Zuckerberg-in-Nigeria-NollywoodFacebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is currently visiting Lagos, Nigeria for his first trip to Sub-Saharan Africa. And it looks like he’s having a blast.

So far he’s visited a camp that teaches kids how to code, gone on a run through the city, and hosted a Q&A with local entrepreneurs.

He even crashed a Nigerian hip-hop music video.

Here’s everything Zuckerberg has been up to in Lagos:

He held an hour-long Q&A with local entrepreneurs.

‘The thing that’s striking (about Nigeria) is the entrepreneurial energy,’ he told the crowd.

During the talk, Zuckerberg touched on the business of WhatsApp, which recently announced that it would start sharing data with Facebook to let people message businesses. Zuckerberg said the main goal for WhatsApp right now is to grow its user base, not monetisation.

He also talked about the idea of augmented reality glasses that let you place virtual objects over the real world — which sounds a lot like what Magic Leap is working on.

‘That’s gonna happen,’ he said. ‘Think about all the things in your life today that could actually just be an app in that world… How many of the things in your life don’t have to actually be physical?’
