Facebook has stunned the world yet again with a mouthwatering bid to acquire YesiYesi Ghana, a Ghanaian satire/spoof news site.
The social media giant announced that it has offered YesiYesi Ghana $3bn in cash and a new website platform (www.yesiyesighana.com). The 7 wise dwarfs, owners of YesiYesi Ghana, have accepted and duly launched the website but have so far, refused the $3bn offer.
Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, who has recently overseen the acquisitions of WhatsApp and Oculus Rift, has described YesiYesi Ghana as “the next big thing everyone wants to be a part of that.” He also revealed that, the Chinese and the North Korean governments will, every soon, make it compulsory for their citizen to read YesiYesi Ghana’s daily posts via Google Translate. The prospect of a foothold in Asia has made YesiYesi Ghana even more attractive to Mr. Zukerberg, who has reportedly flown to the Akwapem Mountains in Ghana, to hold face to face talks with the 7 dwarfs.
The dwarfs, who are unlikely to sell their prized possession, contend that YesiYesi Ghana’s steady growth justifies an even larger valuation. They however expressed their gratitude to Facebook and Mr. Zuckerberg for the website and encouraged all to visit (www.yesiyesighana.com). The dwarfs have promised a special treat for the first one thousand visitors to their new website.
