Nigerian singer, Teniola Apata, known professionally as Teni, has declined buying a wristwatch overseas because of how much it cost.
She visited a luxury jewelry store in the United States and wanted to buy a gold crested time piece and she was informed that it is $29,500 (N183, 584,000).
The ”Billionaire” singer wondered if he meant $2,900 but he emphasised that it was Twenty Nine Thousand Five Hundred Dollars.

In other news, actress and herbal therapist, Kudirat Ogunro, also known as Kudi Alagbo, has urged married women to make peace with the fact that their husbands would have mistresses and girlfriend.
She asserted that 70 percent of men cheat on their wives, and the women need to come to terms with the reality that they are sharing their man with other women.
The thespian said a woman would have blissful and long-lasting marriage if she welcomes the idea of her hubby having side chics.
Kudi said; “These days, one (a woman) needs to have it at the back of one’s mind that at home, one’s husband could be ‘my bear’. But, when he is outside, he becomes, ‘our daddy’.
I believe that 70 per cent of men cheat; so for one’s sanity, one should know that a ‘side chic’ exists somewhere. By doing that, one can celebrate more blissful years in one’s marriage. This truth is bitter for some; but the earlier one knows it, the better for one’s mental health.”
She also dismissed claims and that all the women in the movie industry are being sponsored by sugar daddies.
The actress, however, said believes some actresses may depend on the kindness of people for survival but because of the nature of their work, everybody links their money to rich men.
She said; “I don’t belong to the school of thought that believes actresses depend on sugar daddies to meet their needs. Some may depend on helpers for assistance, but because most of us are in the limelight, any successful thing we do is usually linked to a sugar daddy.”
