After six successful years in Nigeria’s media space market, Nigeria’s leading online news tabloid Naij.COM has re-branded to Legit.NG. According to a message from the Managing Director of Naij.COM, Goke Olaege, reportedly says that the rebranding from the old brand means that they want to become better for our loyal audience and attract new visitors (shame to those who still don’t know about us). It is about time to come to the next level, become even more understandable and easy.
So why did we choose Legit.ng?
Inaccurate and fake news often confuse Internet users, which can lead to terrible consequences. The primary goal of NAIJ.com has always been to protect the audience from hoaxes, so the new name represents this general idea in the best way. Integrity is among our values, so we double-check all the facts before publishing and avoid using misleading or clickbait headlines.
Legit.ng core values
You will understand our vision after we say it out loud. These are the two pillars that lie at the heart of our work. The first one is about people. We create relevant content and use multiple distribution channels for our audience. You can read, watch, hear. No matter if our subscribers are audio, visual or digital learners. Everybody will be satisfied.
The next and no less important is the impact. To brighten Nigerians’ everyday lives, we cover the most significant and trending topics with an accent on local news. Like the highlight in our logo does, we emphasise the main information you need to know. Legit.ng is meant to be your guide, that leads the way through the news.
Our upgrade concerns not only the content but also the visual style of the website, that follows the latest trends, and its brand new user-friendly interface.
One more advantage of our new name (it would be a crime to omit this) is that it would be way easier to spell it.
