A Nigerian man was short of words when he saw a fine Mercedes Benz car being used as a cab in Europe.
Painted in the popular yellow colour, the man filmed a fleet of cars parked by the roadside, saying what yahoo boys seek after is nothing in Europe.
In a video shared by @instablog9ja, the man added that people who drive such cars in Nigeria need to be humble as the same automobile is not that socially valued abroad.
