There are better rooms and apartments in Lekki, Lagos state, some Nigerians insist after seeing a photo of a one-room apartment in London. But others say landlords in Lagos learn from their counterparts in London in terms of small rooms that are costly.
A photo shared on Twitter by one resident of London captures what some rooms in the city look like. The photo shared by the man shows that there is a kitchen in a wardrobe, which to some Nigerians, is quite unusual.
