You deliberately ignored the birthday, rather than forgot it. Anyhow, your dad sounds like a selfish and irresponsible man, who hardly deserves to expect fond birthday good wishes. Don't you think i's a bit insulting to Africans when people suggest your should ignore such wildly irresponsible and careless ( and uncaring ) behaviour by saying "it's African" --- that was not part of the traditions of any African group or peoples.
