Social Media Roundup: The Immigration Officer

by | Dec 14, 2018

This week, we learnt that Nigerian superstar Davido holds the keys to the entire Africa. Don’t mind my sarcasm.

It all began last week when Davido released the audio amd video of his latest single titled Wonder Woman. In less than 24 hours, the video already garnered up to 1 million views on YouTube.

Music blogger Ayo Jaguda found this number quite suspicious;

Mostly because in his opinion, the song is “trash”.

On Monday this week, Davido replied Ayo Jaguda’s tweets, threatening him. In his words;

#EndASuuStrike

On November 5, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) commenced an indefinite strike, demanding adequate funding for universities and payments of lecturers’ salaries and allowances.

The strike action halted all academic activities across all public state and federal universities in Nigeria.

The union has met with the government on several occasions but both parties are still yet to reach a compromise. This week, Nigerian Twitter influencers launched an #EndASuuStrike campaign, calling on the government and ASUU to reach an agreement.

Students joined their voices to the movement
