In recent times, gadgets have become something humans can't do without, and as a matter of fact, every Nigerian home has one, two or more to serve specific purposes.
It's no news that the average Nigerian loves acquiring gadgets, and why not? Gadgets, after all, help to make one's life easier and more fun. In this part of the world, the acquisition of a gadget- whether sophisticated or not- is sometimes seen as an accomplishment, as a result, people are likely to fill their homes with different gadgets of varying sizes, and capacity.
This article aims at revealing the top 10 gadgets that can be found in most of Nigeria's modern homes. I'm sure even you reading this piece right now has got one or all of these appliances.
1. SMART TV
Getting a TV is one of the first things that first come to one's mind when planning to set up a home. I'm sure you'll agree with me that in a modern era like this, it's almost impossible to see a home that lacks a Television, although owning a smart TV comes with an extra cost - which is why it is to be found mostly in modern homes.
2. CABLE TV DECODER
The days and era where people could only watch movies with a video cassette player or a VCD/DVD Player are long gone. With a cable tv decoder like DStv, Startimes, GOtv, amongst others, you can tune in to a movie channel and watch as many movies or music videos as you please.
3. SOUND SYSTEM
Sound systems have been around for a long time; the only difference between the systems of then and today is the quality of sound. The sound systems of this era are super-enhanced and theatrical. Some sound systems I've encountered in modern Nigerian homes are so equipped that when raised to the max, can shake the insides of a house.
4. WASHING MACHINE
As people get busier and busier by the day, it becomes necessary to turn to gadgets to help us with some tasks. Laundering is one of those tasks that people have little or no time to attend to, so they give the job over to a washing machine. A washing machine can be found in almost every modern Nigerian home, not just in the home of the rich and wealthy but also in the homes of people in the middle class and lower class.
5. AIR CONDITIONER (AC)
In a country like Nigeria where the temperature can sometimes get as high as 47.2 degrees Celcius, a ceiling or standing fan is never enough. An air conditioner is a necessity for most Nigerians as it helps keep their apartment cool during the hottest times of the year. For this reason, an air conditioner can be found installed in most modern Nigerian homes.
There you have it - the 5 appliances you'll find in every modern Nigerian home. So tell me, which of these appliances do you currently have in your home?
