Super Eagles 3-1 win over Algeria in the World Cup qualifying match triggered an “MMM” trend on twitter with over 8,000 tweets as at the time of this report.
MMM which orginally stands for Mavrodi Mundial Movement (an online platform which is gaining wide popularity among Nigerians) has now been substituted for the names of the Nigerian goal scorers in the qualifier, Moses Mikel Moses (MMM)
However, the trend has gone beyond the football match to celebrate the online platform :
The platform is said to yield 30% of donations made after 30 days and many Nigerians have embraced it in the wake of the economic recession and in the quest for financial freedom.
However, the platform has been classified by the CBN and SEC as a ponzi scheme that Nigerians should be wary of while the House of Representatives had ordered its investigation, this has not hindered more Nigerians from jumping into the online platform.
The trends following the football match however suggest that the call by the financial regulators as well as the lawmakers may have fallen on deaf ears.
