Nigerian Facebook Creators Can Monetize Content From June, Says Meta 

By June 2024, Nigerian content creators who live in Nigeria will be able to monitize their pages and profiles, Legit.ng can report.

At the moment, Nigeria is not among the countries eligible for content monetization on Facebook, but according to information exclusively obtained from Meta, this will be made possible by June 2024.

Recall that in March, Meta’s President of Global Affairs, Sir Nick Clegg, visited Nigeria and led a delegation that visited President Bola Tinubu.

Information released then by presidential spokesperson, Ajuri Ngelale stated in part:

“Sir Clegg also said Meta will introduce in June 2024 a feature on its Instagram app that will allow Nigerian creators to monetize their content to enable them to earn a living using the app.”

Can Nigerian creators make money from Facebook in June? 

Creators on Facebook wondered if the app would also be included in the plan.

Others wondered why it was only Instagram that was mentioned by Sir Nick Clegg and feared that Facebook creators in Nigeria might not be able to monetise by June.

To get a first-hand clarification, Legit.ng contacted Meta, and the social media giant confirmed that, indeed, creators in Nigeria who qualify would be eligible from June.

Meta said:

“Yes, starting June 2024, creators in Nigeria will be eligible to monetise their content. We’re working to bring our creator monetisation products to Nigeria, to begin rolling out in June. This means creators, who meet the monetisation eligibility criteria, will have the ability to run ads in-stream and use other tools such as Instagram stars and gifts that are available to creators elsewhere in the world.”
