Is social media the way to go? Your guess is as good as mine. In 2021; Not only did we mourn Twitter’s ban, but lots of Nigerians also switched to VPN make dem advertising dollars for no loss.
Anyways, I am not here to debate the dynamics of the restriction but to inform you that based on recent valuation reports, your brother Mark Zuckerberg, Founder of Facebook, is 7 times richer than the richest man in Africa, Aliko Dangote. So, let us all imagine if one of us owned an exclusively Nigerian social media platform, like pure Naija content, nothing foreign. Can you begin to visualize what that would look like for a business in Nigeria?
Just asking, wouldn’t you rather spend your money advertising there than having to stress your brain, narrowing down your targeting to a specific country and a particular region in that country, from a pool of the 156 countries in the world?
Abeg, before you lynch me, I am only thinking aloud, and just maybe, I could be right. Who knows? Just so we are clear, the net worth of 37-year-old Zuck is higher than that of several Nigerian moguls put together, so, while we are famzing Mr. Ali, think about this as well.
I also know that you might be tempted to list a few notable blogs as hubs for unadulterated Nigerian gist. Before you proceed, it is best we remind ourselves that those platforms are operating on rented infrastructure. If ‘they’ decide to ban them, anyways, let us not have that conversation because the signals from your eyes have already done the talking.
In other news, though, just in case you are inspired to take on this project, we have a team of seasoned business analysts and a pool of resources at your disposal. We support Made in Nigeria initiatives from the ground up if you have thought it through and are willing to put in the work.
