NaijaVibes is a
blog, but it's not your regular Nigerian news
blog that we've often discussed about on our
site. It's primarily focused on music and
artists, and does its fair bit of helping
budding music artists reach their intended
audience. In fact, the site is so deeply
entrenched into the promotion of music, the
Contact Us page of the site presents the site as
a destination to promote music and boost online
artistes' publicity. It's fair to say the site's
goal is to give young and upcoming Nigerian
artistes a platform to showcase their talent to
Just go through the site's primary menu, and you
cannot unsee the site's focus on music, mixtapes,
and videos. Even the news section focuses on
only stories relating to music. If you scroll
down the page and take a look at the posts, the
majority are music videos. Therefore, if you're
visiting the site for your daily dose of news,
you would be disappointed. Kindly look up other,
more conventional Nigerian news blogs. But if
you're on the site to consume fresh Nigerian
music, you shall be very pleased.
Social Media Presence
The site is quite popular in social media
circles, with more than 200,000 fans on Facebook
and a comparatively modest set of Twitter
followers. But since Naija Vibes gains its
maximum traction through Facebook, there's not
much NaijaVibes can complain about, despite its
rather scanty Twitter follower base.
Site Design and Navigation
Probably the only aspect that the site
disappoints is with its design. For a site that
talks about music and performing artistes, a
certain level of aesthetics is expected.
Unfortunately, the site doesn't hit that level,
missing the mark by a fairly substantial margin.
This gives a very amateurish look to the site.
The navigation tools on the site are also not
something to write home about.
Moreover, for some strange reason, the site's
logo is centered and blown out of proportion. We
are not sure if our browser failed to load the
site to its fullest potential. However, we don't
think our browsers are at fault here. We tried
loading the site on different browsers such as
Chrome and Firefox multiple times, and the
NaijaVibes logo still looks overblown. We are
forced to believe the existing logo is the
original design choice. It's recommended
NaijaVibes gives a bit more importance to its
site design and development, and come up with a
cleaner and much polished site.
