Ory Okolloh’s observation that it’s more effective to front with a white face when looking for VC — which has gathered a fair amount of Twitter corroboration, by the way — is obviously what inspired the following 140 xter flood by Iyin on how to raise venture capital as a Nigerian/African founder.

By itself, Ory’s tweet is a stringy piece of meat that African technorati on Twitter will still be chewing on a few days hence. But a tweet “rant” about raising VC, local and foreign, by around 4:30 am, Nigerian time, is a terrible thing to waste. Totally up to you what you choose to agree with and what to not.
