An African student was left shocked after a racist landlord refused to rent her house because the food of Nigerians smell.

According to the student, Ebrima Mboob, who is from Gambia, the landlord who was initially enthusiastic about offering the room, changed her mind upon realizing he is from an African country because Nigerian cooking ‘makes the house smell’.

The landlord was identified as Elina Vimbsone, and said her house os only for Europeans.

Recounting the experience, 24-year-old Ebrima who is studying Performing Arts at the University of the Arts London said he was shocked to know that his right to renting the apartment was cancelled because of ethnicity.

He told The Sun;

“I was completely shocked at the landlord’s response and I still am today.

“Growing up in England, I’ve experienced all types of racism, but this was the first time that I’ve experienced something this absurd.

“She even tried to play it down by saying how she has Nigerian friends and that all their houses smell like what they cook.

“I’ve just moved in with new housemates and I’ve developed serious anxiety about cooking around them in case they hate the smell too.”
