Kemi blogger Olunloyo

Popular Nigerian blogger, Kemi Olunloyo, is celebrating 20 years as Nigeria’s first blogger with a promise to empower 100 youths across the 36 states with blogging skills.

Olunloyo in a post via her Instagram page on Friday afternoon highlighted how she started blogging on December 6, 1999, in the United States.

According to her, Uche Pedro who is Nigeria’s second blogger and Linda Ikeji the nation’s third blogger started blogging in 2004 and 2007 respectively.

Among the early pioneers of blogging in Nigeria, Olunloyo said she remains the only one who has shared tips on how to be a successful blogger with Nigerian youths.

To celebrate her two decades of blogging as Nigeria’s first blogger, she revealed that in 2020 she intends to secure funding for 100 youth in 36 states to learn how to blog and become independent entrepreneurs, an initiative she urged Pedro and Ikeji to also adopt in the coming year.

She wrote:

“CELEBRATING 20 years AS THE FIRST NIGERIAN BLOGGER🇳🇬 Thank you PYRA LABS and parent company @google for giving me a platform to blog. Weblogging is referred to as Blogging. I started December 6th 1999 while living in the United States.

“Blogger is a blog-publishing service that allows multi-user blogs with time-stamped entries. It was developed by Pyra Labs, which was bought by Google in 2003. The blogs are hosted by Google and generally accessed from a subdomain of blogspot.com. Blogs can also be served from a custom domain owned by the user (like www.example.com) by using DNS facilities to direct a domain to Google’s servers. A user can have up to 100 blogs per account. I owned 6 global blogs in the last 20 years that were popular in the 90’s under Keminications Digital Media and PR.

“Celebrity Single moms, Keminications Media Gossip, HipHossip Music blog, HNNAfrica world news, 1600 Girls (White House daughters), Snitchlady Gun Violence news.

“The second blogger Nigeria produced was Uche Pedro 2004 who started in Canada and now the successful owner of the @bellanaijaonline assets. The third is Linda Ikeji of @lindaikejiblogofficial in Nigeria 2007.

“I am the only one who has taught blogging and SHARED tips and intelligence. I urge Uche and Linda to do the same in 2020. We cannot empower youth by keeping our business secrets to ourselves.

“New research shows that the average Nigerian youth is now making money online training at “Yahoo Schools” constantly the target of crackdowns by the @officialefcc when they can be blogging and monetizing social media platforms like lucrative YouTube channels.

“Pls, congratulate me on 20 YEARS OF BLOGGING. I became a Journalist in 1994 celebrating 25 years and a professional blogger 1999. Stay tuned for my 2020 blogging classes as I tour the continent.”

Nasarawa Deputy Governor tasks journalists on investigative reportage

Published

on

Dr. Emmanuel Akabe, Nasarawa State Deputy Governor has tasked journalists in the state on investigative reportage of issues based on facts to avoid sensationalism.

Akabe made the call on Friday in Lafia when the State Executive Council members of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), paid him a courtesy visit to introduce the newly elected officials of the council.

He said that the current digital era provided journalists with unimaginable access to information, hence practitioners must go beyond the surface to investigate and unravel facts before going to press.

The deputy governor noted that journalism is a noble profession and required practitioners to adhere to the ethics by reporting issues truthfully devoid of sentiments.

He decried recent reports about him in the media where it was alleged that the State House of Assembly had set up a committee to probe him over funds for coronavirus (COVID-19) in the state.

“I, being the chairman of the state COVID-19 committee,  was the one who suggested to the Speaker of the assembly on the need for the house to set up a committee on COVID-19 to ensure all-inclusive effort in the fight against the pandemic.

“Then before you know, journalists started reporting that the house of assembly was probing me.

“I made the suggestion because the executive has a committee on COVID-19, the traditional rulers have their own and it good for the assembly to have their own so that we would all sensitize people on the virus,” he added.

Akabe also said that the state COVID-19 committee had publicly given an account of donations and expenditure to the press.

The deputy governor also pointed out that the Governor Abdullahi Sule-led administration was not afraid of criticism provided it was constructive and aimed at ensuring correction for the overall development of the state.

He also assured NUJ of the determination of his office and indeed the state government to support them where necessary.

Akabe, therefore, promised to donate two sets of table tennis boards, chairs, and the television sets to the union.

Earlier, Salihu Mohammed Alkali, NUJ state council Chairman, thanked the deputy governor and the government for their support to journalists through the provision of enabling working environment.

The NUJ chairman also assured the deputy governor of the union’s determination to partner the government toward ensuring better reportage of activities in the state.
