So there’s a new podcast in town – The GreyRoomNG – and in only three days after upload, its numbers are already blazing. Like 12,000 views blazing!
The first episode (Do you think society is fair on men by making them pay most of the bills?) features young Nigerians and it has generated a lot of buzz online. The hashtag, #GreyRoom became one of the trending topics on Twitter, and made its debut on number 19 in trending videos on YouTube.
Amazing feat for a new show but surprising? Nahh!
Whoever decided on the subject to be discussed must be extra aware of the sort of topics that spur conversations -the types that cause people’s blood to boil and makes them fling shoes – on TwitterNG.
We couldn’t help but notice a few flaws here and there, like participants talking over each other and leaving us to struggle with making out the messages being passed, but that can be fixed.
Unlike everyone else, we can’t claim to be super excited about The GreyRoom NG just yet. A few more episodes and maybe we’ll catch on. But does it matter what we feel? Like it’s often said, “it’s all about the numbers“, and The Grey Room is winning in this regard so carry go!
