In case you missed Social Media Week Lagos, we are giving you the chance to see some clips of a few of our events that were streamed live. So let’s jump right into them.

‘Next Level Music – International Appeal’ was scheduled to hold at Terra Kulture (MACE hub) but the organisers later pulled it off virtually and shared insightful tips for the music enthusiasts in the music-loving Nigeria. It is available for your viewing here: https://new.livestream.com/smwlagos/events/1865663

At ‘ Eden Lifestyle presents: Bridging the gap between doctor and patient using technology,’ which held at the Lagos State E-Learning Centre (PEGS hub), seasoned doctors and a nutritionist tactfully and interactively examined a couple of contemporary lifestyle issues that affect the health and useful tools (including social media tools) to keep you in good health. Get a glimpse of the event right here: https://new.livestream.com/smwlagos/events/1862288

Powered by Africa Digital, ‘Broadband In Nigeria’  saw some industry experts come forth to discuss the history and prospects of internet broadband in Nigeria. This, certainly, is a major topic in Nigeria. See the link: https://new.livestream.com/smwlagos/events/1865650

We could not catch it all due to connection hitches, however, ‘Borderless: A Case Study of the church and social media use’ was indeed the event with a difference-and the good kind of difference! See how This Present House pulled off this beautiful combination of insightful discussions and refreshing music here:  https://new.livestream.com/smwlagos/events/1865676

Also, get a good look at what  ‘Smartvertising: Big Data & Social Media Marketing’ which held at The Porsche Centre (BIT hub) looked like via this link:  https://new.livestream.com/smwlagos/events/1862306

So who needs the African Diaspora? And is the African Diaspora politically relevant? Yes? No? You sure would find the analyses interesting. See a bit of the action at the event ‘Who needs the African Diaspora? Is the African Diaspora politically relevant?’ right here:  https://new.livestream.com/smwlagos/events/1865637

Finally, here is a sneak peek into ‘Africa 2.0 Presents: An Evening With Leaders featuring Honoured Guest H.E. Olusegun Obasanjo.’ The former president, H.E. Olusegun Obasanjo, could not make it to the event but it was indeed a time of stimulating discussions. Watch Uche Pedro (Bella Naija), Tonye Cole (Sahara Group), and Ndidi Nwuneli (LEAP Africa) tackle some really difficult and interesting questions here: https://new.livestream.com/smwlagos/events/1885571

In case you looked out for an event that is not available here, please accept our apologies. Not all events were streamed live and we faced some technical challenges we plan to overcome in the future. As an alternative, you could search for the  hash tag of your event of choice on Twitter to catch up on the discussion.
