If you are looking for the hottest and trending gists in Ibadan, Ibadan Insider has it all for you. One thing I always look out for in this blog is the list of trending movies that would be showing in Ibadan cinemas. I wanted to start that on the blog but I just thought it won't be necessary since this blog has it covered already. I might change my mind later though. I like that the blog is really colorful and very easy to navigate. They have different sections on Jobs and Events that goes on in Ibadan. To become fully infused in the family, you can become a writer on the blog too. Another reason why I love this blog is because they conduct interviews and give you step by step lessons on how to grow individually as well as how to grow your business. In fact, don't let me spill the beans too much. To check this blog, click on the link below.

First of all, I love the name. From the name, you would know that they have that Ibadan flow and ginger we are all looking for. Ibadan Kiniso is like the Linda Ikeji's blog of Ibadan. This blog covers everything running from the latest news, sports, jobs, events and everything you can think of. It also covers technology. I personally love the design. Like, it rhymes with the niche of the blog. They also have a section for fashion and articles. In the articles section, you get stories, gists and everything juicy you would love to read. Ibadan Kiniso is one of a kind and you should really check it out. To check the blog, click on the link below.

This is the biggest Ibadan blog. Someone might have thought that it would come up as my number one but nope. The biggest doesn't necessarily mean the best. However, they have lived up to national standard and they are an inspiration to many because they have been in the game for quite a while. Ibcity Info has the best blog interface amongst others. The colors are popping and if not for anything, but the colors of the blog would make you stay longer. I like that the blog allows for easy navigation and the stories are nicely written and curated. If you want to know what's up in Ibadan and more about it's people, you should check out this blog. They cover everything buzzing in the city. They are the life of Ibadan online. They also own a media house where they make magazines and have recently expanded to Abuja. Now, there is AbujaCity Info. Talk about the money rolling in!

To me, this is the richest blog about Ibadan in Nigeria. Not rich in money but rich in deep knowledge and information. Old Naija, as the name says, takes us back to what Ibadan used to be like in ancient times. It takes us back to Ibadan of old. The music, the fashion, ancient stories like the prophet that was consumed by lions. This blog is deep and it's a must read for everyone. Don't leave this post without checking this blog out. When you have more time, check it out and find time to go through their archives. The blog interface is simply cool and not loud. It's very easy to navigate. They go deep into Ibadan's culture and traditions and have pictures to defend everything. In fact, don't let me over-gist you. Simply click on the link below and thank me later.

Side Gist - First of all, Banky W and Adesua is getting married. I personally do not understand why people are shooting themselves over this news. Like, it's a normal sturv na. I'm not being a bad belle o. I'm very happy for them and wish them the best. HOWEVER, I personally wish they had kept everything low and private with the way celebrity marriages are going. Well, it's their choice. And, Toolz is pregnant. Glory to God! I'm happy about that. But, mercy's marriage just crashed. So, while she was slaying, she was being abused on the side. It is well o. Meanwhile, I have to be at the library today. I need to go and source for more materials for my project. E nor easy! But in the end, it would be worth it!
