Social media platforms have forever changed the way entertainment is distributed around the world and millions of Nigerians have keyed into it.
Unlike the days of old when you needed to be given a platform to showcase your skills on a stage, these days, all that’s required is a social media account and consistent updating with fresh content.
Instagram, more than all others, has proven to be an effective medium to publicise one’s craft, gift or hustle.
Many young Nigerians, having realised this, are making good use of the platform.
The consistency of their Instagram updates has increased their popularity and in turn resulted in money-making opportunities like brand endorsements, paid gigs, roles in television series, among others.
For those who seek humour or want to have a good laugh, these are some of the most creative young Nigerians using Instagram to ‘cash out’.
