The cream of Nigeria’s Nollywood, the famed movie industry interacted with the  visiting Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg in Lagos on Wednesday.

Zuckerberg had a swell time with the famous actors and actresses, including musicians.
As usual, the August visitor  penned about it on Facebook:
“Visited Nollywood, crashed a hip hop music video, and met some of Nigeria’s biggest stars.”
Here are some photographs that filled social media about the interaction:

The meeting with Nollywood was one of Zuckerberg’s activities in Lagos on Wednesday.

Earlier,  he posted a photo that shows him  and some of the city’s tech entrepreneurs jogging on the iconic Ikoyi-Lekki Bridge.

” Quick run this morning across the Ikoyi Bridge with entrepreneurs in the Lagos Road Warriors running club. Best way to see a city!”, he wrote.

On Tuesday, he spent time meeting with developers and entrepreneurs,  and learning, as he put  about the startup ecosystem in Nigeria.

“The energy here is amazing and I’m excited to learn as much as I can”, he said.

Later he wrote effusively  about his meeting with  Rosemary Njoku, who runs the Facebook Express Wi-Fi stand in Lagos.
