Social media roundup: Freedom of association in tech #BreaktimeNigeria

This week, a tech event banner was posted on Facebook.

Even though the event is “not exclusive to only muslims and everybody is welcome,” many people did not like the idea of mixing tech with religion. And they voiced their opinions.

But some people don’t think it’s a big deal

Meanwhile, here are other interesting things that happened on social media in the past week.

Where’s your loyalty?

Last week, Aisha Alhassan, Minister of Women Affairs and Social Development, was caught on camera declaring her allegiance to former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar ahead of the 2019 elections.

This caused quite a conversation on social media with arguments for and against her decision.

Some thought it was a bold step

While others thought it was unethical

Add some conspiracy theories into the mix

And these too

Hajia Aisha eventually apologised to the All Progressives Congress (APC) over her comments but we already know where her loyalty lies. In lieu of the 2019 elections, Atiku’s track record is already being examined on social media. Check this.

The iPhone X-pensive

This week, at the first ever iPhone event, Apple unveiled several new products including the iPhone X which stole the show with its amazing features and price–$999/₦360,000.

Nigerians welcomed the phone the only way they can; with humour.

Would you buy the iPhone X?

Life is not eazi

Last week in an interview, Mr Eazi was apparently disrespectful to Nigerians. Watch the video below.

Nigerians reacted on social media

In another interview this week, the popular musician claimed that he left a $6,000 (about ₦2 million) job in oil and gas because he was not fulfilled. I don’t know if it’s the mention of US Dollars or the amount itself but the statement fueled Nigerians’ anger.

Then we saw this
