Olufamous is a blog that began its online publications
in 2012. The concept of the site is to shed light on
relevant information that Nigerian residents were
searching for. Olufamous.com kept good on that promise
and has amassed a group of dedicated followers who trust
the site. Hungry visitors flock to the website daily,
searching for news that might affect them, their

public to help shape the country in the way the people
