Sterling Bank Shades ‘Elder’ Commercial Banks on Twitter

Sterling Bank has started a tweeter conflict with other Nigeria’s ‘elder’ commercial banks as each banks are now taking turns to reply at each other on Twitter with many Nigerians enjoying the fun side of the chit chat.

The clash started late Friday when Sterling Bank posted a tweet which had a graphic illustration of a bank customer on a space ship shooting for the moon with a Sterling Bank logo.

The graphic also included a boy slaking on a board with what seemed like an Access Bank board. It also had somebody looking out of a window of a cube looking house with a color related to GTB while two boys each rode on an elephant and horse respectively in subtle shade to First Bank and Union Bank respectively.

However, many Nigerians are giving the bank’s creative marketing strategy and addvert a thumbs up which has in turn fetched them awareness and customers.

Union Bank responds

“Heading to the moon without a spacesuit…journey mercies”#simplersmarterSAFERbanking— UNION BANK (@UNIONBANK_NG) July 21, 2018.

Access Bank also responded to the tweet;

“We will travel on an imaginary rocket too, if we were a one-customer Microfinance Bank; but with ten million customers and counting, we rather bring the galaxy to you!”— Access Bank Plc (@myaccessbank) July 21, 2018

Chance The Rapper Buys Popular News Website Chicagoist

25-year-old Chance The Rapper has purchased popular news website Chicagoist.

The Chicago born rapper made the announcement in his song “I Might Need Security” and New York’s public radio station WNYC, which previously owned the Chicagoist, confirmed the purchase on Thursday.

The deal means that Chance’s Social Media LLC company now owns all of the Chicagoist’s assets, including its archives and social media channels.  Chance said in a statement that he was “extremely excited” about the purchase, adding that the site was an “integral local platform for Chicago news, events and entertainment”.

Earlier, the rapper released a song in which he says that he bought the Chicagoist to produce content to run “racist” media organisations out of business. He said he was looking forward to relaunching the site, which has been dormant since last November, and “bringing the people of Chicago an independent media outlet”.

A statement from WNYC, which took ownership of the Chicagoist assets from billionaire businessman Joe Ricketts in February, said it was “delighted” that the business was “finding a new home in the hands of a proud Chicagoan”.  Last year, Chance announced that he was giving $1m (£800,000) to schools in Chicago for “arts and enrichment programming”, while challenging big companies and corporations to follow his lead.
