Do African countries like Nigeria have YouTube or Internet? – Nigerians Respond



Do African countries like Nigeria have YouTube or Internet? - Nigerians Respond 1
So I was just respecting myself online when one mail came in from Quora and the contents of the mail was annoying. Someone actually asked if we have YouTube or even Internet In Nigeria.

I quickly opened the page to give the person a very good response but the savage and sarcastic replies already on the page got me weak. I couldn’t give a better reply,

Do African countries like Nigeria have YouTube or Internet? - Nigerians Respond 2

Check out some of the responses to that question –

Osazua Iruedo

No we don’t. We only have opportunities to listen to tales by moonlight stories. We sit under the tree at the village square and listen to the story teller. In fact, yesterday night, the story was about why elephants and tortoises don’t get along. You see, some of this stories make our hairs stand on end, while some make us laugh until we roll over.

We’ve never heard anything about YouTube. How can we, when we don’t even have internet. Please, what’s YouTube?

So your next question should be how do Nigerians communicate with themselves or the world?

I must confess, it’s more of a face-to-face thing. Except when distance becomes a barrier, then we post letters. We also have the town criers that has a duty to give us informations. They do this with the Gongo and stick.

By the time we hear them calling for our attention, we all leave whatever it is we are doing at the moment and rush out to listen to what ever information they have to share.

The hard part of it is, we still write love letters.Aww, how I envy you that have access to the internet. You can send your thoughts through a voice message or an instant message. And if you are lucky, you get your reply immediately. But in Nigeria and in Africa as a whole, we have to send the letter and wait for the person to write his or her reply which can take days. And a situation where distance is a barrier, it can take weeks to get a reply.

Few of us that have access to a transistor radio are able to be current with trending songs. While you are so lucky to stream for movies and songs. We wait till the song is no longer trending before we are aware that song exist.

When Mark Zuckerberg visited Nigeria, We all thought he and our mummy( his wife) have made plans to come and adopt some of us. If we had access to internet, we would have known beforehand he was coming . We would have dressed in our Christmas clothes to welcome him.

Whoever is sharing this internet should please remember us in Nigeria and Africa as a whole. Lol.

You’d think that’s the end, the comment section was mad.

Egg Gang Already Has Haters

Just when I thought I’ve seen it all. Take a look at this tweet

From my calculations the only Nigerian Celeb with a higher follower count than the egg is probably Davido.

On another note, this is kind of Sad. My IG account hasn’t even reached 20k. 😥😥

Whatsapp To Add Fingerprint Security
According to the WhatsApp beta update for Android, the company is said to be working on a new authentication feature which isn’t available globally yet as the feature is currently under development.

Once the Fingerprint feature is enabled , the app will be completely protected, so the you will need to authenticate your identity in order to open WhatsApp (from the app icon, from the notification or from external pickers).

It will protect the entire app, meaning you can’t use it to lock specific conversations for now.
