Nigerian lady celebrates building house
Meanwhile, THETALK.NG earlier reported that a Nigerian lady had celebrated constructing her own house.
The lady (@taiyeesefavourposed) stood in front of the building after it had been painted. To show people that she is indeed the owner of the property, she shared a photo of the signed land document in her name.
Though the compound of the building had not been floored, the property looked amazing. People were inspired by her success.
