  1. So we’re doing stories on WhatsApp updates now?
    According to my version; there have been 361 updates in 2018…… ima let you finish that sentence.

    Get your stuff together TZ; instead of these useless updates, follow up on your older stories,,, mid-year you wrote a story for a hackathon that faded into obscurity amid a crisis of donor fund abuse; you penned a story about a guy who innovated a generator,,,he got a warning letter from an international company over copyright fraud; another guy who got invited to Silicon Valley,,,turns out it was just a lie.

    thats content to pen,,,not WhatsApp updates.
