Social media users have been reacting to a viral video where a smart water closet is being sold on the Ghanaian market.
Users on the X platform have been perplexed by the WC’s selling price, which is estimated to be over GH360,000 after it was uploaded by media personality, Serwaa Amihere.
She was barefoot in the video as she demonstrated how the smart toilet functioned. She pointed out that, unlike ordinary toilets, it does not require any touching because it is equipped with sensors.
“It has WiFi, actually. For those of you who like to make decisions when you’re on the toilet.”
Serwaa Amihere used her feet to hover over the sides of the toilet and the lid opened. She repeated it, and the lid lifted up. She also covered the toilet using the same approach.
“You don’t need to touch anything. You just need to get close to it, and then it will close by itself.”
One user on the platform called Ibrahim Issifu, questioned the actual price tag of the WC after he conducted a search online which showed that the water closet sells at $9,937,50 [GH¢113,770.44], a rather stark difference from the price being quoted in Ghana.
Some users have also made mockery of the features associated with the WC, which include WiFi, motion sensor and among others.
