How often do you spend your life savings on an item but forget to double-check its authenticity? Wait, we have gone too far!
A campus girl buying a fifth hand dress from Kajja (down town), will check it over ten times to ensure she is not taking home a torn or worn-out product.
While you do that to a cheap dress that has been worn by may be over 10 people, some dead, others alive, it is easy for a fashion critic Bettinah Tianah to pull out her credit card and pay Shs2.8 million for a fake shoe.
#FinePeopleFromUganda I need a refund bruh how didn’t I notice that this shoe retailer repped me off 2.8M for BALEMCYAGA ? this is the reason why I only buy my shoes from the Uk, #LastMinuteShoppingIsTheWorst #MyCapeTownTripDidThisToMe pic.twitter.com/hRVK7dGqot

You know that Nonia for Nokia, iSone for Iphone Chinese counterfeit phone stuff? Yes, NTV style project’s Bettinah Tianah, who spends her Friday evenings critiquing people’s outfits, could not tell that she was buying Balemcyiaga, instead of a Balenciaga shoe!
“#FinePeopleFromUganda I need a refund bruh how didn’t I notice that this shoe retailer reaped me of 2.8M for BALEMCYAGA this is the reason why I only buy my shoes from the Uk, #LastMinuteShoppingIsTheWorst #MyCapeTownTripDidThisToMe,” reads her post.
We are also wondering why it took her this long to notice a fake shoe! Well, they say you can take a person from the village, but can’t take a village from them.
Just don’t be ‘repped’!
