Uche Pedro is a Nigerian blogger, writer, social media expert and entrepreneur. She is the founder of BellaNaija.com, an online entertainment, fashion and lifestyle magazine and has gone on to motivate many bloggers including the richest blogger in Nigeria, Linda Ikeji.
Uche Pedro started blogging as an hobby in 2006. She wanted to keep herself busy after she graduated from school and waiting to resume her post-graduation job with Shell. One thing I like about her style of blogging is consistency, organization and professionalism. Something many bloggers fail to achieve.
