E-nigeria! an acronym for Electronic Nigeria is founded and edited by Desmond Ike-Chima in the year 2013 after his exit from Hello Nigeria Magazine, a franchise of Hello magazine in iHola Spain.
Desmond Ike-Chima asides having an in-depth media experience spanning over a decade, before establishing his brain child, E-nigeria! was in the league of foremost professional journalists who exited the print media sector to embrace online journalism in Nigeria after the Linda Ikeji and Bellanaija generation.
Before metamorphosing into E-nigeria! Desmond Ike-Chima blogged under brand names like like Myemag, Gistclan, Report Nigeria between 2009 – 2012.
In a audacious attempt at progressing to a higher ground and of course with the assistance and backing of Niyi Tabiti famously called Gistmasta, whose humility, tenacity and passion for web development/management is second to non, my first professional news website was set up and began to run. Even though most of my colleagues then made mockery of me each time I shared my stories on platforms like Facebook, I was convinced that online was the future of journalism
As an emerging journalist I simply developed a knack for expressing myself in writing and those moments when stories or news authored by me made cover of the newspaper/magazine were my greatest and most fulfilling moments.
However the biggest challenge then in most media houses across Nigeria were greedy, overbearing and overpowering Editors who make life unbearable for young and emerging reporters like me.
Due to the power vested on them as the gatekeepers of media establishments, most Editors sat on reporters’ stories and deliberately refuse to publish them for flimsy reasons. This gradually dwindled the passion of most reporters who soon went into oblivion while others veered into new professions after suffering multiple blows.
The above stated observation led Desmond Ike-Chima into discovering citizen journalism pretty early, following extensive research. He began to study the sector; taking up professional courses to broaden his knowledge of what later became the new reality that swept off the feet of majority of Nigerian newspaper establishments like a hurricane.
Through dedication and hard word Desmond Ike-Chima is not only a journalist, but a new media specialist, strategist and search engine optimization – SEO consultant in Nigeria who is also vast in entertainment.
