Kemi Adetiba, who is a movie director, has shared the effect which epileptic power supply in Nigeria had on her when she traveled to New York.
According to a tweet, she revealed that the sound of blaring sirens in New York City made her almost shout “Up NEPA”, a term Nigerians say when the Power Holding Company of Nigeria finally restore electricity after hours of switching it off.
The sound of blaring sirens sounds more like an alarm which generator users have at home that alerts them when power gets restored so they can switch off their generator and switch over to PHCN electricity.
Kemi Adetiba tweeted:
“Heard sirens and my mind immediately went, “Nonsense people… They’ve finally brought light.”
This just shows the degree of my mental and emotional abuse living in Lagos.
I say this because… 1.) I was watching TV at the time.
2.) I’m currently in NYC.”
