Meta to pay Nigerian content creators on Facebook and Instagram from June 2024

/

Meta has revealed its plans to enable Nigerian content creators on Facebook and Instagram to monetize their content, providing them with a means to earn a living through the platform starting June 2024.

During a meeting at the presidential villa, Meta’s President of Global Affairs, Sir Nick Clegg, unveiled this initiative to President Tinubu, emphasizing the company’s commitment to empowering creators in Nigeria.

President Tinubu welcomed Meta’s decision, highlighting Nigeria’s readiness to embrace digital innovation and lead the African continent in technological advancement. He expressed confidence in Nigeria’s youth, describing them as vibrant, gifted, and resourceful.

Recognizing the importance of preparing Nigerian youth for the future economy, Tinubu mentioned the government’s 3MTT programme. This initiative, overseen by Minister of Digital Economy Bosun Tijani, aims to train three million youths in digital technology and essential skills. These trained individuals will then be deployed to various innovation hubs across the nation, ensuring they are equipped to compete globally.

Meta’s move to support Nigerian creators aligns with Nigeria’s vision of fostering digital inclusion and economic empowerment. With this development, Nigerian creators can look forward to leveraging their creativity to not only entertain but also sustain themselves financially in the digital age.

  1. Is a very good move I think this will stop stealing cultism etc in Nigeria kudos to the government

  2. This is a very good development, with this development many Nigeria youths will be occupied by creating a content as a means of leaving, instead of indulging into indecent act that can lead them into deferent punishment, they will be making money now true content creating is a very great one I love it. With this, I believe there will be so many job opportunities in Nigeria. May God bless the initiator of this program the more.
