Nigerian Actress, Shan George Writes A Letter To Mark Zuckerberg Over Nigerians
Popular Nigerian film maker and actress, Shan George has written an open letter to Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg over Facebook’s monetization policies which marginalizes Nigerians.
She appealed to Mark Zuckerberg to enlist Nigeria to the numerous countries eligible for page monetization which Nigerians are currently sidelined despite having huge presence on Facebook.
She wrote: “This is an OPEN LETTER TO Mr Mark Zuckerberg.My name is Shan George, I’m the President of AGFB (Association of Grandmas on Facebook) a movie producer and actress in Nollywood.
“I’m very pained at d gruesome and expensive process young upcoming Nigerian content creators go through to get their pages monitized, even after creating loads of very awesome contents and meeting all Facebook requirements for their pages to get monitized, the reason being that Nigeria is not ELIGIBLE for monitization.
“What I’m about to bring to your notice may not be attended to maybe, based on the fact that few greedy digital business operators are hugely benefiting from this policy, while they sit at home, as these young creators toil day and night to create and upload contents without seeing the fruits of their labour, bcos most of these digital business operators are shylocks, creating a scenerio of MONKEY DEY WORK BABOON DEY CHOP”.
“A very unfair situation to these young content creators. In my opinion.
Please help us make our money’s worth, by Adding Nigeria to the COUNTRIES ELIGIBILITY FOR FACEBOOK CONTENT MONITIZATION.
We anticipate. Thank you.
Shan George ( African Film Maker From Nigeria)”
