With an audience of 1.4million in Kenya and Rwanda, Love Matters Africa makes a pit stop in Nigeria as a digital platform where adolescents on the continent can discuss sexuality and sexual health issues.
In a press statement released by the outfit, it describes itself as a regional platform that serves the Nigerian audience. Their Nigerian audience has been growing in leaps and bounds since their launch in June 2018, garnering over 200,000 followers.
The underlying objective of Love Matters Naija is to “engage young people on sexual reproductive health and rights (SRHR) issues away from the public eye”. The movement also provides a safe haven for asking questions, seeking advice, seeking SRHR services and interacting with a peer group in Nigeria who form a growing team of writers, bloggers, editors, SRHR counsellors and content producers.
Love Matters Naija launched officially in Lagos, Nigeria on the 27th March 2019. The event brought together high-profile celebrities and prominent bloggers from Nigeria, along with key partner organizations that work in the SRHR field. Taking social media by storm, it is safe to say that Love Matters Naija has officially landed in Nigeria.
