Basic JavaScript - Profile Lookup

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.

Everything seems to be fine, still, the function is returning “No such contact” during each call. While I checked the code otherwise, I found that the function is not entering inside the block of code of the 1st if statement, even when the condition is true.
What’s wrong here?

Your code so far

 // Setup
const contacts = [
  {
    firstName: "Akira",
    lastName: "Laine",
    number: "0543236543",
    likes: ["Pizza", "Coding", "Brownie Points"],
  },
  {
    firstName: "Harry",
    lastName: "Potter",
    number: "0994372684",
    likes: ["Hogwarts", "Magic", "Hagrid"],
  },
  {
    firstName: "Sherlock",
    lastName: "Holmes",
    number: "0487345643",
    likes: ["Intriguing Cases", "Violin"],
  },
  {
    firstName: "Kristian",
    lastName: "Vos",
    number: "unknown",
    likes: ["JavaScript", "Gaming", "Foxes"],
  },
];

function lookUpProfile(name, prop) {
  // Only change code below this line
  for (let i = 0; i < contacts.length; i++) {
        if (contacts[i]["firstname"] === name) {
            for (let j = 0; j < object.keys(contacts[i]).length; j++) {
                if (object.keys(contacts[i])[j] === prop) {
                    return contacts[i][prop];
                }
            }
            return "No such property";
        }
    }
    return "No such contact";
  // Only change code above this line
}

lookUpProfile("Akira", "likes");

Link to the challenge:

* 1. List item

What is firstname? Is it the same as firstName?

Yes, thanks for pointing out that error, but now after correcting it, there’s a new error:
“Reference Error: object is not defined”

Solved it, just a typo, object should be Object.
