Nigeria’s first online community for students by students, Yada, Hebrew for learning and sharing has appointed Nelson Sombodi as its ambassador in a move that will see it become the preferred platform for students in Nigeria. Yada covers news and events relevant to Nigerian youth and students within and outside their campuses and allows students to sign and post pictures and articles and take part in forums online. Sombodi is an events manager, editor, publicist and a successful entrepreneur. The co-founder of E-101 Magazine, a youth entertainment and lifestyle magazine said he was honoured on the appointment.

‘I fell in love with the name, the brand, and concept of creating an interactive platform that is controlled and managed by the users, who are students from Nigerian campuses. Even though an enormous task and responsibilities are before me, I felt honoured as the first Yada Ambassador from the South,’ he said in a statement. His appointment as brand ambassador for Yada.ng was made official August 1, 2013.
Yada.com.ng is run by Ringier Media Nigeria, a part of the 1833 founded Ringier International, a Swiss multinational integrated media company.
