Nigeria is the most populous country in Africa, with almost half of the population under the age of 18. It is also highly diverse, with more than 500 ethnic groups and languages. This makes for a very rich and dynamic media landscape, characterized by entrepreneurship, new technologies and social media, as well as a growing number of university- and community-based radio stations. We started working in Nigeria in 2018 through a strategic partnership with the Institute for Media and Society. We are now working with Pyxera Global and TechnoServe on the Rockefeller Foundation’s innovative post-harvest loss program, focusing on the tomato value chain. We look forward to expanding operations to cover more of the country in the coming years.
13 million potential listeners
By combining radio coverage maps with population density information, we estimate that our partner stations in Nigeria have a combined potential audience of more than 13 million people.
