Even though Nigerian publications and foreign media reported the story, one fact that wasn’t put in the spotlight is that Faridah was a tech blogger in Nigeria and still a hardcore techie. She was editor-in-chief of the now defunct Technesstivity.  The blog which was started in 2012 was among some of the first tech blogs in Nigeria.

In April 2015, Technesstivity officially announced their discontinuance via a still active Facebook page, but the picture attached to the post subtly hinted at a later return.

Tech blogging looks to be a thing of the past for her, but Faridah’s LinkedIn profile says she is currently listed as the Social Media director of Kampke; so she is still actively involved in the Nigerian tech scene.`

In her Twitter bio, Faridah describes herself as a monotone rap princess. The “Rinse and Repeat” song is a chill electronic jam where she raps about turning up, staying up till the morning  and a hyper party life.

  • Very good blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any tips? Thanks!
