Beautiful mansions supposedly located in Anambra state have set social media on fire as people used them as examples to show that Igbo men are wealthy.
Trendy conversations online around the show of wealth aligned with the popular argument that though Forbes and Bloomberg may not rate Igbo men, there are big money bags.
The house trended just as SpaceX founder, Elon Musk, unseated Jeff Bozos to become the richest man in the world.
Photos of the luxurious houses were first posted by a Twitter handle @Waynetipsy who captioned them with:
"Igbo men don’t joke with their village mansions!!!"
About 24 hours after the shared photos went viral, another social media user with the handle @yungruffdad shared more photos, some of which bore similarities to the earlier posted ones, and said:
"Woke up to our house trending. Anambra Igbo men."
Claiming the building is 'their' house, the young man then shared a YouTube video from a page under the name "yungruffad" that gave some tour of the luxurious house.
Watch the video below:
It should, however, be noted that at the time of writing this report, Legit.ng cannot authoritatively say where the buildings are cited or who owns them as both handles are aliases.
Read some of the comments the buildings generated online:
"Omo this thing be like blood money."
"I passed this house this evening. Around Nnobi, right? The fence is wonderful. I was staring like crazy."
"Wow, Yh Nnobi."
"I can sweep car garage dear."
"God will not let you in Jesus name, AMEN."
"If no be Anambra.. I no dey marry.. Lol.. Them be things oO.. Money and success runs in the DNA."
Meanwhile, it was earlier reported that a Twitter user with the name Drift sensei got the whole of Twitter talking as he shared pictures of him posing with his father’s Rolls Royce.
When Twitter User ChiefpresitofPh asked him in amazement if his father has two Rolls Royce, the young man replied and corrected him that they are actually three; two ghosts and 1 wraith.
