Why I Never Buy Things In Nigeria – BBNaija Star, Kim Oprah Spills


Big Brother Naija All Stars house guest and media personality Chinonso Ibinabo Opara, known as Kim Oprah, has opened up on why she doesn’t buy things in Nigeria.

The reality star’s disclosure about not purchasing anything in the country comes amid outcry on the increase in fake consumer goods in markets and stores nationwide.

Recall that an X user, @Aimalohi6, had alerted Nigerians to a soy sauce brand that has seen a spike in knockoffs lately.

The tweet read in part,

“New discovery there is AMOY, AMOYS, AMOI, AMQY, AMOY’c oyster sauce, sesame oil, and soy sauce brands in Nigeria. The original brand is AMOY without the s. Every other brand is fake; good stores are selling the fakes. No idea where to get the original.”

The post gained traction on Monday, with several Nigerians sharing pictures of dupes they bought from supermarkets.

Taking to her X account, Kim said she stopped buying anything down to personal effects after realising that everything sold here was mostly fake. She added that she mainly purchases products when out of the country.

She further called for God’s intervention.

She wrote;

“Let me make this clear.. I thank God for exposure; that’s why I never buy things in Nigeria down to my personal effects… I figured out a while ago that everything being sold here is mostly fake, and I care about health, so i only purchase my products when i travel .. God save us in this country.”

The trend of fake goods being marketed as original has continued to raise concerns in recent times.

Earlier this month, Nigerian Afrobeats singer BNXN threatened to call out certain clubs serving fake drinks.

Respect my health, respect my money. Give me what I pay for. If you don’t have it, don’t bring a fake one. The next club or lounge that does this to me, I promise I will take that microphone from the hypeman and let you know,”

he tweeted.

Last week, National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) officials shut down the Cemetery Market in Aba, Abia State, arresting over ten suspects involved in producing adulterated beverages.
