An Igbo girl has narrated a bit of the ordeal she’s been facing in search of an apartment in Lagos State.
In a series of tweets, the light-skinned lady revealed that she got turned down by the wife of the landlord to a house she almost rented because her complexion is the exact spec the landlord loves.
“Yoruba people really don’t hide their tribalism at all. Lmao. Paid for an apartment, and while the man wanted to sign agreement, he realized I was Igbo and I’m getting a refund tomorrow. Lmao.
“One landlord accepted I can rent his apartment, the wife called the agent to tell me not to bother paying. That I’m his husbands spec and she doesn’t want me to ruin her marriage. Lmao.
“I actually have lots of stories to tell about house hunting as a single light skin Igbo girl in Lagos… I used to cry but now I laugh cos I cannot be stressed in Jesus name.
