Nigerians are known to have a great sense of fashion and sometimes this also means they are willing to splash thousands or millions of naira on accessories that really appeal to them.
However, popular fashion brand Ambush appears to have scored low on the ranking of Nigerians following one of their fashion accessory which was put on display by fashion retail brand, Farfetch.
The accessory described as a Nobo clip earring on the fashion store’s website sells for a whopping sum of $440 which is almost N170k.
"This green Nobo clip earring from AMBUSH features a spring-closed design, a peg shape and an engraved logo. This is a single earring," the description for the pricey accessory read on the shopping website.
Nigerians who reacted could not help the fact that the said accessory is almost an exact replica to what a lot of homes use whenever they want to line their laundry.
