Looking back now, its funny when one realizes many people had to pay for email addresses, yet now even a blind man wouldnt pay a kobo for an email address.
Eight years ago, I got my first yahoo email address. I first went to Ikeja Plaza and a business center there charged me N1500, I was an undergraduate then and just couldnt afford that. Some days after I was passing by Yaba Tech, when I saw a business center on the ground floor of where Edysly Bookshop is located. The banner there read "Get your email address for N500" I rushed home and went to quickly raise the N500.
Imagine N500 for a Yahoo email address, but it was a bargain I couldnt resfuse.
So if you got your email address when the Internet was still very young in Nigeria, how much did you pay?
