Via Dare's post: Define: Servant, I came to find out that some of my Nigerian brethren did not take kindly to his description of the fellow in the picture below as a "servant".  Check out http://naijaman.cfmxdeveloper.co.uk/diary/2007/04/objs-cribs.html and http://grandioseparlor.com/2007/04/a-presidential-servant/

Should his picture have called the gentleman a "houseboy" or  something kinder?  Should he have not shown the picture at all? I might have taken umbrage to the picture taking if Dare hadn't also taken pictures to show the other end of the spectrum - affluency, which he is a member of.  What interests me the most is that a Presidential servant actually lives in such conditions.  How come?  What's the excuse?  That things could be worse for him?  Could this be his Aso Rock?

Dare, hope you left him with enough "pocket money".

I did read this post, that's what led to my post actually.

"member of my dad's domestic staff" is laughable at best.
