Armed with just a mobile phone, a viral video has the potential to reach a billion people around the world. New tools and technologies are breaking down barriers that once existed and turning the truly world into a global village.

On the forefront of this crusade is a group of young people who use various social mediums to tell viral and engaging stories. This new tribe wields a cumulative influence of over 5 million followers with content that have over 200 million engagements between them.

SKIT KINGS will spotlight some of the most viral content creators in the Nigerian social space and the influence that these new power figures have come to wield.

The interactive SKIT KINGS panel session will examine how viral videos are created, the opportunities and challenges and how to effectively optimize the value of your craft to make it pay you. The event will also highlight the importance of responsible storytelling and the negative impact of fake stories in a society like ours.
