Nigeria and Africa in extension have been under reported! Most time what we see are negative reports of wars, famine, diseases, and pestilence in Africa. We are poised to disseminate balanced news.

We help you make sense of an increasingly complex information world with a wide range of perspectives and stories that will allow you take an informed decision.

We are proud of our African heritage and keep our eyes on the world. As online media, we see digitalization as the foremost opportunity to reach new readers, customers, and African emerging markets. We are independent in our approach.

Our philosophy is grounded in the principles of a free society, which Africa is coming to terms with yet not losing the essence of what makes us African, which is our culture.

….showcasing the best part of us!
