16 photos that describe everything that could go wrong in computer village

Computer village in Ikeja is the biggest and buzziest hardware market in Nigeria. If you need to find stuff at the best rates, this is where you go.

There’s one thing you must know though, things could go wrong really quickly. And they will.

1. When you tell your guys you intend to spend only 30 minutes in computer village.

  1. Lmaoooo! OMG! I have tears in my eyes from laughing so hard! This is hilarious and best describes my fear of buying anything at computer village! If you must, NEVER go alone. They can’t pull the wool over your eyes and that of your tech savvy and street smart companions. Someone is bound to see the light!
    And for the love of all that is pure and true, LEAVE YOUR HEADPHONE AT HOME! Otherwise, thou shalt go with a phone and leave with fufu. ?
    Now that’s a steep price to pay for ‘lunch’, innit?
