A Nigerian man based in the United States has shared images of a market in Queens, New York, which looks exactly like Ladipo market in Lagos state.
With his tweet, the man identified as Ike Agụata is suggesting that despite the portrayal of the United States as a country with beautiful structures and environment, there are dirty places Hollywood does not show to the world.
Aguata with the Twitter handle @Ike_Obiora captioned the images:
“I found Ladipo Market Extension here. Same “ndị Ọsọ afịa”, same bad looking environment. No difference at all. Felt like I was in Lagos.”
Nigerians on Twitter took to the comment section of the post to share their thoughts and one of the tweeps noted that there is a place in Dubai that is exactly like Ladipo market.
