Nigerians have blasted movie director, Kunle Afolayan, for bothering the founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, with Nollywood issues upon his arrival.
Zuckerberg, who arrived Lagos on Tuesday for his first visit to Nigeria, had disclosed that he “will be meeting with developers and entrepreneurs, and learning about the startup ecosystem in Nigeria. I’ll be excited to learn as much as I can and I’m looking forward to meeting more people here.”
Concerned fans threw darts at Afolayan, for making Nollywood the subject of discussion with the Facebook founder.
His time-out with Zuckerberg, has, however, generated reactions from Nigerians on the social media.
Some users have blasted him, advising him to stop disgracing himself and the country and should resort to complaining to his president, Buhari instead.
See reactions below…
Hysmady: “Wetin concern akara with burger…Zuckerberg meeting is supposed to be with it techies,bloggers,web developers,app developers and it’s counterparts…Been seeing the opposite like musicians,comedians,video directors,photographers.”

Charix: “Mark came to study enterpreneurs(of which Afolayan is one) and tech startups. Afolayan knows very well Mark can fund his business as the government has failed in seeing it as a potential investment opportunity. If I recall correctly Kunle has made it known once he reached out to Mark for investment in form of capital. His coming only gave a second chance to ask physically.

Mark Zukerberge: Aburo, weytin consign fowl with toothbrush? wait, weytin consign vulture with comb? abi u chop dog egg? do i look like awilo logomba…are you a learner?
