Instant messaging app WeChat has announced a partnership agreement with two Nigerian startups to help them grow and gain access to WeChat’s audience.

The selection was as a result of the ideathon which WeChat held in conjunction with TechCabal earlier in the year which was organized to select the most interesting ideas from businesses and startups that can ride on the WeChat platform.
