Yakata Launches To Take On OLX And Jiji


When talking about online classified advert sites in Nigeria, the platforms that readily come to mind are OLX and Jiji. You can add Mobofree in between.

This said,  there is now a new startup set to disrupt the business of online classified advert in Nigeria and it is named Yakata.

Yakata like the aforementioned is an online classified platform. The aim of the startup which was founded by Jesse Yusufu. is to empower every person in Nigeria to independently connect with buyers and sellers online.

Some of the services available on Yakata includes health/beauty, animals and pet, fashion, mobile phones, and tablets, Electronics and video, automobiles, home furniture and garden, real estate, services, job search and sports.

In addition, if you have a business you want to promote or advertise, you can do so for free on Yakata.

Despite the fact that the online classified advert space is dominated by the aforementioned players, Yakata still has a huge opportunity if it can assure users that what they are buying on the platform is genuine even though the control of these is not in their hands. This is why it is important for them to put measures in place to prevent such theft. This is one of the major problems the players have to battle with. Beyond this, Yakata is good to go!
