Nigerian award-winning actress and former model, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde seems to be feeling the current changes in Nigeria as she revealed what came as a surprise to her after she went to the market to buy pepper.
The celebrity took to her Instagram story to share the photo of the 500 naira pepper she bought and if you ask me, that pepper is very small in quantity. After counting the seeds of the tomatoes and scotch pepper in the photo she shared, I found out that the tomatoes were just 5, while the scotch pepper seeds were less than 20 and that is what she bought for 500 naira. See the photo the celebrity shared below.
While I know that truly pepper has become really expensive, I believe that where the celebrity bought the pepper must have influenced the quantity of the pepper a lot. For example, buying fresh tomatoes and scotch pepper on the Lagos Island will be very expensive compared to coming down to the major local markets in the Lagos mainland areas.
I know some people may be thinking that Omotola Jolade is rich and should not be complaining over 500 naira pepper, I believe that she is not complaining for herself, she is complaining on behalf of the common men in Nigeria.
The 43 year old actress who could not believe her eyes blamed the country for the situation. She said that that is what Nigeria has become as every commodity has become so expensive to buy. However, in what would be like a piece of advice from me, I think the celebrity should always buy her pepper from the mainland. I know it may be really difficult for her to walk in the Lagos mainland markets because of her popularity and this is why she should always find someone to run the errands for her.
What is your take on the quantity of pepper bought by the celebrity, is the quantity worth the price or the celebrity paid more money for less pepper? Let us know your thought in the comment section below.
