I don’t think many people, especially Nigerians, would ever take the “buy Nigerian to grow the Naira” phrase seriously; all thanks to outrageously priced home-made items.
Some Twitter users recently shared screenshots of the ridiculous amounts they were charged by Instagram tailors for outfits.
According to one, an Instagram seller informed her it will cost her N85,000 to sew an Ankara jacket. The seller later reduced the price to N75,000!
Another Twitter user, Oluchi, also shared screenshots of her chat with an IG tailor after she enquired about how much it will cost her to sew an Ankara gown. The tailor charged her N70,000 for sewing excluding the material.
See the screenshots below…
Isn’t it ridiculous!?
