Just like US-residents can make money on medium.com by creating great content, Nigerians and other five other African countries can now write and make money from Opera News Hub, a platform owned by Opera Inc.
Before I delve fully into this, do you know that you can make as much as N300, 000 writing on Opera News Hub? In this post, I’ll also share with on how to receive your Opera News Hub earning in Opay account and how to withdraw it to your bank account.
I’ll also show you how to withdraw your Opera News Hub earning to your desired bank account i.e from Opay to bank account.
With over 160 million active users monthly in Africa on the Opera News App, you’re definitely on the right place to make some money.
Yeah, you read that correctly! Write, share and earn. It’s similar to a writing programme on medium.com where hundreds of people around the world make money writing and sharing useful contents. Unfortunately, the medium.com write and make money isn’t available for Nigerians.
We’ll tell all you need to know about on how to make money with Opera News Nigeria through writing.
But don’t you worry, Opera News has brought that opportunity to its millions of users in Nigeria with its new product called Opera News Hub. It’s a meeting place for great writers.
We’ll focus on how you can make as much as N200K as an unsigned writer
See the details according to the update on the official platform of Opera News Hub (ONH) below:
10, 000 views= N360
Number of articles per day: 5
If you continue to write five articles per day and you have each of your article doing at least 50K views, that’s something huge at the end of the month.
See how this is possible below (Data below isn’t real):
Day 1: 5 articles received 100, 000 views
Note: Views on your articles is calculated based on the performance of each article).
100, 000 divided by 10, 000= 10
NOTE: We’ve heard about the situation whereby a single post generated N300, 000 views!
You could make as much as N200, 000 per month with the latest Opera News Hub
To us at InfomediaNG, that may not hugely affect your current job. You could as well be coming up with two thought-provoking articles per week. You can check How to calculate your Opera News Earning

Testimonies About Opera News Hub (Nigeria)
In this section, we’ll share with you some of the good news from those who have benefited from the writing programme.
How I made over N70, 000 on Opera News Hub in less than 30 days
Brian Tracy said something significant about appreciation and it’s instructive to say that his quote is a true reflection of how I feel on January 17, 2020 when my Opay account was credited with N78, 462 being the payment for the articles I wrote and published on the new Opera’s new product Opera News Hub.
Don’t forget that a guy actually earned over N600K within the same period!
To many people, that might be a small amount, but to someone like me who is presently a full housewife, that amount means something. You know what I’m talking about when it comes to bills.
This post isn’t to brag about the amount but to say something about Tracy quotes who said, “Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.”
Well, I’ll share some insights into how I heard about it and how I started, having published a number of articles on Facebook groups and page without any financial compensation of any sort. I love writing and there is no regret about that.
But I feel excited to have a platform like medium.com that is ready to compensate me for sharing my views on issues.
So you didn’t know that medium.com pays for sharing your views on issues?
Yes medium.com actually does pay writers on the contents shared on the platform. But it’s not available for Nigerians.
But Opera Inc brought this to Nigerians to make some money on their ideas and views about issues.
How I earned over N78K within a month
Under this review, lemme share with you the number of article I published and how they fair.
- Kick off date: December 5, 2019
- Number of article published: 52
- Number of rejected articles: 5
- Number of published articles: 47
47 articles earned me over N78K within 30 days.
Small, right? Exploitative as some people described it considering how much clicks I got from the article, right?
But…What of it Opera goes the way of Facebook and gives you a platform to only share your opinion without any compensation and even ban you?
For this, I say…
A big thank you to Opera News Hub for the wonderful idea which some struggling Nigerians are using as a supporting way of surviving in a country where most of the politicians are only concerned about their immediate family while they siphone billions of naira that could be beneficial to millions of needy and millions of jobless Nigerians to foreign accounts.
There is no other way than to go the way of Melody Beattie who says, “Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.”
Thank you Opera News Hub.
