When she posted the video in early May, she lamented the high exchange rate for naira to CFA.

Her words:

"The exchange rate for the Franc CFA right now is another crazy thing that would make you spend more than double of what you’re meant to spend. Please hold your Yellow Fever Vaccination card, if you’re using your passport. Cost Summary: Stamping my virgin passport cost N4,000 in Benin Republic and 4,000 CFA (N8,880) in Togo. Transport was N5,000 to Benin Republic (bike from Badagry), then 9,000 CFA (N19,980) into Lome."
