Top entertainers like Yemi Solade, and Mr Macaroni led a long list of entertainers and dignitaries that attended the second edition of the Social Media Hangout.
The event had as theme, ‘Digital media: freedom of internet use and the rights of the citizens.’
CEO of Bodex Media and convener of the event, Florence Bodex Hungbo, said the theme of this year’s Social Media Hangout came long before the Twitter ban and she felt God was using her to pass across a message through the theme.
Hunbgo said she observed that journalists, content creators and media personalities, in general, are not being treated well in Nigeria hence the need for this gathering to create more awareness. It’s was high time media personalities and content creators started having their own voices and avenues where they can come together and strategise.
