Be it their scholarships, supporting them in education, or bringing them closer to their culture through Nigerian music and fashion, the community connects Nigerians worldwide.
The closer we look around ourselves, the more we notice how the world has changed in unimaginable ways, thanks to the many developments and tech advancements it has witnessed over the years, propelling forward not just industries and communities but also people at large. It was time to also build dedicated communities to work for their people and help create opportunities that could lead them towards their definition of success and growth. That is how Naija Nation came into being, as a group of Nigerians felt the need to tend to their community members and serve them with things that could connect them worldwide.
Naija Nation is all about the coming together of Nigerians from across the world, celebrating and solidifying the members of their community. The community has been built to celebrate their people and culture and offer them a platform to commune, support and reflect the Nigerian community. The team behind Naija Nation is for supporting Nigerians as they flourish independently and walk their respective paths towards creative, professional, and personal growth. Naija Nation was built with the aim to preserve the Nigerian culture and identity and to support and grow the family to help them succeed and be known for all they have to offer the world.
They are all about owning their culture. Naija Nation came into being after a group of Nigerian millennials discussed their community and realized they lacked a common ground and platform on which the members of the Nigerian diaspora could gather, which could uplift the members and help them share the Nigerian narrative. This led to Naija Nation becoming a movement. In 2020, they formed a team to change the landscape of Nigerian representation and co-founded Naija Nation.
To promote education in the community, they founded the Naija Nation Legacy Foundation (https://naijanationlegacyfoundation.org/), offering scholarships to the community members, irrespective of their age or level of education. They also offer Nigerian music, where members can explore curated playlists highlighting Nigerian musicians and also have a Nigerian fashion line, exuding the vibrant energies of the Nigerian heritage.
