MTN Midnight Plan To Be Stopped Soon?

Few days ago, the NCC mandated all Nigerian telecommunication companies to increase their data plan prices.

A petition is currently ongoing to try to stop this from taking effect. You can also take part in the movement. Click here to sign the petition.

It's a day to the D-day and I tried to subscribe to MTN's N25 midnight plan, however the reply I got sent shocks down my spine.

After sending Night to 131, naturally you would receive a reply that says;
"Dear Customer, you have successfully subscribed to Free Night Browsing between 12am and 4am. N25 has been deducted. Fair usage policy apply. Enjoy!"
However instead if the regular reply, here's what I got:
Mtn stops midnight plan
Although, I was given the data regardless of the reply, I think this indicates that MTN might be removing the N25 for 500mb midnight plan.... So... Sad!

Join The Protest! Say No To Data Price Increase

I already told you guys that come December 1st(which is tomorrow), all data plan prices will be increased to reflect the new rates set by the NCC.

I'm not happy at all about these new changes and it seems I am not the only one that doesn't like the new directive by the NCC.

An equally concerned Nigerian has started a petition on to protest against the new directive.
I already signed the petition now I need you guys to do the same and share it on every social media you have to let everybody join the movement.
Increase in data plan price

Sign the petition. Let your voice count, spread the news and let NCC know we are not happy about it!

NCC Orders All Telcos to Increase Data Price Starting From Dec 1st 2016

In hard times such as the ones we are passing through, one would think that the NCC would at least try to make life easier for Nigerians instead they are doing the exact opposite. The NCC has ordered all telecommunications companies to increase their data plan prices beginning from December 1st 2016.

This is really sad, I remember that as at last year, you could only get as much as 260MB for 1,000 on MTN(I don't know if you remember) but over time it got better and better now we at a point where I can easily get 3GB for N1,000 on the same MTN.

However, NCC believes that increasing data plan prices is one of the surest ways of generating revenues for the Government. They know regardless of how much it is, that we can’t do without buying data.

Don’t be surprise if beginning from December 1st 2016, N1000 will only get you 500MB of data. The data you normally get 3GB for N1000 before will be history.

If you don't believe me, call MTN self-help centre at 181 and listen to the announcement yourself.

This is indeed really sad, but I know if we can survive buying 260mb at 1k we will definitely overcome whatever is coming!

What is Black Friday, When is Black Friday?

Black Friday... Lately, you must have heard this term a lot but what does it really mean?
Is it a day when the Sky turns black(like an eclipse) ? 😕

***Singing Hell to the naw naw by Bishop bullwinkle***

Black Friday is the Friday after Thanksgiving(US).

Thanksgiving is a national holiday in America when families come together to share food(which mostly include turkey), enjoy parades and watch American football!

Black Friday is often referred to as the best day of the year to go shopping, but I've got to say it ain't gon' be easy.

On this day, various stores offer unimaginable price slashes across a lot of products(if not all). The sale usually last for a day only but lately we've been hearing terms such as 'black Friday weekend' by Amazon which offers a couple of limited time discounts across a handful of products.

Best black Friday deals
Black Friday shoppers ready to wreck havoc
Black Friday is usually a long day as stores open as early as 6 am to welcome the anticipating Black Friday shoppers who are probably already waiting around the windows.

What is Black Friday
Black Friday shoppers wrestling for a plasma TV
Jumia brought this 'frenzy' to Nigeria back in 2013 but didn't record much success at the time because we were all new to it, but 2014's Black Friday sales was hot! as we were already prepared and anticipating it(some even had a shopping list). But last year's bBlack Friday was off the charts, the prices were too good to be true...a friend of mine bought a brand new infinix hot 2 for N8750 on jumia.

November is here again and Black Friday is just around the corner (Nov. 25) so if you missed last year's sale or you participated last year and would love to go again then start getting ready because report state that this year's Black Friday sale is expected to be the BIGGEST EVER!

Jumia already started its Black Friday sales since Nov. 14 but a lot would still happen

Me, I'm already writing my list I don't know about you? 

That's true sef, **adds one more to the list**

The Elephone S7 'A Samsung S7 Copy' Has Been Launched

Few months ago, I told you guys about the Elephone S7 which I called 'An S7 Clone'.
After much anticipation, the Elephone S7 has finally been launched and available for sale.

Elephone S7

The Elephone S7 features a metal frame that goes around the sides separating two glass panels on the back and the front. It has a design similar to Samsung devices and a curved screen like the S7 Edge.
The Elephone S7 looks like a combination of the Galaxy Note 7 and the Galaxy S7 edge.
However, though the Elephone S7 looks like a Samsung flagship, it has a couple of disappointing specifications.
Elephone S7

Before I discuss the specifications of the Elephone S7, I want us to look at something Elephone is saying.
Elephone says the S7 is a guaranteed 'explosion-proof' device. The maker says that there are three layers of protection against explosions. The first is a battery that's been extensively tested. The second layer is an explosion-proof membrane and the third is an explosion-proof TPU shell.

There are two versions of the Elephone S7. One comes with a 5.2-inch display while the other has a larger 5.5-inch display. Both devices have a resolution of 1080 × 1920 pixels and are protected by a curved display glass.
Elephone S7
The Elephone S7 is powered by a MediaTek Helio X20 chipset with a deca-core CPU and an ARM Mali T880 GPU. The device comes in different variants, The cheapest variant comes with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage but there are also models with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage as well as a variant with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.

The Elephone S7 comes with a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP selfie camera. Other specs include a microSD card slot, dual-SIM support, NFC support, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and a 3000mAh battery.

Pricing starts from $139.99.
