Show Notes

Today on the Techpoint Africa Podcast, we discuss Telkom's beef with South Africa's President, Standard Chartered shutting down international spending on naira cards, and Ubenwa $2.5m pre-seed raise.

Telkom is suing South Africa's President, Cyril Ramaphosa for directing the Special Investigative Unit (SIU) to launch an investigation into the telco. From what we hear, there's some issue with a sale in 2006, and there are even more lawsuits in the offing.

Would you pay to use Twitter?

The prolonged deadline for the linkage came to an end on Monday, April 4, 2022, and caused disconnected subscribers to troop to the nearest National Identification Management Commission’s (NIMC) office to have their lines unbarred. However, many have been unable to link their SIMs as NIMC seems to be unable to verify NINs. According to Premium Times, over 7.5 million MTN subscribers are yet to get their NINs verified by the NIMC.

'Twas NFT weekend!

In the words of Bolu Abiodun, it was definitely an NFT weekend. From the coffin guys to Baba Onilu, the non-fungible token market was on a spree. We — well, mostly Bolu — talked about how a “stale” meme was sold for over a million dollars and why we should probably dig up and mint some of our grandparents’ pictures.
