The clip captured the children having a seemingly good time, sparking a debate on the concept of community parenting. Many Nigerians criticized the hotel management for allowing children to use their rooms without proper supervision and called for stricter age verification protocols for prospective guests.
The viral video showcased the girl wearing a crop top and blank pants, while her male companion flaunted his meal.

The video was initially shared on Twitter by @_favorite_ada, who raised questions about the whereabouts of the children’s parents. Lola Okunrin, another Twitter user, expressed deep disgust regarding the incident and emphasized the significance of community parenting. He stated:
“This is why I will forever love community parenting. Let’s say the parents of these two failed, what about the staff of the hotel? The moment they entered and asked for a key, there should have been an adult holding their ears, metaphorically speaking, guiding and correcting them. This is a missed opportunity.”
The video has sparked a broader discussion on the importance of responsible parenting and the role that communities, including hotel staff, play in ensuring the well-being and safety of children. Many social media users expressed their concerns, calling for increased vigilance and guidance to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future.
