Social Media Roundup: A (re)union made in heaven

by | Dec 29, 2017

In Nigeria, the end of the year is usually the season of concerts. From the beginning of December this year, several Nigerian artistes have had their concerts and this week is no different. On Sunday, December 24, Wizkid held his much anticipated homecoming concert dubbed “Wizkid the Concert” which had thousands of music fans in attendance.

The highlight of the night was when Wizkid welcomed Davido, his supposed rival on stage. Watch the video below.

Here’s how Nigerians reacted on social media.



Best thing ever

You’ve been played

A few days later, Davido held his 30 Billion Concert on December 27, and Wizkid also performed.

Davido the peacemaker

Also to everyone’s surprise, members of the Mohits crew also performed. Watch the video below.

Nigerians believe all beefs should end already

A December to remember

Read more reactions here and here. And check out this hilarious thread too. Now, on to other interesting topics on social media this week.

Yusuf Buhari’s bike accident

On Tuesday night, Yusuf Buhari, son of Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari was involved in a tragic motorbike accident in Abuja. He reportedly broke a limb and sustained injuries to the head. It was also reported that Yusuf has been flown to Germany for further treatments.

The Presidency has since denied this report, claiming that Yusuf is receiving treatment at a clinic in Abuja. Nigerians had a few things to say concerning this on social media.

Goodwill messages

Fix Nigeria!

And these

We wish Yusuf a quick recovery.

The president of Liberia

This week, George Weah, former international footballer was elected as the 25th President of Liberia in the country’s first democratic transition since 1944. The football community around the world congratulated the President-Elect on his victory.

Nigerians joined in too… the Nigerian way

Over to you Nigeria

GTBank and fraud

If you are a Guaranty Trust Bank (GTB) customer and you woke up during the course of this week to an unexpected debit alert from the bank, know that you’re not alone. Many of their customers have been expressing their displeasure on social media using the #GTBandFraud hashtag. Here are a few of them.

Dear GTBank, let this end in 2017.
