Mark Zuckerberg Showcases 11-Year-Old Nigerian Boy’s “Spike Rush” App


Facebook founder and CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, took to his official Facebook Page to showcase and promote an App by built by an 11-year-old Nigerian boy, simply named Tayo. In his words:

“This is Tayo. He’s 11 and he recently showed me a game he built called Spike Rush. I got my first computer when I was Tayo’s age, and just like him I started out coding games. I’ve always thought building simple games was the gateway to building more complex apps.


My first games were simpler than Tayo’s, but no matter your level, there’s nothing like playing something you built yourself. Spike Rush is available in the iOS App Store. I’m looking forward to seeing what Tayo builds next!”
