These Nigerian Celebrity News websites are many and all share similarities and for that reason we shall be focused on the oldest and most popular among them.
A lot of these gossip blogs copy and paste. So it is normal to sometimes find contents on these blogs that match word for word the contents on others. In other words the most popular blogs in Nigerian really do not care about journalism as a practice or the need to be original when it comes to the content they post.
However there are one or two Nigerian blog out there trying their best to be different even though they are not as popular as the big names or even draw any major internet traffic at all.
