#NairalandAlternatives | ForumsInNigeria
Nairaland is unarguably the largest forum in Nigeria and Africa. But there are other topic-specific forums you might not be aware of. Check the complete list of naija forums below.
But first, let’s look at the composition of Nairaland forum:
Nairaland has three major categories, and 39 subcategories.
Nairaland/General category has the highest subcategory (22).
This is followed by entertainment, with 10 subcategories, followed by science/technology, which has seven subcategories.
At the time of compiling this list (April 14, 2018} the African largest forum has 1,988, 400 registered members with 4,187,656 topics created so far.
An unverified sources said Google had made several attempts offering Seun Oshewa millions of dollars, just to acquire Nairaland.
Sadly, google was said to have rejected Nairaland Adsense application till Seun began getting independent sponsors.
Nairaland is now rumoured to be making in a week revenue which could have been impossible to make in a month if he were to be using Google’s Adsense.
However, there are other alternatives to nairaland, which are really doing good in their own world.
Here is the complete list of other forums in Nigeria.
Mokoshalb forum may not all that be popular as you would have expected it to be, but this is one of the best forums in technology.

More than three other forums you would later find in this list has different categories , including religion talks.
However, a christian forum is here. It covers all denominations and biblical talks and discussions.
You’ve got the best christian based forum in Nigeria. It’s relatively new, but we see the forum founded by Mr. Ayuba growing beyond his imagination as he invests more time into building it.
It must be noted that the success of this forum depends on how firm the moderators are to fight against unreligious posts, and spam messages.
Jide Ogunsanya’s blog has done brilliantly well in the area of how tos, and tutorials on how to make money online through blogging and other online businesses.
Coming up with a platform where his fans and Netpreneurs could converge and share tips on how they have been able to achieve success is another brilliant idea from Jide, who is himself an NETPRENEUR.

Popularly known as Nigeria’s Creative Talent, nct.com.ng focuses on 9 areas with its sections, but we’ve discovered that more of java script tutorial and hacking tips are popular on this forum you probably didn’t know exist.
You are at liberty to pick from any of the following sections, create and reach out to the rest of the world, they include: General topics, Education, Business, Health, Fashion, Webmasters, Entertainment, Programming, Graphics & Multimedia Designs.
What we found interesting about this forum is the fact that it focuses on topics from which you can learn and start something significant online to start making money.
This is another Nigerian forum which template and design is completely closely related to nairaland interface .
This forum depends on sponsored posts and revenue from Google’s AdSense as sources of earnings.
Keeping and running a functional forum isn’t a joke. It requires hard work from owners and moderators.
Kudos to the founder of this forum for taking up the challenge. We can’t wait to see this public forum rock Nigerian Internet space in the years ahead.
An average SSS 2 Nigerian student has his own browsing phone, checking admission, how to gain admission , and other student-related topical issues.
Myschool forum is simply the perfect place for students.
The founder of myschool.com.ng , a website for education news, has taken a great decision by the creation of this forum, consolidating on its existing user base among students.
There may be unverified education and admission posts on this forum considering the target, we urge you never pay anyone to gain admission.
When you find stories you’re not sure of, visit the specific school official website to authenticate before taking further actions.
Even when such posts are verified, you are not to pay anyone who meet on myschool forum or any other public discussion forum.
This isn’t peculiar to nearly all public forums that’s why moderators keep vigil, work 24/7 to reduce the level of spam, and fraudulent posts.
Founded by Maxence Melo, Jami forum discussions and topics cut across Africa, this ,we think, has really helped the forum to experience great growth since its launch.
At the time of publication (April 14,2018), this forum had 1,155,619 million topics; 26, 358,157 posts and 436,834 registered members.
Do you love politics? You’ve got the freedom to air your views here.
With 140,357 registered members, earlyface is another forum in Nigeria that is gradually becoming popular to internet users. It offers general news and users are able to discuss on topics of their choice. It is easy to use and mobile friendly.
This is another nairaland forum alternative you can explore for topics cutting across breaking news, politics and entertainment and celebrity gist, love and religion and others.
NaijaPal is Nigeria’s forum, which is dominated by ladies and guys who who want to connect from across the world.
This is done through its chatting services with a large number of following both home and abroad.
This is unarguably Nigeria’s largest Social Network that allows you watch naija movies for free, you’re charged for data by your career anyway.
It also has large topics for you to join and engage one another.
Do you want to apply for the latest jobs in your discipline? This forum is simply founded to cater for the large number of unemployed youths in the country.
Create account and start using the forum as an employer or as an employee.
Jobs are well arranged ,which makes it easy for users and job hunters to search job that suit their needs and area of discipline.
This must have been inspired by nairaland. The design from the homepage to other categories are completely similar. You might think you are using nairaland if the domain name is blocked.
The only difference is that it uses Google Adsense as means of revenue generation, while Nairaland generates its own revenue independently using codes.
Infobase final thought:
In the course of our research, we also found out that some forums have folded up , may be, they could not cope with huge financial commitment and time.
For instance 9casandra.com which started on a good note is no longer available, while forumversity.com wasn’t available on the net at the time we compiled this list.
The bottom line is internet users in Nigeria are growing at sporadic rate, meaning the youths are excited about stuffs that could be found on the internet.
The beauty of this is you can make money online by positively using any of the forum above. It’s not just for fun.
By the time you create reputation online, you will begin to see people who are willing to do business with you.
Kudos must also be given to Seun Oshewa of nairaland forum for using its platform to show direction that it could be done.
Is there any forum by Nigerians that are not on this list, drop it and we’ll take our time to understudy how it operates, and subsequently add it to this list.
