“How can you win a medal and sell it to oyinbo for N4K” – Man calls out athlete


A young Nigerian man calls out an athlete who sold his medal to an oyinbo man for N4K at the Lagos City Marathon on Saturday.

On the 10th of February, the 42km Lagos City Marathon was held at the National Stadium in Surulere and ended at the Eko Atlantic City.

A Kenyan runner clinched the first position and won the grand prizeof $50,000, while two other Kenyan athletes won second and third place also and received $30,000 and $20,000 respectively.

One of the other participants who simply won a medal for their effort caught the attention of many after selling it to a caucasian man for N4K.

In a now-viral video, the athlete who sold his medal got called out for putting effort into a race only to sell the result cheaply.

“Nigerians with their characters. Imagine selling your medal fo 4K, what a shame. After running and investing effort in the race,” a fellow participant in the video stated.

The video has since generated a wave of reactions from users who likened it to the slave trade era in Africa.
