Favorite Nigerian Tumblrs

Contributor: Muse Origins

Tumblr is one of the most exciting blog platforms around. You find so many obscure images on there…I even prefer it a lot more to Flickr. Also, you’ll see a lot of specialized blogs, e.g. those focused on Africa. I’m always excited to find a Tumblr blog that is focused on Africa, and I get even more excited when I see one focused on Nigeria. Since I’ve joined Tumblr, I’ve followed some really interesting Nigerian blogs. These are my favorite:

That Nigerian Kid: This site is full of music, fashion, art and photography, all from Nigeria.

Numbla: The name is a funny mixes of Nigeria and Tumblr – Numbla. It’s simply all things Nigerian.

The Afrohemian Nomad: This Nigerian blogger is a hippie at heart, and dreams and blogs about Africa.

The 37th State: The 37thState Online blog showcases urban and African culture and lifestyle and also features work from their production house and team

Nigerian Nostalgia: This inspiring blog shows the Nigeria of the late 19th century to the 1980s.

African Mythology: This site has everything about African mythology, legends, gods, goddesses and fables.

Ukpuru: This blog showcases vintage photographs from the Nigerian Niger-Delta region.

I Am Forever Nigerian: This blog features everything Nigerian, from fashion, style, food, weddings, photography, jokes to original funny gifs!

Visit these sites for a dose of Nigerian!

    This is good. You have no idea how much you’ve solved the culture-loss problem. There is another group of people who could benefit from this too: the Afro-Brazilians; primarily citizens of Bahia. It’s Yoruba peoples and culture over there too. But the culture is waxing cold because of insufficient modern visualization such as these… they hang on to word of mouth and pictures which can only be seen through the mind’s eye. But this… this is revolutionary. I will do my part to being this to them, but making them a focus group will also help. Bless up!!
