The Social Media Week Lagos 2020 gets underway in a few days and The Guardian will be hosting two sessions. First, we’d take a look at how creators can balance timely content availability with premium audience satisfaction without compromising on either. Finally, we’d look at the global phenomenon called hate speech and how it can be regulated in Nigeria without misuse and abuse of power.

Joining CNBC Africa to unpack Nigeria’s controversial Hate Speech Bill is Valentine Utulu, Managing Partner at Legal Crest.
