London market with a touch of Lagos

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a Nigerian woman made a video of a market in Packham Rye Lane that looked very much like a local trading centre in Nigeria.

In the clip, wares were displayed on the floor, and the environment bears striking similarities to any popular Lagos market with the way buying and selling activities were going on.

Similarly, a young lady with the TikTok handle @choplife_advocate shared a clip showing a very popular market, Barking, that looked like a busy scene in Lagos state.

Filming the UK market, the lady said that the place bears a striking semblance to Oyinbo market in Ebute Meta, Lagos.
