Deby Oscar, a TikToker, has shared a touching video online of two brothers reuniting after 33 years of being apart.
Her father and his brother had moved to different countries abroad in their twenties, before Facebook and mobile phones were around.
According to Deby, her father, who often visited Nigeria, and his brother missed each other due to their busy lifestyles. Being from a large family, coordinating a gathering with all of them was often difficult.
