Popular OAP, Tolu Oniru-Demuren, has revealed an ill-concealed secret of some social media “big spenders”.
Toolz took to Twitter to express deep shock after discovering that some people buy empty designer bags and boxes to flaunt on social media.
The mother of two, who couldn’t hide her disbelief, shared a snapshot of a South African brand on Instagram advertising original Louis Vuitton packaging.
She shared the photo and wrote,
“People are now buying empty designer boxes to flex on the gram.”
