It has been quite an unprecedented couple of weeks for me, both as a young person living in Nigeria and also working at Paystack. I know we promised a return to regular programming but at the time of writing this newsletter, peaceful protesters lost their lives and I lost my words.
So here are some words I have been able to find back: I dedicate this issue to those who have lost their lives to police brutality and the insistently and consistently peaceful protesters who died advocating for their right to live. May their fight never be in vain.
To understand what is going on, you can read this NY Times piece by Nigerian author, Chimamanda Ngozi-Adichie.
As always, stay safe and wear a mask.
