We Can All Have a Good Time if You Hear Us Out

April 5, 2022

Good day fans and friends of Zikoko. I’m here to convince but not confuse you that Zikoko’s drops for the month of April are — as the kids say — fire. Purrrrr.

In the last year, there’s been a lot of movement within the team. We’ve workshopped stories, angles, formats and even team structures. This took a while to get done, but we’re finally at a place where I can say, “Get ready. We’re here.”

Why are we here?

Zikoko is dropping two new flagships this month: Hear Me Out and My Bro. Here’s why you should get excited.

Zikoko strives to be at the forefront of important conversations that should be talked about.


We do this by examining our lived experiences through humour, satire and compelling storytelling.

Hear Me Out

This year, Ifoghale and Ibukun decided, “People, we have opinions. We’d like to put them out there as we’re thinking it [with editorial judgement of course].” And so, Hear Me Out was birthed.

Should the world let young people breathe? Should we adopt phone sex in all relationships? Do we need to reinvent politics? Hear Me Out will talk about all the stuff people might normally get dragged for, but with intelligence. The sheer range of topics that will be covered means that the stew will eventually reach everybody.

In the next three months, Ifoghale and Ibukun will try to convince you about the opinions they’ve formed through their experiences. Expect the drop every Saturday at 9 a.m. WAT.

Don’t tell those two I said this, but a personal favourite of mine is the My Bro column, which drops on Friday next week. And I’ll tell you why I’m feverish from malaria excitement.

My Bro

The most the world knows about men’s relationships with other men is that everything gets sorted at a pub, surrounded by bottles of beer. But we’ve been in this game long enough to know that there’s a lot more to people and their relationships than is visible externally. So we brought a magnifying glass to show everyone what happens when two men are close to each other and actively try to make their relationships work.

My Bro is a series where two men talk about their friendships in a safe space. From April to June, each story will be up on our website, social media, newsletters or wherever you get your Zikoko goods at 12 p.m. WAT on Friday, biweekly.

P.S: In the next few months, our team of writers and editors are coming up with the most engaging stories about being a Nigerian in the world. We’re talking new formats, new content buckets, and new looks. What I’m trying to say is, we’ve spent months planning to bring the most relatable stories to you, so get ready for enjoyment. 

With these few points of mine, I hope I’ve been able to convince… you know how the rest goes.
