Nigeria: Is the Nigerian Blogosphere Dying?

Grandiose Parlor asks, “Is the Nigerian Blogosphere Dying?,”: “Obifromsouthlondon, the Nigerian blogger (UK) at Soul on Ice, leads the pack of Bloggers that did a sudden somersault and “closed shop” to the surprise of their readers. It’s almost a year since Obi has “gone fishing” and moved on to a life away from the blogosphere.
It did end there, some days ago another UK-based Nigerian blogger- Nkem at African Shirts, followed suit.
Today I read on Sokari’s Black Looks statements that strongly suggest she too has had enough.”

    Far from it the Nigerian blogosphere is just waking up. I see a few up and coming blogs that will more than compensate for the departed.
