All The Ways To Get Closer To Zikoko’s Heart

July 3, 2020

We’re working hard to connect with you. That’s why when we saw the chance to bring Zikoko closer to those who appreciate us, we ran with it. We’ve created a set of communities you can join in order to be closer to the heart of what we do. 

Zikoko Community

These communities offer you and other users a safe space to discuss topics that you care about: money, japa, women and men issues, living in Nigeria, health, sex and relationships. They also offer the opportunity to relax with games, quizzes and other activities. As a part of the community, you’ll be the first to know about our events, plans and all the other exciting projects we’re working on. 

Members of these communities also get the chance to discuss with Zikoko authors and sometimes see what goes on behind-the-scenes!

Here are some communities you can join today:

  1. The Zikoko WhatsApp Community: This was created for you, the dedicated Zikoko reader in mind. When new content comes out on the Zikoko website, members of the Zikoko WhatsApp community are the first to get it. Beyond this, It’s a cool community that is capable of connecting members with the best possible lifestyle opportunities.

    Join this community to meet other Zikoko lovers like you.
