Not bad for Ten years. Not bad at all.

Even after a brief down time, following a successful hacking attempt which saw Nairaland offline briefly on the 22 June 2014; the site came back online three days after and it was business as usual.

Congratulations to Seun Osewa and the Nairaland Team for creating the quintessential online forum for Nigerians.

HAPPY TENTH BIRTHDAY, NAIRALAND!
