A Nigerian mother in the UK was surprised when her daughter showed her a yam tuber that cost N4,000.
The daughter posted the video on TikTok and claimed that she gave her mother a lesser conversion rate.
She held out the tuber and said it cost £6.99 (N4k) on the video, doing a lower conversion to Naira.
I no chop abeg
When her mother saw the yam, she was amazed at the price and compared it to her seedlings at home.
The woman was even more shocked when the lady displayed her pumpkin leaves (ugwu leaves), which she had purchased for £2 (N1,127).
Netizens agreed with the older woman as they shared prices of yam in Nigeria.
