Who Is The Owner/Founder/CEO Of And

NAIJ (Naij dot com) is one of the leading online news and entertainment sites in Nigeria that attracts millions of visitors monthly and in recent years has plunged itself as part of Nigeria mainstream online media hub for breaking news across the country and beyond just like Vanguard, Punch, The Sun etc.

On the other hand, JIJI (Jiji dot ng) is one of the leading and surviving online classified sites in Nigeria that also attracts millions of visitors monthly who search for varieties of items and services for good bargains.

Though these two online companies Naij and Jiji operate mostly in Nigeria but their ownerships/CEOs have always been subject of inquisition.

Secondly, we decided to talk about Naij and Jiji together because it might surprise you to know that both Naij and Jiji emanated from the same non-Nigeria source (Parent company)

Like many others out there, it is not uncommon to easily hold the same notion that since Naij and Jiji operates mainly in Nigeria, that they are also owned by Nigerians, maybe by a Nigerian internet mogul.

But the first surprising fact about Naij and Jiji is that none of these two giant sites is owned by a Nigerian!
And now goes the question; who is then the owner of Naij and who is also the owner of Jiji?
Without further ado, as we have stated that both Naij and Jiji emanated from the same source and both companies are the brainchild of Ukrainian “Genesis Technology Partners” internet conglomerate with headquarter in Brovary, Kyiv Ukraine.

The CEO of Genesis Technology Partners, the parent company of Naij and Jiji is Russian Vladimir Mnogoletniy.

And while Naij and Jiji operate independently away from their parent company, the CEO of Jiji is Ukrainian Anton Wolyansky but the owner/CEO of Naij has been shrouded in utmost secrecy but we were able to unravel Naij dot com owner.

While some online report is crediting Naij ownership to the Belarusian Vital Laptenok, we were able to gather that Vital Laptenok is not really the owner/founder of Naij but he is a Growth Hacker at Naij’s parent company Genesis Technology Partners and the owner/founder of Naij is actually a Greek in the person of Georgios Vlachou who also doubles as the owner of one of Kenya's most visited news sites TUKO (Tuko dot co dot ke).

When it comes to the owners/founders/CEO of the popular Naij and Jiji online media companies, those are the major figures.
