The internet community in Nigeria is currently on the increase and most of these internet users are always looking for answers to their questions, hence the need for Nigerian discussion forums.
Are you like one of these internet users and you’re currently searching for some Nigerian discussion forums to share or answers some questions or generally have fun? Then this post is for you as it will be about the best online forums in Nigeria.
Before starting this post, I’ll like to explain what online forums actually mean and how they can help you.
What’s An Online Forum?
An online forum is simply a multi-author website where anyone can share what he/she thinks about a topic.
These online forums are supervised by some Moderators A.K.A MODS. Their major duty is to ensure that the forums are clean from spam and negative comments at all times.
Major benefits you can get from an online web forum(Nigerian forums in this case) are:
- Real-time news update(unless it’s a niche-focused forum).
- Job opportunities
- Make money – By sharing links to your blog(if you own one), affiliate links, consulting e.t.c
- Admission guide/assistance
The list of stuff that you can benefit from various Nigerian online forums is just endless. While some Nigerian internet users leverage these opportunities, others just sit with their devices and keep wasting precious time and mobile data.
Best Nigerian Discussion Forums Right Now
Most discussion forums in Nigeria are very popular, while some are still growing. Well, this my own list of the best Nigerian discussion forums.
This list was compiled carefully using some major factors for ranking websites and not just the traffic rank alone. Some of these factors include daily traffic, user engagement, the overall quality of the forum, the number of active users daily and lots more.
Here is the list of best internet forums in Nigeria and their purposes.

Who compiles a list like this without the almighty Nairaland? HELL, NO ONE.
Nairaland is arguably the best internet forum in Nigeria and the most visited in the whole of Africa.
With over 2 million+ registered users and 4 million+ topics, Nairaland is one of the most visited websites in Nigeria.
Nairaland was founded by a Yoruba man named Seun Osewa in the year 2005. His main motive as at that time was to bring Nigerians together for discussions and also give them the opportunity to meet each other.
This forum covers all topics relating to Nigerians and outstanding topics are featured on its homepage. If you haven’t heard of Nairaland visit the website at – nairaland.com.

Nigeria message board is a forum which was created in 2014 with the major aim of connecting Nigerian together online.
This forum also features many topics related to Nigerians just like Nairaland. It is a free forum where you can also get answers to questions and ask people too.
This is a very a very active Nigerian forum that majorly focuses on topics about entertainment, news, and gist in Nigeria. So if you’re a gist kinda person, you’ll definitely love it.
Gistmania is actively updated with new entertainment gist daily. It’s also linked with NaijaPals – another Nigerian discussion forum.
This is a niche-focused forum in Nigeria. It’s a very active forum that focuses mainly on Nigerian music, films, and news.
As a member of NaijaPals, you’ll also get to watch and download various movies and songs for free. This forum is one of the most interesting forums in Nigeria and could be worth your time.

It’s also a cool forum and features some of the latest news in Nigeria daily.

NBF also have a large number of active sections which includes education, career, business, health, arts e.t.c. This is a very good forum and a must visit for youngsters or admission seekers in Nigeria.
This is not necessarily a forum, it can be best described as a Question and Answer(Q/A) website where users can ask various questions and instantly get replies from other registered members on the website.
It has an interface which is very similar to Quora(a Q/A site too) and is currently one of the best Q/A websites I’ve seen in Nigeria.
It’s an interesting website to visit in your spare time because of the many quality replies that are left on the platform daily.
All forums in Nigeria cannot be on this list. However, some have proven to show contents that are of high quality and cannot be overlooked by me, hence ill include them here.
Some of these forums are listed below:
