Lagosmatchmaker has enhanced social life – Nkpubre Arit Edet


Lagosmatchmaker in-house coach Nkpubre Arit Edet says the platform has enhanced social life in the post-Covid era

United States of America-certified dating coach and in-house coach of Lagosmatchmaker, Nkpubre Arit Edet, believes that Lagosmatchmaker has enhanced the social life of Nigerians in the post Covid-19 era.


Reacting to a question on whether the social life that Lagos residents used to enjoy has been eroded for good no thanks to the onslaught of the coronavirus pandemic that forced countries around the world to embark on lockdowns, Edet said that the availability of social and dating platforms like Lagosmatchmaker prevented that.

According to Edet, “the idea that every social place is closed due to the pandemic can make you feel like social life is over. And if you are single, you may feel much more isolated, with very slim chances of meeting anyone or growing your network. Luckily, with social and dating platforms such as Lagosmatchmaker, which is a privacy-focused platform for singles that are 25-years-old and above, there is a way to feel connected and in control of your social life, while maintaining social distancing.”

Lagosmatchmaker helps singles to meet other singles with the help of the team and the support of the in-house dating coach Edet, the first US-certified dating coach to operate in Nigeria. Edet has been matchmaking for over eight years and got her certification in 2015.


Speaking further, she said that Lagosmatchmaker was created as a need for privacy in this dating age.

Edet is well equipped for the leading role in Lagosmatchmaker having bagged her first degree in Economics from Washington, DC-based Howard University and her masters in international strategy from the Scotland-based University of St-Andrews. She is also in the process of obtaining her PhD from the University of Plymouth on external debt management.

She also works as a statistician for the National Bureau of Statistics and had previously worked as a strategist for NEXIM Bank, as well as a data analyst with the Debt Management Office.

Edet is also an author and her books – ‘Examining July 2004 Banking Sector Reform’ and ‘Roller Coaster: The External Debt Journey So Far Nigeria’ – can be purchased on Barnes and Noble, Amazon and other online book stores.

The in-house coach of Lagosmatchmaker is also a member of ICAN and PDMI. Being an Economist has made her focused on being a part of economic growth through the gross domestic happiness which is a measurement indicator for economic performance used by countries such as France, Bhutan and the UK as it is expected that happy people are more productive and efficient
