Oluwadolarz’s mom cries over tomatoes and fresh pepper

In a video shared online, Oluwadolarz’s mother revealed that she spent N10,000 (ten thousand naira) on a small quantity of tomatoes and fresh pepper. She explained that she was traveling from Ibadan and decided to stop at Mile 12 market in Lagos to buy the produce. To her dismay, the amount she spent only got her a few tomatoes and peppers.

She recalled that these same items used to cost around N2,000 before Nigeria’s economic situation worsened. The significant price increase left her in shock and disappointment.
