This is sad... After the almighty photo contest, the winner was given a Samsung NX300 Camera worth ₦85,995 on Jumia. Did Samsung ever consider what it took to get over 1000 to vote (the voting process was even cumbersome cos you need to check your mail and click on a link for confirmation) and for a non lagosian, how much it takes to travel to Lagos. I don't think this is worth being talked about.
