Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg is currently in Lagos, Nigeria to meet with Developers and discuss tech development across Africa. Good! Nigerian-American artiste, Jidenna arrived Nigeria today for his tour of West Africa. Bad!
Jidenna is billed to perform at Hard Rock Cafe, Lekki on the 1st of September and no one, literally no one, is talking about anywhere as at tonight. This is in spite of a tweet of Nigeria’s flag emoji that Jidenna shared earlier in the day. Meanwhile, Mark Zuckerberg’s visit and arrival was unannounced. News blogs did not catch a whiff of his presence in the country until Zuckerberg and his team walked into Cc-Hub in Yaba, Lagos.
At the moment, Twitter Nigeria is agog with stories, photos and videos of Zuckerberg’s visit trending all over the internet. Still, no news of Jidenna except for a tweet and photo of his arrival at the airport on YNaija. An angry Twitter user @Bar_Baric tweeted that Mark Zuckerberg and Jidenna should not be used in the same sentence. Well, at least not for now.
We’re not sure how long Zuckerberg’s visit will last but hopefully, he leaves before Jidenna’s performance at Hard Rock Cafe on Thursday night. The promoters of the show must be somewhere praying that the man leaves so that Jidenna can at least shine in his own country.
But at the end of the day, we might just be overthinking things. Twitter attention will most likely shift to Jidenna hours before his show. But for now, you can chill bro! Your turn will soon come.
