“Twitter Headquarters now in Ghana, Wizkid now stays in Ghana, most people spent their Festive Szn in Ghana. Slowly but surely Ghana is becoming a Giant in Every Aspect while Nigeria just has Population, Jollof Rice & Vibes.”
“Jack wanted to bring Twitter HQ to Nigeria, but when he heard the maker of Made In Lagos resides in Ghana, he just had to take it there, he wants his staff to receive Made In Lagos inspiration from the source.
Made In Lagos has done it again.”
