Netnaija blog is underrated
Nairaland is a forum , access by everybody
i must admit your blog very informative .Nice post
Haha, great compilations list. One day, I hope to make this list too.
I think this list should be updated yearly, there are new successful bloggers mentioned.
Everytime they talk about bloggers, this are always the list.
But, this is inspiring though.
I just stumbled on this list, things have changed really fast when this list was made, someone mentioned up there about naijatechguide making the list, that dude has been around for over a decade now, and has been a go-to source for us when it comes to anything tech.
Nice list, but there are some names I expected to be there but did not find…
Still okay though.
I salute all the ideas and contributions of bloggers here, the list is open and you will be add up and i also. Thanks
Interesting to see Nigeria most successful blog.
Hard work is the key.
Nice article, the list is indeed complete.
What a wonderful post. Keep it up!
linda, ma role model
This guy Justnaija nkor
I believe someday I will become a successful blogger
This is Absolutely Great.
Looks like the way we see blogging in Nigeria isn’t the way whites see it.
Congratulations to these great bloggers who made it to this list. I pray one day and very soon, I will be the number I blogger not just in Nigeria but the world at large. It’ll only take time.
Great people, I will get there someday.
This post seriously need updating, azeez makinde of naijaloaded is not even on the list…
Of a truth, all the bloggers mentioned or ranked are great minds and are doing great works in blogging. Their inputs in blogging are well noticed for all to see.
Thanks for Sharing… We don know those who dey power
What about Tooxclusive Tyler
Congratulations to those who made the lists.
what about 9jaflaver ceo
It’s always the same set of people everywhere whereas they are many new bloggers making waves currently.
Thanks for sharing this
You guys should keep Posting will always be available to read
Jide Ogunsanya is doing very well. congratulations to him.
Some day i will be here.
I just hope as I rise, this list will be updated so I can become the number one.
Wow this website is so amazing.
Nice List….. Tooxclusive is missing….
Wow,! Amazing list.
I promise to be there soon.
SureLoaded Will Be Chosen to be The African Number One Entertainment And Music Website. By the special grace of God. ????❤️
I wish you all success in your endeavors..I hope we all get there someday.meanwhile I strongly recommend that all upcoming bloggers should have a forum where they can interact and help each other to grow…wat do u tink guys?
Wow! Starting early is very important.
Those are the best, Good research for the list bro. God bless your hand work
Linda Ikeji alway top the list…
Bravo to her
Wow great list!
tooxclusive isn’t there
This is a great list and they can serve as role models for upcoming bloggers
I hope to be mentioned here someday
Wow you’re doing a great job on here.
The list was comprehensive but naijaloaded should have been in no 3 or 4.
Beautiful. My name will be here someday
This is a great list, but I don’t know your criteria though, cos I was expecting to see the likes of Jaguda.com, mp3bullet.com, and even 9jaflever.com, those guys are really trying when it comes to the music industry.
Congrats to all those who made it on the list.
Soon, only soon, I will be there.
I pray that one day I should get to this kind list. However, you have not mention the owner of Naijatechguide.com I think he should also be mention in this list.
I cant believe I read this from the beginning to the end, thanks for clarifying that nairaland’s boss is no blogger. It seems people always confuse a forum platform with a blog.
I’m just watching. I’ll get to the list one day
The ranking need to be updated
Good but try and update your the list… They’re more bloggers at there.
Am sure one day I will make it to top 10
I so much respected this list but I guess time has changed and people has taken over.
in this age and time, we can’t still be mentioning Linda and some others on the list. Just expressing my mind though… No itch
They are all doing fine…I hope many of us will take those steps at a time to make it as well to the lime light…good luck budding bloggers!
Nice ranking.. I believe i will get there some day too
Wow , that’s great for Nigeria, am a Nigerian but I was raised in UK , this is nice wow

Nigeria is now filled with a lot of blogs with thousands been created everyday. Though, most of the bloggers you listed above are outstanding.
Amazing list, all this list still makes the top blog in Nigeria for me.
Jide Ogunsanya is still the best blogger in Nigeria to me
Am looking up to these great bloggers and I hope that one day my blog (gistofthis.com) too gain rank like theirs.
i will be the best blog in history by God grace. mark my words. its my calling
This is a great list and they are all great people…but I am surprised these same guys has been on the forefront since the beginning of blogging in Nigeria. shows there isn’t much progress in youth.
This is nice, long live all their legacies as we hope for new faces in the industry….

Kodus to all my bloggers,mined blog is still on the way the sky is not going to be my limit but my starting point………..
The list complete…just that there’s some news popular blog run by people unknown
beautiful and impressive. keep it going.
I Am Very Sure That By God Grace My Name Shall Be There.
Nice one..I know I will get there someday..
Congrats to my Naija blogger friends
Sure it’s a great list
Writerincharge by Bamidele is a blog I so much respect. I think most of his readers are sources from abroad. He is a good coach to many who want to learn freelancing. The list is ok. but I guess, we should have it reviewd by now to reflect the current change.
Its a shame Linda still has a basic amateuristic site design, she need to take her blog more serious.
I was going to say that bro. Being the no. 1 blogger in Nigeria has to call for classic site design and layout and not just the name.
Jide ogusanya, i know you will be there. You inspired me.
High Five to you.
My health / recipe blog is growing and I hope to make it to this?? list someday.
Nice List and still relevant. Big ups to you guys. May God bless my hustle too.
Wow! I am inspired to break limitations. Watch out For Flashlearners
What a wonderful list. Heros of naija list
I will get there some day, kudos to all the successful bloggers in Nigeria
Great list! Its good to know that Nigerian bloggers are really killing it! Young and upcoming bloggers should be encouraged!
Nairaland is an awesome forum, but wish there were other Nigeria forum in its class. There’s something about monopoly that doesn’t allow for variety or consider the user experience.
Competition brings out the best in any company.
This is good those people work hard to get there today and is all about having the passion that determines your next level for up coming bloggers like me you start now to work hard
This awesome! Ideas is indeed capital… It’s all about having the passion and the will to start from scratch. Thank you for sharing this..
Those heights by great men won and kept were not achieved by sudden flight, but their companion slept were toiling upward in the night
I wish you all success in your endeavors..I hope we all get there someday.meanwhile I strongly recommend that all upcoming bloggers should have a forum where they can interact and help each other to grow…wat do u tink guys?
Awesome list! Will be looking to seeing the list of top tech blogs in Nigeria by RanksNG.
