Forums in recent years has become one of the dominant online platforms in the world although it seems to be rare in Nigeria.

So, recently I stumbled on a heated argument on Twitter, about the top 10 forums in Nigeria.

As a passionate writer, i was urged to conduct an in-depth research and analysis on all Nigerian forums .

To make my research an informative and in-depth one; I sparked up discussions/arguments on 9 different social media platforms and forums.


Also, I hit up my Google search engine. In addition, I utilized my google-trends and rankings respectively . Alongside  online questionaires that I forwarded to some popular bloggers in Nigeria.

After 2 weeks of documentation and forum hunting , I came out with the best forums in Nigeria currently. However, it’s adviceable that you study this entire article for in-depth knowledge of the criteria used in picking these top 10 forums in Nigeria.


CRITERIA Used in Selecting

(The Best forums in Nigeria)

To make the selection process clear and transparent , below are the factors put into consideration before choosing the current Best forums in Nigeria in 2021.

  • Users : firstly, I analyzed the total number of user’s in each forum .
  • Activeness: the participation/engagement of the members in each forum.
  • Forum traffic. I used Alexa Ranking to document the total traffic each website gets per 90 days.
  • Service provided : Furthermore, I also studied the rate at which each forum helps / solves its users problem because that is actually one of the main goals of joining any forum.

Note: I didn’t Consider the age of any of the forums because some forums has been around for some time but couldn’t reach its potential . Therefore, this compilation is strictly Based on the quality of each forum .



For the sake of those who don’t understand what a Forum is. Basically, a Forum is a platform where the members/Users get the opportunity to air their views and opinions.

In the same vein , members of a Forum has freedom to publish articles based on their expertise. For Example, Business ideas, political views, handwork , educational qualifications etc.

However, forum admins have the arbitrary power to mute , ban , remove , delete or decline any Member/ post that does not go in-line with their rules and regulations .
