Na two families you de feed – Nigerian man stirs reactions as he posts photo of food bill his cook sent to him
After posting a picture of the menu and costs his cook sent him for a week’s worth of food, a Nigerian businessman sparked a furor on the internet.
The bill for the week’s worth of stew and vegetable soup was sent to him by the cook.
The list mentioned the following prices a kilogram of turkey was priced at N7,000, chicken at N6,000, fish at N6,000, cow leg at N6,000 per kilogram, ponmo (cow skin) at N2,000 per kilogram, stockfish at N1,500, pepper at N1,000, crayfish at N1,000, palm oil at N1,500, vegetable oil at N1,500, Maggi seasoning at N500, tomato at N3,000, spice at N500, and vegetables at N2,000.
The total cost of the ingredients amounted to a staggering N40,500.
He wrote; “Cook sends me a bill for Stew and vegetable soup for this week. A stark reminder that Food inflation in Lagos is higher than in the Nation. All eyes on the @cenbank and their inflation targeting going forward #food #inflation #costofliving.”
However, netizens who saw the list insisted that the prices listed by his cook seemed highly inflated. Following this, the cook surprisingly reduced the price amidst the Twitter backlash and probing she received.
In response to the online backlash, Rotus Oddiri shared an update with his followers.
He wrote; “PRICE UPDATE: Cow leg sellers aren’t around on Sunday (in this area anyway) so we removed that. After sharing Twitter comments with my cook, the Chicken price has magically come down, same for Turkey and Fish.”
