Top relationship blogs in Nigeria. As the most populous black nation on the surface of the earth, Nigerians in a relationship are plagued with one relationship issue or the other and that brings us to the list of top relationship blogs in Nigeria to help those who their relationship is at the breaking point but do not have the kind of money to employ the services of a relationship counselor find solution(s) to their various problems.

Without further ado, below is the list of top relationship blogs in Nigeria;

1. Deedeesblog.com

This blog like every other relationship blogs that will be reviewed in this article does not write on relationships alone, it also encompasses a documentary about life’s journey and photography. The platform was borne on January 2016 out of the owner’s strong conviction to follow his passion in form of photography instead of a white collar 9-5 job where his potential was underutilized and underappreciated.

The brain behind this wonderful blog is none other than Adetola who is fondly referred to as DeeDee by friends and close associates, his many experiences when it comes to matters of the heart, challenges and several misinformed decisions as a teeming youth compelled him and made him fit to anchor this type of all encompassing platform, his sole aim is to through his many experiences help people passing through same learn from him in order to make informed decisions.

He is a drop dead romantic whose belief is deeply rooted in the concept of love being the greatest gift bestowed unto mankind. As someone who believes learning never ends, the unrelenting blog owner aims to someday be a curator, a preacher and an influencer who leads a cause and motivate people who went through thick and thin to get to the island of comfort with the sole aim to teach, inspire and make people believe in love all over again and all that it has to offer without minding the cost.

All of these he aims to do by putting his camera to use in a bid to document and tell unique stories of love, people and places via visuals. Achieving all these does not come easy but the unique story teller seems to already have a plan as to how he will get all of these done effectively to achieve his desired end result and according to him constantly talking about love, giving counsels, being consistent in his writings and surrounding himself with people who appreciate love will fast track the achievement of his goals and by so doing, he will give a voice to the voiceless through documentary photography and what he refers to as “slum blogging”.

2. Joro Olumofin

If you have been an ardent follower of blogs especially relationship blogs in Nigeria, you might have come across the name Joro Olumofin on Instagram, if yes, you already have an insight to who I am writing about but if not, let me help you with a little intro.

Joro’s type of blog is unconventional as he doesn’t make use of the popular blogging platforms like WordPress, Blogger and the likes to create his own platform, instead, he prefers to reach his audience(s) through the use of one of the top social media platforms i.e. Instagram.

This well versed relationship blogger and psychologist is widely referred to as the 21st century love doctor and the kind of presence he has built for himself on social media is massive and commendable. This achievement can be attributed to his interactive approach of thrashing controversial topics on his chosen platform. The love doctor who claims to receive about 800 emails of his readers asking for one relationship advice or the other on a weekly basis is sure a listening ear as his goal of starting this whole brand in the first place is to help Nigerians in diaspora with their daily love struggles.

Joro, who attended the University of Lagos bagged himself a Bsc and Msc award in Psychology before forging ahead academically to earn a Ph.D degree. His Instagram followers are currently close to 300,000.

Being a “love doctor” for the brain behind one of Nigeria’s top relationship blog is all about sharing real life experiences, proffering possible solutions to relationship issues, bringing people in strained courtships and creating a conducive atmosphere for strangers to meet, become friends and possibly develop love interests.

Helping people with general life issues had always been what Joro’s brand is all about, he aims to help people rebuild their relationships to a better one, make people believe in true love again as there are lots of people suffering emotionally with no one to lend them a listening ear. This is where Joro’s brand comes in as a much needed theraphy in form of a listening ear, shoulder to cry on and a link to possible solutions. The whole idea of the blog became a reality when Joro took the bold step of taking it upon himself to write and talk about issues people were scared to address.

Treating controversial topics on a daily basis attracted a lot of attention to the brand and most of this attention are from people trying to castigate Joro for publicly addressing topics considered to be sensitive. Topics like why women should keep fit and eradicate belling fat to keep their husband’s attention,men giving out their atm cards to their better halves, side chicks taking over marriages etc. are some of the reasons why people got furious with the “Love  Doktor” ab initio but as time went on, the stories became relatable and the audience who had been stoning the messiah came out to share their own experiences and the platform could not have been better.

According to Joro Olumofin, the most interesting and unforgettable story that has ever been shared on his platform was that of a lady who got fed up with being single that she planned her own wedding without having a boyfriend, talk less of a groom. From reviews, Joro’s platform is on a league of its own as its reach have a wider coverage of youths who hardly take the time to read newspaper articles that might put them through relationship strives but they make out time to be on the social media. Joro is sure worth a spot on this list.

The brain behind the creation of the blog has always been known to be Elsie Godwin and as highlighted earlier, she started late in 2013 but got serious around early 2014. She got all caught up in the information world as she had her training as a newscaster and programs researcher at Rose Radio. She went on from there to host and produce her own radio show tagged “Crux of the Matter on Happenings Radio” which was borne out of her innate desire to discuss pressing issues in a conversative manner.

The new program she started working on is aimed at people of marriageable age, single parents and married couples.

Olalekan believes starting up Loversify and getting to where he is today has always been about God’s backings and his decision to embrace his passion earlier enough. See relationships and marriages flourish endlessly, people expressing themselves fluently verbally and an environment of limitless love and possibilities are all part of the things that gladdens this author’s heart.

His prayer is for God to take away all the hurts and sufferings in this world. The brain behind Loversify’s sudden realization of the alarming rate of breakups and divorces around him let to the birth of the relationship platform which is a community of compassion set out to help all and sundry. Here, his concept of self help is redefined as getting help is quite easy with the availability of a team that is ready to tend to your emotional needs and ensure you are equipped with all it takes to sail smoothly through life’s journey.

As a kid who grew up in a polygamous family of five wives and several children, he experienced firsthand what it is like to be wholeheartedly loved and the strain a tint of hatred on a rosy relationship can cause.
