Is It A Cultural Thing For African Websites To Be Ugly And Unusable?

I don't know if its just me but honestly anytime I try to use a Nigerian website to do anything, I get frustrated both government and private websites. The aesthetics are very horrible, 90 percent of the functionalities the website are meant to offer dont even work. I mean the government builds a website to digitize a service, it doesnt work and you still have to leave your house to go to their office to go and do what the website was actually built for. That of private individuals is even worse. Imagine paying for a product for a small business through their website and the business doesnt even know it has been paid o. Like what was even the essence . My beef isn't even with functionality. It's the way the websites all look. We are in 2022 and Nigerian websites look like they were made in 1998 and the funny thing is the budget on these sites. One site can go for as much as 150 million and it looks absolutely ridiculous. Even the cheapest ugliest websites on ThemeForest does not look as horrible as some Nigerian sites. Thats australian immigration website. Nigerian immigration A danish government website. Even for private businesses no difference Thats innoson website Thats the international website of BMW. Even startups that are raising a ton of money have ugly sites. Only paystack and kuda stands out to me. The rest are rubbish. Is it cultural? I know amazing Nigerian designers but it seems they dont work for Nigerian companies at all.
