Maybe, just maybe, he might celebrate his birthday in Nigeria. (his birthday is on November 19).
A few months ago, Dorsey announced in a tweet his plans to visit four African nations; Ethiopia, Ghana, Nigeria, and South Africa in November, spending time with African entrepreneurs.

His trip comes three years after a similar visit to Nigeria by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. After jogging through the streets of Lagos and meeting with developers, he traveled to Abuja where he met with President Buhari at the presidency.
According to Techpoint, Dorsey’s visit to Africa was known, but his itinerary was a secret until he appeared in Lagos yesterday.
Dorsey intends to meet with some Nigerian entrepreneurs behind closed doors and might have plans to introduce Square to entrepreneurs and the African market.
