Social Media Roundup: A very merry Christmas

by | Dec 28, 2018

Tuesday this week was Christmas day, making this entire week all about joy, kindness and unlimited enjoyment. There were a couple of major concerts in Lagos as it is the norm and every fun place was packed full.

On Christmas day, Techpoint released a video to wish all our friends and readers a happy holiday. Watch it below.

Fun fact about the video, we practised for three weeks and we’re glad it turned out okay. Turns out the Nigerian President Buhari and Vice President Osinbajo came through too but I doubt they had much practice;
