Lady laments after spending N180k on asoebi
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that asoebi is a uniform dress traditionally worn in Nigeria and some West African cultures as an indicator of cooperation and solidarity during ceremonies and festive periods. It has become quite popular in Nigeria and the cost continues to rise as the years go by.
Well, not everyone is a big fan of the amount of money spent on asoebi. Identified as Jennifer on Twitter, an investment banker revealed that she spent a total of N180,000 for asoebi including the cost of the fabric which was N19,000, makeup and transportation to the event.
She went on to advise ladies not to get on the asoebi trend especially if they can turn it down.
