If you haven’t heard, the co-founder and owner of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, is in Lagos, Nigeria.

Here is a lovely video of his visit to Andela, where he is a major investor.

He also visited the Co Creation Hub in Yaba which has birthed a number of innovative technology companies in Nigeria.

He has now been inducted into the Island fit-fam club, after going on a run on Lagos’ current infrastructural pride and joy, the Lekki-Ikoyi bridge, this morning.

During a live video chat held with tech stakeholders, he mentioned he had tried and enjoyed some Naija jollof rice!

Many people are particularly tickled by his easy breezy movement around the city, even though we are very sure he has incredibly tight, serious security.

While some have mused over what they would say to him if they had the opportunity to meet him.


And others have a little favour to ask.


We are just happy he is here, and hope this is a sign of even greater things to come for the tech industry in Nigeria.
