former Governor’s daughter earns $50 per tweet her Ibadan home

While many Nigerian youths, including er, me, spend their money on data to access twitter, this woman, Kemi Omololu-Olunloyo earns money from it!

Kemi is the 50-year-old daughter of a former governor of Oyo State, Dr. Victor Omololu-Olunloyo.
Interestingly, the United States/Canada-trained pharmacist has spent 25 years on social media.

In a recent chat with Punch newspaper, she claimed she earns between $50 and $150 every time she publishes tweets for her foreign clients who are mainly musical artistes.

“In a good month, one can make between $2,000 and $5,000 or even more, depending on what one is putting out on each platform.“On Twitter, I aggregate world news and monetise tweets. For example, I have Canadian and American musicians that tweet their music with me. A typical affordable tweet package is three tweets for $50 to $150 per tweet. I tweet their tracks to my followers.
“While abroad, there were companies that hired me to tweet reality shows, award shows and live events. That was very lucrative.”

You want to start making cool money too, Kemi who is well known for “being blunt, real and transparent” about all issues affecting the country, says “with good content, young Nigerian tweeters can monetize their accounts and earn a decent living promoting companies and artistic works.  You may want to open a separate handle and launch it for a business. Twitter is the best avenue for young Nigerians. Look it up. Indonesian teens make between $10 and $20 by tweeting for every small business out there.”

Kemi, who says she has no regret engaging in social media, notes that all she does now is working on a computer from her Ibadan home to earn money.
