Introduction
Tech City NG is Nigeria’s sole and premier technology blog that is dedicated to reviews and reporting of Technology News across Nigeria through our blog and online videos hosted on YouTube.

We focus on the ever evolving ICT industry worldwide, giving the African audience a completely different serving of breaking ICT news, producing edgy phone reviews for global brands as well as reporting groundbreaking innovations in the world of technology and keeping Nigerians up to date on every and anything that has to do with technology.

Basically, as a result of the fact that in this part of the world, people see the nitty-gritty of technology as uber boring, our approach at Tech City NG is to give them the same nitty-grittiness of technology, but this time in a language, manner and form they have never seen it in.
