A Nigerian man is finding it hard to pay his house rent and came online to lament.
After he posted a video on TikTok, sympathetic netizens started asking him how much his rent was.
He explained in the post’s comment section that the rent was N120k.
The man was sitting on a motorcycle with a sad face as he munched on a snack.
In his caption, he said he had no idea how he would go home and explain to his landlord that he could still not find the money.
Sharing the video, @legacyobarapper6, wrote in Pidgin English:
