Social media platforms serve a key purpose in networking, business strategizing, promoting events, advertisement, and overall help create visibility for people from all walks of life.
Aside from the networking purpose of social media platforms, numerous events across the globe are publicized there, giving an insight into some of the interesting things happening around the world.
In retrospect, October had some rather interesting highlights, and we thought to delight you with a couple of them. This is the maiden edition of this entertaining segment by WTS. We urge you to keep an eye out for subsequent ones.

Davido Balling VDM in Lagos
At this point, Very Dark Man has made a name for himself on the streets of social media, so he needs no introduction. On the 19th of October, Nigerian Afrobeats megastar, Davido flew VDM from Abuja to Lagos in a private jet.
Martins Vincent Otse sent a shock down the spine of netizens when he shared the luxurious room in which he got lodged. He documented his every move while spending quality time with the big dawgs.
As expected, naysayers dragged him by his singlet after bragging about his time with Davido and his self-acclaimed bestie, Cubana chief priest.
Phyna and Davido’s Online Battle
Wahala truly no dey end for social media. Who would have thought that there would come a day when Davido and Phyna would be at loggerheads? It all began after the famous musician liked a hate tweet directed at the BBNaija level-up winner, Phyna.
Phyna’s reaction to the said tweet prompted Davido’s apology to her. He admitted it to be “an honest mistake” while buttressing that he did not even know who she was. This riled up an already furious Phyna and made her go off about being hated so much in the industry.
