In line with the Y! brand essence that focuses on issues and ideas that central to the informed and engaged young Nigerian, from November 1, YNaija.com brings you the Y! Superbloggers Series, another milestone in the life of what has become Nigeria’s leading youth brand.
This series will feature an ultimate 100 bloggers who, daily, will provide a feast of ideas, experiences, discussions and debate over a range of issues from food to technology, sex to religion. It extends the Y! mission to inspire thought, provoke action and stimulate growth.
Over the past year, YNaija.com has gained the distinction of being an issues-compass—with opinions, editorials, features, analyses, commentary and essays that focus on the issues, debates and conversations that are front-and-centre for an aware youth population.
In March, we launched the YNaija FrontPage—a daily op-ed series on the site that will present exciting voices on national issues, from the perspective of young leaders. Taking direct inspiration from the wildly popular Thisday BackPage, it provides informed, authoritative commentary on national issues (with a focus on politics/economy) in a way that guides and/or influences a generation interested in a Nigeria that works. As intended, the FrontPage has very quickly become a reference point for informed observations and an authentic guide to the perspective of Nigeria’s Y! Generation.
In April, we launched the 30 Days, 30 Voices series, a bi-monthly series, focused beyond politics and the economy and give rich insight into the mind and life of a still evolving generation. The series aims to get and share various writers with varying experiences across the world.
“The new series goes to strengthen our position as the most influential contemporary culture force in Nigeria, especially for the upwardly mobile young person,” says Aziza Uko, who is its editor-at-large. “If you ask yourself: What are young people thinking – and talking about – right now? YNaija.com is the place to go.”
The Y! Superbloggers Series showcases leading Nigerian bloggers whom are insightful, knowledgeable, and original and focused on health, beauty, environment, finance, advocacy, entertainment, social commentary, fashion, relationships, faith, and career development.
The Y! Superbloggers is a daily series and will feature on YNaija.com’s lead column. This unique ensemble includes 20 refreshing bloggers who represent the professional, educated, motivated, and young Nigeria.
The series kicks off daily from November 1, 2012. See some of the bloggers below:
