  • Culture Media Partner Spotlight

Social Media Week

Social Media Week is a leading news platform and worldwide conference that curates and shares the best ideas and insights into social media and technology's impact on business, society, and culture.

We love sharing the #SMWLagosExperiences and insights that our event partners, volunteers and sponsors have from the event!

For our first installment we talked with Luvvie Ajayi, better-known on the web as the brains, beauty and brilliant comic voice behind the blog!

This year Luvvie taught the #NokiaEDU Masterclass: Blogging 101- From Beginner to Boss. Luvvie is an in-demand digital communications strategist with ten years of experience blogging. Her renowned blog, where she covers everything from culture to current events, has been featured on, Huffington Post, Black Enterprise, ESSENCE, EBONY and more.

Of her masterclass, Luvvie said,

“​There’s nothing better than having a class of people who are excited about the information they’re about to learn. At SMW Lagos, I fed off the energy of my participants in the Blogging Crash Course I taught. In planning the class, my priority was having people walk away feeling empowered and confident that they can blog successfully and that’s exactly the feedback I received. And as a teacher, that’s the most satisfying thing.”​
