Welcome to Kenny-s Blog

Thank You BellaNaijarians! Join us as We Celebrate a Blessed 2016 with a Look Back at Our Best Moments

Our fellow BellaNaijarians… Wow! Can you believe 2016 has come to an end?

This year has been one of the most difficult for a lot of Nigerians #FactsOnly. We’ve had to deal with the economic recession, inflated prices, job losses, personal losses and lots more. However, there have been some high points and through it all, we remember to count our blessings. It is always important to us, here at BellaNaija, to focus on and highlight the positivity.

As the year comes to an end, we are taking this moment to share our best experiences with BellaNaijarians. Without you, none of these would have been achieved.

Fave post of the year was this wonderful Ode to BNers by Bleed Blue.

Nkechi ‘Ink’ Eze, BellaNaija Weddings Editor says

“I’m so proud of how far the BellaNaija lifestyle team has come in the past year! We reached major milestones in terms of the numbers we’ve reached – we’ve expanded our online family – and the talents that have bloomed out of the team – Eki Ogunbor, Richard Akuson and more. I’m proud to have led the vision of the team, and can’t wait for what 2017 has to offer!”

Adesola Ade-Unuigbe, BellaNaija Showbiz/Events Editor says

“I’m really really looking forward to 2017. This year was a tough year but still, through it, BellaNaija and the BellaNaija team had several high points – both career wise and in our personal lives. 2017 can only be bigger for us. It is time to break more boundaries”.

Eki Ogunbor, BellaNaija Lifestyle Editor says,

I can’t thank God enough for the blessings in 2016, I’m looking forward to more favour in 2017 for the BN Team and our fellow BellaNaijarians too! Thanks for a creative year with #BNFroFriday, BN Style Your Bump, BN Body Shape Series … It’s been awesome, there will be more in 2017!

Aderonke, BellaNaija Features Ninja says,

Our Contributors gave life to BN Features and in every way added to the spice. With every dynamic view and opinion shared on BellaNaija, our community thrived and prospered. 2016 was a tough years, but we forged through… learning together and building one another. For 2017, I’ll say this: Live Your Dreams. Chase the Stars. Leave a Legacy.

IK Nwosu, BN News Guy says,

2016 was indeed a wonderful year for BellaNaija, many thanks to you BellaNaijarians. Expect more amazing stuff in 2017!

Ehinomen Rose Umane, Business Development Lead says,

2016 has been a great year for BellaNaija. We had amazing projects over the year from BBN Wonderland, BNdogood to marking our 10th anniversary. We also won major awards which is inspiring for us in terms of getting better at what we do. Expanding our online Base and getting to know what makes BNers tick was also an achievement for us. Personally, I had fun and learnt a lot with BN and I hope to explore more in this coming year. Happy New Year BNers
