Oyinbo people know that Nigeria is cursed, but the same Oyinbo can not stop making TECH investment in Nigeria.


Oyinbo people know that Nigeria is cursed, but they still made sure that Nigeria so far this year collected more TECH investment than the whole of last year, more than SA and Kenya.

SA collected $111 last year, but in just one month this year alone, we collected over $200 million, more than what SA collected in one year.


So who is cursed, Nigeria that is making all the TECH money of SA and Kenya or even Ghana that's not even part of the top 10 in Africa.


Hatred and bitterness just won't let you people make sense..

If being cursed means 3 out of the best and the richest startups in Africa are Nigerian companies, it is definitely good to be cursed.


The joke is on you hateful and bitter unpatriotic losers.

2020 also showed the Big Four countries’ preponderance in terms of investment destination, at least in two out of the three reports.

The countries remained unchanged on Partech’s top five as Nigeria remained the VC’s top destination with $307 million

Do you see that?

The dynamics remain unchanged Nigeria is still the VC investment destination.

Now, let's put this in perspective, this report came out last year, but so far this year, we've cemented our lead with more TECH funding than the rest of the big 4 and the year is barely halfway over.

This is how big and massive we are getting, this is more like a TECH monopoly.

Outside Accra, what is in Ghana? NOTHING.

Even the Accra sef, outside their city center, it's just basic environment. Nothing special.

Many many streets in that city are untarred.

Their second city, Kumasi, is around the same level of development as Aba.

Go there and see.

Why won't they have constant light (sort of), when they only have one or two cities to power?

Abeg make we hear something.

You are wrong, especially if as you just asserted that twitter-based their decision on being more democratic which is BS, I already posted articles by the US government and media practitioners in Ghana stating the opposite.

Twitter can dance around and offer whatever narratives suit twitter, but the facts on the ground remain the same and in some cases worse than Nigeria.

Twitter knowing for a fact that more powerful TECH giants and conglomerates like Google, Facebook, and Microsoft are already established in Nigeria with a huge headstart and presence so they settled for Gnana to aoid facing and competing with Google, Facebook, and Microsoft.


Of what relevance is Twitter renting office space in Ghana to Nigeria? Of what relevance? We remain the BIG TECH GIANT in the whole of Africa.

Go and read Twitter's double talk press release.

Twitter is renting an office in Ghana and hiring 11 small people to work from home and their main objective is Nigeria and the Nigerian marketplace.

Whatever Twitter is doing in Ghana means economic/GDP boost in Nigeria and further solidification of our leade and dominance.

Ghana is not even anywhere near us or even 20 spaces near us when it comes to TECH.

Our TECH space in Nigeria is already saturated with the major players, our TECH companies collected 17% of TECH funding in the whole of Africa.

3 out of the 4 Unicon startups in Africa are here in Nigeria, not in SA, not in Kenya and definitely not in Ghana, but here in Nigeria so what is Twitter renting an office in Ghana going to do to us?

Let's get real abeg..





And I can bet there are 1000 more articles from the same US practitioners condemning NIgeria for undemocratic practices. So just because Ghana isn't 100% doesn't mean they are not more democratic than Nigeria...


And BTW Twiiter's market is a niche of its own, Those that use Twitter use it for a different function than Facebook or Instagram (Its not like Telegram VS Whatsapp who provide the same functionality) ... So twitter is not in competition with them... And for Microsoft and Google, these are enablers of twitter so these companies are not in competition with twitter. Infact, Google and Microsoft probably want you to use Twitter cause they know you have to go through them to get to Twitter.



Whether you like it or not, Ghana is one of if not the most democratic country in Africa, And twitter said this was their main reason for setting up their African base there, Now you can go on and on about Nigeria being a Tech giant, and yes, Even twitter says it will be targeting Nigeria for that reason, but there is a big difference between Setting up your physical HQ and targeting a market which brings the most profits through online/virtual means. Twitter could still target the Nigerian market from the US , they don't need to be in Nigeria for that.... But for twitter to make a long time investment in physical presence, they need stable electricity, High speed internet, Political stability, Ease of starting a business , Investor friendly laws.... Things that Ghana far outpaces Nigeria.
Don't think the Nigerian government was not mad with Twitter over the #EndSARS global campaign, Infact, it is said the Nigerian government was successful in pressuring Facebook and Instagram to suppress the hashtags but on twitter, the hashtag ran wild. So while Twitter loves the Nigerian fans, they are not ready to have the government of the day try to muzzle them everytime some hashtag doesn't please the government. So they chose a country that doesn't make much noise with things like these.

Your pointless and meaningless hateful and bitter essay did not and can not alter the fact that Nigeria is the TECH GIANT in Africa, not Ghana, Ghana is not even 1 million miles near Nigeria.

When Ghana reaches the top 100, then come back and write another silly eppistle.

I guess you need the crying more than me bro.

To begin with, I don't even give a damn about where any foreign organization choose to establish their headquarters if they feel that's the best place for their business. So, I think all the noise about twitter's choice of headquarters amounts to making mountain out of molehill.

I also believe it's twitter that's losing anyway as Nigerians are the most talented, creative, hardworking and ambitious people in Africa and these are qualities that could take twitter to even greater heights.

Lastly, I am more interested in Africa becoming a center of technological innovations instead of waiting for foreign tech giants to come to us.

I prefer Nigerians to create a platform that can compete successfully with twitter rather than imagining that they are being snubbed by twitter.

Twitter actually made a good and strategic business decision though not for the reasons their ignorant supporters are yelling all over the place.

1. Google as the main TECH giant in the world is already in Nigeria with their African HUB.

2. Facebook another TECH giant is already in Nigeria with their NG HUB.

3. Microsoft is already in Nigeria with its own regional dedicated office.

4. The Nigerian market place and ecosystem is already occupied with little or no room for Twitter to stick out or compete with the TECH giants already present in Nigeria so they decided to establish a very limited footprint in Ghana by renting an office with 11 people which in the real TECH world is almost insignificant.

5. Reading Twitter's press release, they clearly let the cat out of the bag by publicly announcing their true intentions, according to Twitter, their main goal is Nigeria and the Nigerian marketplace and not necessarily Ghana. Ghana is not a real or serious player when it comes to TECH in Africa. Nigeria is still the TECH leader in Africa.

Renting an office in Ghana and hiring 11 people looks more temporary than a serious move or assertive presence.

6. Nigeria is the end beneficiary of Twitter's actions and market strategy, even their CEO requirement says you must be able to speak Hausa, Yoruba and Igbo.

There is little or no room for Twitter to stand out in Nigeria, but Nigeria remains its one and only key to regional or continental survival in AFRICA, the other TECH giants saw it and I'm sure Twitter is not blind.
