The female Nigerian skitmakers, Ashmusy, Nons_Miraj, among others in a video captioned, ‘POV: You go to dinner dressed like African mothers with your friends’, showed the female skitmakers in a restaurant eating like gluttons in what seem to portray the way ‘African mothers’ behave when they go on an outing.
