The Toy, a popular 80s movie, was about a spoilt rich white kid who buys a black man (played by Richard Pryor). Now there is a real life story: Wallace Turnquist purchased Ezekiel Akpu-nku from Nigeria as a playmate and servant for this 13-year-old son, Skyler.

“Last year I took Sky on a hunting safari to Africa and he was delighted by the African people,” Wallace Turnquist told WSB-TV. “How funny they were, how they were always smiling and so eager to please. At first he just wanted to take one, but I told him kidnapping was illegal. So instead, I bought him one.”

Since slavery and human trafficking are illegal, Turnquist gave Ezekiel a five year employment contract that pays $1,000 per year plus room/board, one day off per month and unlimited snacks. Ezekiel’s contract states that he must do whatever Skyler tells him to do so long as it is not illegal.

“This one time I made him stand on one foot for the entire day,” Skyler Turnquist said. “I also made him eat a spider. He does whatever I say. He’s the best toy ever.”

“I’m very happy to be Skyler’s toy, ” Akpu-nku said. “In Africa I was starving, here, in the land of opportunity, my belly never goes hungry.”

Turnquist said Skyler already wants another “African toy” but his father has said no this time.

“I don’t want Sky getting spoiled. If I buy him another African, he’ll just want more. I think owning one African is enough.
