Before we get started, let’s talk a bit on forum Definitions:
A Web Forum is a community or a discussion board where people interact.
It can be based on a particular interest (Gaming Forums); or a broad interest (Entertainment); that people tend to talk about.
It is also a place where problems are shared and solved or where top issues are discussed.
In Nigeria, forums are regarded as a great resource of interaction, an average Nigerian spends 3 hours on a forum daily.
That statistic alone tells how relevant Nigerian Forums are.
Each of the forums can be based on a single topic that users have flair for or can be broad with sorted threads and topics.
But understand,
Not all forums are there for your brand or website promotion, in fact promoting on the wrong forum will get you banned.
Most forums set guidelines and rules; they also set limits to user interaction.

They can share experience and maybe also assist themselves with regular advice to improve their blogging skills.
Basically, there is no much difference between these forums and normal forums themselves.
