Media personality, Yomi a.k.a YomYom, is of the opinion that spending N1 million on a mobile phone in Nigeria is ridiculous.
In what seems like a reaction to the newly released iPhone 13 which is currently selling for N900k-N1.1 million, Yomi opined that the price is absurd.
According to him, there is no justification for spending so much on a phone, regardless of the features and specification.
“Under no circumstances is “N1 million” for a phone in Nigeria not ridiculous.
I don’t care what the features are.”
Yomi’s tweet has generated mixed reactions on social media. Some netizens agreed with his stance while others argued that the phone is not targeted at the masses, but elites.

That’s why you see them using latest phones with zero resources. Begging from obi to Ada. Fake package”
