Welcome to the new post Most Influential Bloggers in Benue State. I hope you guys are having a great time and of cause enjoying the best moments of the season
Its no doubt that blogging has become a profession for most people who have made it successful online
but one would wonder and ask Is blogging profitable in Nigeria? because establishing your profile online as a successful blogger is nothing but a daunting task to bear
Blogging has expanded into one of the most profitable online business of all times. Have you ever heard that some bloggers are making six-figure earnings every year just for writing about something they love to write on an online platform?
Yes, you may have heard about the professional bloggers in Nigeria who are making such huge money from home quitting their jobs!
And fortunately, you can also follow the same way and can start making passive income online. Blogging is definitely one of the best online passive income businesses ever, for most students blogging has become a side hustle where they make good use of their blogs to make monetary returns while they also focus on their academics
someone like me I love it when I get amazing feedback from you guys. It is very much appreciated when you leave comments or send e-mails thanking us for helping you in some way
In Nigeria we have just a few numbers of bloggers who have made it successful in the blogosphere, the likes of Linda Ikeji, Jide Ogunsewa, Makinze Azeez and many others keep trending every day, these people have made millions blogging
Blogging is like a seed you planted which you cannot reap the same day. instead, you will have to nurture them, work on them, then they grow, mature before you can then reap them.
But if you come to blogging with the aim of overnight success you’re like planting today and reaping tomorrow even if you succeed reaping it will yield no good. Top bloggers in Nigeria will always tell you blogging is about passion
With that being said let us get over to our main topic of discussion today

Winnaijatv is your news, entertainment, sport, education, gospel fashion website. It provides you with the latest breaking news straight from the entertainment industry in Benue state and globally
Winnaijatv was founded back in November 2017 by Amonye Victor Ochofie
also know by his Nickname “Winner”
As Published By The Sun Newspaper.
AMONYE VICTOR may appear like your regular guy, but the 23-year-old Home Scientist
Undergraduate of Federal University of Agriculture Makurdi Benue Stae is the founder of one of
World’s biggest music, video, download and news, sport, stories, education, etc
In the university, he speaks with Emmanuel Benson (Beck) on his plans to reinvent the platform, challenges he has had to deal with and a whole lot of other issues.
An Interview With Winnaija Boss
How did WINNAIJA come to be?
I actually created it last year on 15th November 2017,
to be precise. It was a public holiday for my school. I was fresh on campus 200 level then.
Have always been a good internet user and I actually undergo some training in web design in Lagos in the year 2014 – 2015.
And then, I did a check and I discovered that most bloggers have no knowledge about web designing. What they do is, outsource their design and programming jobs to outsiders and those ones build based on their own understanding. But as one who has the knowledge, I know what is lacking in different platforms in Nigeria.
So I built a website to address those challenges I also got inspiration from other blogs and what motivated me the most is when I go to other blogs and can not download music, video etc they made things hard for a young guy like me.
That was how we started. At what point did you realize it was something big? With most blogs, users had to search a lot. We do most of the hard work, then get most of the information we think the World wants to know. There was an issue with UAM RESUMPTION in 2017, they already announced the date of their Resumption. It was on all Nigerian blogs but it was very hard for users to get the information.
So what we did was create a page for UAM information. That was how we were able to grow based on what we thought our users want.
Music in Nigeria is a very lucrative business, but then there were no platform offering very flexible
music downloads. What we did was that people wanted to comment. They wanted to talk about new releases even after downloading. Now, we are a niche-less blog. We do music, football, and majorly anything. We are not just a music
website, but as it is, we don’t think there is a music website that can compete with us.
How were you able to fund it at the beginning?
There is a quote that says ‘start anyhow’. When I started back in 2017, there was\ no financial power.
I just started anyhow with cheap hosting, I was able to build very good traffic with them.
After 5 months I saw that this is something promising. Then I started looking for how to raise money.
In May 2018, got a good server and started paying, but we have really grown from a 10,000 visit monthly to 5 million page views monthly. Now, we have between 10 million to 20 million page views on average. And then, the server fee has really increased. But with hard work and sponsored content, we have been able to tackle those bills.
Today, we pay up to 500 dollars monthly to just have our server running. We have about 10 staff members now What is the concept behind Winnaija TV? Every day, we put up a post on Winnaija asking people’s opinions about happenings in the entertainment industry.
And then, there is a whole lot of comments that generate buzz. We noticed that the way people comment on blogs is actually different from the way they speak in real life.
We posted one on our platform because we know Nigerians will like to be more specific. So what we
are trying to do with Winnaija TV is basically
street interviews, exclusive engagements. We also have a program called Rap Attack where we will bring students from different schools to do something like a rap battle and then put them up for
Nigerians to watch.
How soon do you intend to float the TV?
By the first week of January 2019, we will be putting up our first content. Then we can now decide what content to drop on each day of the week but we can boast that Nigerians will actually enjoy the concept of Winnaija TV.
What other concepts are you exploring? We are into show and Entertainment already we are working on various projects and in a few weeks, we will also be changing the face of our platform because we want to be more professional.
