Big Brother Naija reality star, Doyinsola Anuoluwapo David, commonly known as Doyin, has shared her unique perspective on Nigeria’s current economic challenges, stating that she has not experienced them firsthand.

In a recent podcast interview with YouTuber Olufemi Daniel, Doyin revealed that she is quite detached from the everyday realities of most Nigerians. “I am the most detached Nigerian you can ever meet. I don’t even know what is happening. I don’t know the price of anything. I don’t go to the market. I send my chef and they don’t tell me what the price is,” she explained.

Despite her detachment, Doyin expressed sympathy for the plight of ordinary Nigerians. “I hear there’s hardship in the country and I sympathize with Nigerians. I’m sure that it’s tough. I know because wigs are more expensive. Makeup, nails, cars, houses, everything is more expensive. Those things I know. But I’m not really into tomatoes… I’m sure food is expensive.”

Doyin recounted a particular experience that highlighted the suffering of many Nigerians. “It’s sad because people are suffering, I’m sure because we see things on social media. I also went to the market one time at Ogba, and I cried that day because I saw how people were suffering. People were reacting to N50,000 like it was N5 million. That shows how badly people are suffering.”

Reflecting on the broader situation, Doyin expressed hope for a better future where basic needs are met. “It’s very sad. We hope that we’ll have a country one day where the average Nigerian can at least feed. That should be the basics. But we are not there yet. I hope we get there one day.”

Doyin also shared her candid views on Nigeria’s leadership. “I just think Nigeria is a shithole with this kind of leadership. The issue is that the people that are obligated to care about us don’t care about us. I don’t know that there would be a solution anytime soon. So I tell people do your best to fend for yourself and family and if you have the opportunity to relocate abroad, do.”
