YNaija.com has released the list of the most influential people in media.

The 2021 YNaija #Media100 list cuts across all spheres of media, highlighting individuals and platforms who have driven the country’s media space in the past year.

BellaNaija‘s founder/CEO Uche Pedro was named in the category of Media-preneurs, alongside Mo Abudu of EbonyLife, Tiwalola Olanubi Jnr, also known as TJ Dotts of the Dotts Media House, Yasmin Bello-Osagie co-founder of She Leads Africa, Ugochukwu Obi-Chukwu of Nairametrics, Teni Zaccheaus JR of The Native Mag, and Seyi Taylor the founder and CEO of Big Cabal, the company behind media platforms such as Ebolafacts.com Techcabal, Africa’s response to TechCrunch and most notably Zikoko.

Here’s what the YNaija wrote about Uche:

Uche Pedro

She is the brains behind the popular online media platform; BellaNaija. With the vision of properly glamorizing the Nigerian media space, Uche Pedro created the BellaNaija brand, a digital media platform which brings to its audience, the glitz and glamour of Nigerian socialites and major events in the country. Very few if any at all do this as well as BellaNaija does, as the platform has become somewhere aspiring young leaders aim to feature in. Last year she was mentioned as one of the 50 Most Powerful Women in Africa by Forbes. She was one of the honorees of this year’s Royal African Awards.

Thank you for all your love and support throughout the years, BellaNaijarians.
