- An emerging video showing the interior of a Dubai apartment owned by a Nigerian in the Arab country has sparked mixed reactions on social media
- In the video, the apartment showed what is a far-cry from a place that prides itself as home to luxuries and affluence in all spheres
- A white rubber table, chair and bunk beds could be seen in the video amongst other items obtainable in an economic apartment
From being one of the choicest tourist destinations, to being home to magnificent architectural creations and automobiles, Dubai holds its pride of place in the league of beautiful cities.
It therefore comes as a surprise to many an emerging video capturing the interior of the apartment said to be resided by a Nigerian man.
This is because it is not a common sight in the media, a practice many first-world nations do to keep their public image and bragging rights intact perhaps.
In the video shared on Instagram by @saintavenue_ent1, several low-cost items were seen scattered in the room.
