Social Media Roundup: The tale of 182 tweets

by | Nov 29, 2019

In October, Nigerian twitter was buzzing with allegations of scam and poor treatment of staff against popular social media personality and business owner Glory Osei and her husband Muyiwa Folorunsho.

They are both cofounders of Divergent Enterprises, the parent company of various business ventures including LandLagos and PorkMoney.

Glory (and her husband) were “dragged” on social media so much that she had to take a month-long hiatus. But she’s back!!! Back with a bang featuring a 182-tweet thread, attempting to clear the air, among other interesting things.
