go into detail) and it has made me averse to being fully submerged in water. I get teased about it a lot. I just laugh it off, because, personality. But not everyone can laugh off trauma. Let us be kind.”
