About Bet9ja. The most popular sportsbook in Nigeria.

Bet9ja is the foremost Nigerian gambling company offering bookmaking, online Casino and sports betting. The company’s website is the second most visited sites in Nigeria, ranking only behind google. Bet9ja Nigeria was founded on the 10th of September 2013 by Nigerian Billionaire Kunle Soname. With its headquarters in Lagos State Nigeria, Bet9ja is currently traded under KC Gaming Networks Limited and run by a group of shareholders of different nationalities. However, its founder Kunle Soname remains the Chairman of the company, and together with the current Bet9ja CEO Ayo Ojuroye, he works very hard to ensure that continues to reign supreme amongst betting websites in Nigeria and Africa.

Considering the fact that over a decade ago there was no indigenous betting site in Nigeria, it is safe to say that through Bet9ja Nigeria, the world of sports betting in Nigeria has been revolutionized. Coming at a time when the internet was still in its infancy in Nigeria, the company, which is now worth over 900 million USD, had to start with a few offline vendors. Today however, they have moved all their customers online. More details on the site
