“Why I Was Crying” – Funny Man Behind Viral Weeping Meme Speaks in Video (WATCH)
The Nigerian man with a crying face in a meme that has become an internet sensation has given reasons for his tears.
In a clip seen on Instagram by Legit.ng, the young man said he lost some money given to him to buy garri by his grandmother.
According to the young man, he wept because he was looking for someone to pity him and help replace the N200.
He said he used the N200 to play a game, hoping to win it back with interest, but unfortunately, he lost woefully.
