The internet has become a huge market place in the last few years. And varying business models have taken off based on this fact. One of them is blogging, nowadays everyone seems to have a blog. Many bloggers are getting broke and leaving blogging to do other things mainly because they don’t have the patience to see it through.
A few bloggers however have actually made it big, from blogging. If you are interested in blogging, learn all you can then, who knows you may be the next Linda Ikeji. Our metrics for calculating this is very simple, basically we check the worth of the blog on SiteWorthTraffic, how much the blog makes form adverts and Google ad sense. And if there are other sources of incomes the person has, we also check the worth of it. However, since we’re majorly looking at money made from blogging, our focus is on blog worth and blog income. You should know that the most influential bloggers in Nigeria are not necessarily the richest.
Without further ado, here are the richest bloggers in Nigeria and their net worth.
Richest Bloggers in Nigeria
Linda Ikeji- lindaikejisblog.com
You just have to get used to this lady’s name whenever the name of top bloggers come up. She wasn’t actually the first blogger in Nigeria, but she popularized it. And it has shown in her finances, she once bought her parents two houses together worth N300 million, and she bought herself a N600,000 million house on Banana Island. A lot of people say blogging cannot earn one such amount of money. The blog actually does earn her as much as she spends.
As at 2012, her blog was worth, over $1million, that was 5 years ago and now it is worth over $10million. From our findings at iDonsabi, LindaIkeji.blogspot.com makes N19.5milllion monthly on direct adverts and N39.6milllion monthly on Adsense. If you do the maths, she earns over $59 million monthly. Moreover, this is a very conservative figure. Her blog as at 2015 was worth $10million. And her net worth is N3.2 billion. This makes her the first billionaire blogger in Africa, and also the richest blogger in Africa. After now they will say, “can anything good come out of Nigeria”? I guess you can answer that question yourself. She blogs at Lindaikeji.blogspot.com.
Uche Eze Pedro- bellanaija.com
She started the first popular blog is Nigeria. Uche Pedro is an inspiration to Linda Ikeji, and it was because of her that Miss Ikeji started blogging. You see why we should be careful what we do, because you don’t know who will learn from you and even become more successful at it. I wonder if these our thieving politicians know or care about what example they are laying for the upcoming generation. In Linda Ikeji is a bigger Uche Pedro, I wonder who will be a bigger Shekau and a bigger Tinubu. Uche Pedro runs BellaNaija a lifestyle and fashion blog, the blog has also graduated to a full media outlet. She is married to Bode Pedro, the son of Lagos State former deputy governor, Femi Pedro. That’s what being rich and successful does for you, you get to roll with the high and mighty, and who know you could marry an old money. She’s worth over N2billion.
