- The snaps have been gathering comments from Nigerians as people shared photos of their cabinets and what they paid
A man identified as Oyindamola on Twitter has caused much buzz online after sharing photos of the piece a carpenter made for his friend.
The snaps showed a wooden work without a fine finish that looks much like a market table than a cabinet anyone should pay the sum of N15,000 for.
Oyindamola said the kitchen cabinet was meant for his friend's new apartment. While many Nigerians found the piece poorly made, some said that the person got exactly what he paid for.

"...Hian you will pay me back my money, no excuses. Does he think you want to fry yam and akara on the roadside?"
"Guy tell your friend to manage it o, things cost."
"With 15k you can make good carbinet with MDF wood."
"He brought it like this so that you can choose the design you want, this is just skeleton, go back and show him the design you've chosen."
"I did mine for 25k and it's beautiful... A year ago things are expensive now bro 15k is too small for a kitchen cabinet."
Making a post along that line on Friday, February 19, the man said that his carpenter made an entirely different thing from the photo he sent him.
The end product is a far cry from the sleek table design in the photo he sent him.
