The players might be an endangered species, but radio medium itself is still alive and well. Video did not kill the radio star, millions of people listen every day. Only less and less through the original, dedicated radio player. These days, most people listen to the radio in their cars or on their phones.

In the early days, radio used to be a hyperlocal thing. You were limited to radio stations within a radius of a few miles. Today, radio stations now have online streams that people anywhere in the world can listen to. That means that you can experience the sounds and culture of people in faraway lands. And if you happen to be faraway from your country, you can always tune in and hear the familiar voices from home anytime you want.

There are over 200 radio stations in Nigeria, and quite a few of them have online streaming capabilities as well as apps that make tuning in very simple. There are also apps that aggregate multiple radio stations so you can listen to Nigerian stations in one place. We’ve made a list of the ones that we think you should check out right away. Don’t forget that using these apps require internet access.
