Social Media Roundup: How much is ₦100,000 worth to you?

by | Jan 19, 2018

On Wednesday, an anonymous Twitter user asked another Twitter user if she would date a man who earns ₦100,000 (about $280) per month. Her reply created quite a conversation on Twitter.

Below are a few reactions.


Then the debate began; is 100k too small or just fine?

100K is too small

100k is okay if…

Some banter, as expected

Then someone tweeted this:

And people reacted

If you earn 100k don’t be discouraged

Really, how much is 100k worth to you? Read on for more interesting topics on social media this week.

Proposal gone wrong

On Monday this week, we heard of a lady who decided to take her relationship with her man to the next level by proposing to him. She decided on a public proposal at the Ikeja City Mall (ICM). However, things didn’t go as planned. Watch the video below.

The video has since been trending on all social media platforms. Here are a few reactions.

Some people felt sorry for her

While others couldn’t

Stop public marriage proposals!

Plot twist, the guy is already married…allegedly

Scum scoreboard

Ladies, would you propose to your man?

Is your country a sh!thole?

Last week, American President Donald Trump reportedly questioned why the US would want to have immigrants from “shithole countries” such as Haiti and African nations. Donald Trump has been openly racist in the past and so is widely unpopular among non-whites and even whites globally.

Haitians aren’t taking these comments lying down, neither are African leaders. Nana Akufo-Addo, President of Ghana has openly condemned Donald Trump’s racist comments while the Nigerian Presidency summoned the US Ambassador to Nigeria over the demeaning comments.

Is Nigeria a shithole country?

Quick answer; No and Yes

No, because…

Definitely a shithole, so yes!

Do you think Nigeria is a shithole?

Donald Duke for president

Another Donald was also in the news this week but for a different reason. The former governor of Cross Rive state, Donald Duke publicly hinted at his desire to run for president come 2019. He made this known at the 3rd Mike Omotosho Annual Lecture titled, “Mellinials as Protagonists in Nation Building,” on Sunday night in Abuja.

Nigerians reacted to the news on social media.

We finally have a worthy candidate

Donald Duke or Donald Crook?

We’ll only support Donald Duke if…

Do you think he is fit to run for president?

Did someone hack the IMBD website?

In last week’s roundup, we reported that Nigerian award-winning actress, Funke Akindele was to star in Marvel’s new Avengers movie as published on the IMBD website. A few hours later, we noticed that she had been replaced with another award winning actress, Genevieve Nnaji.

Nigerians expressed confusion, disappointment among other things on social media.

Avengers what?

Someone is playing with Nigerians’ emotions and we don’t like it.
