Instagram Launches QR Code and Here’s How To Generate Your QR Code



Instagram launches QR code to the App which allows users to generate QR codes that’ll be scannable from any supporting, third-party camera apps.

This is one of the adjustments Instagram is making to its app.

Having launched the product in Japan last year, Instagram enables QR Code scanning for easy accessibility.

The idea is that businesses print their QR code and have customers scan it to open their Instagram account easily from any place. 

This is to avoid being stranded. This enables customers to view store hours, buy items, or just follow the account.

How to Generate Your QR Code

Go to the settings menu on your profile and tap QR code.

You might still see Nametag there, but eventually, it’ll become QR code.

Save or share the image.



You would recall that Instagram used a similar system of verification called Nametags, which were internal QR-like codes that could only be scanned from the Instagram camera. 

It is set to remove the feature permanently.

This is one of the adjustments to the app including it’s merging with the Facebook story.

You would recall that when Instagram launched Nametag, it also tested a new bio field at some US universities, which will allow you to add your school, class year, and society memberships.

This information helps you to see a directory of everyone at that institution, making it easier to find and add classmates. 

It also permits Facebook to gather more information about you. The QR Code is not far from this.


Similar functionality is already available across other social media networks. 

Twitter, Facebook, and Snapchat users can generate QR codes for others to scan and quickly find accounts, while Spotify offers the same for music tracks.

It’s also a very inclusive system as phone apps like WPS Office and Xender have adopted the QR Code System.

Pelumi PK’s Earcraft an hymn of optimism, a well written goodbye to bad days



Nigerian creative kayode Pelumi, comes through with new extended playlist Earcraft, a 6mins body of work comprising of two song, Sope and Hallelujah with his fellow wordsmith Tiirii as a guest artist on the later.
The theme of Earcraft crowns Pelumi PK’s long run on the switching back and forth with rap and vocals on songs like “Amin” with talking points revolving around life, it’s ups and down and his desire to make it regardless of his current situations a slice of readiness for its uncertainty with raw optimism. Pelumi PK is thankful on Sope for his blessings while asking for more, but takes it to another level with Hallelujah with Tiirii, with Pelumi PK rapping about his innermost desire to make it, without ignoring the fact that he is taking a risk, his optimism outweighs his pessimism, with lines like “even though the road is long, je kin pada wale”.

Generally Earcraft is an impressive project which sees a versatile Pelumi PK switch styles effortlessly with no atom of fear while still passing across the message with Tiirii bringing his A game as well.

When we reached out to him for his Motivation, his response was apt “I have seen it all, that’s why i treat my music like a sermon and positivity is the message that I pass across, because I can’t be insensitive to the uncertainties of life and how it fate is a fickle mistress, that’s why I stay optimistic and back my heart desires with prayer”

Earcraft will be available worldwide on Friday. Preorder

Wizkid releases the deluxe version to his smash-hit album—“Made In Lagos”



Nigerian music superstar and ‘Afrobeat to the world’ pioneer, Wizkid has released the deluxe version to the October-released Made In Lagos album, adding four additional songs to close out one of the most talked about project since last year.

Buju (on “Mood”) and Justin Bieber (“Essence (Remix)” remix) are the guests this time around; “Anoti” and “Steady” (in no particular order) rounds off the list of added song on Made In Lagos (Deluxe). On a sidenote, Bella Shmurda whom Wizkid had initially revealed to be on the guest list for MIL’s deluxe did not make the final cut, this might be due to the ongoing case between him and his supposed label but Bella Shmurda scores additional vocals credits on “Anoti”.

Of the four added songs, “Mood” featuring fast-growing midtempo Nigerian artist – Buju – seems to have become the listeners favourite as it is quickly growing its own pair of wings, soaring high just as hyped.

Like the original version, the deluxe maintains the cream background and italics font written in black ink but Wizkid’s outfit changes from the OG Tee and trouser to a plain vest; his posture also takes a shift from the hand covering one -half of his face with his head tilted to the right (from the viewer’s perspective) to him doing the prayer hands on the left photo and crossing both hands while placing them on his shoulders, making for two different photos this time around.

Wizkid releasing Made In Lagos (Deluxe) can be considered strategic because as of recent, “Essence” has gained massive traction overseas which warranted in its remix being released two weeks ago and just this week, the album’s original version peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard World Albums Chart.

Just like the original version, Wizkid continues the recurring soothing calm sound, creating a midtempo sound over lush productions while its lyricism referring to the female body and the sensusal tension and pleasure he derives from associating with them. To achieve this, he taps P2J, PPrime and frequent collaborators Legendury Beatz to work their magic on the instruments.

Enough said, listen to Made In Lagos (Deluxe):
