With the increasing rate of social media enterprise across the world, it goes without saying that everyone now wants to learn about the craft of making money online. So it is with the need to satisfy this hunger that one of the most successful online entrepreneurs in Nigeria has chosen to enlighten the public.
In a glamorous event in Lagos, online media entrepreneur and founder of Olorisupergal.com, Tosin Ajibade launched her first book, titled ‘From Social Misfit to Social Media Hero’.

The author, who is also the convener of the ‘New Media Conference,’ highlights in detail her struggles at her early stage as a blogger and her evolution into a media entrepreneur. The book illustrates tips for younger media entrepreneurs and influencers to learn from.
