Oyinbo marketed Nigerian food items
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a TikTok user shared a video that looks relatively old where an oyinbo man who sells food told a customer the kind of meals available.
In the clip, the businessman with his apron on told the man that there is rice, semo, and garri; all of which are Nigerian dishes.
When the man asked further, he added that there is okro soup to go with it. Many people were surprised at how he pronounced the names of the food items despite the fact that he is not a Nigerian.
