Meet KingsChat, Christ Embassy's Chatting App That Now has 2 Million Users!

There’s an interesting Nigerian social media app growing quietly on app stores.

Meet KingsChat the app.

KingsChat is an all in one social media platform modeled like Facebook and available on multiple platforms. Shocker, the app is owned by Christ Embassy, one of Nigeria’s largest churches. Surprised? Don’t be.

Apparently, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, founder of Christ Embassy, is reportedly a keen follower of tech. According to a church blog, Pastor Chris aims to use technology to keep the “Evangelical church fresh, young, new” and savvy to the millennial generation.

And what better way to do that than a chat application that works like Facebook!

With the KingsChat app, users can chat, post Whatsapp-like statuses, follow trending topics and stay locally connected to friends. The app also allows users join communities around topics that interest them.

I used the app briefly and admired how easy it was. Everything about it felt quite familiar (probably because it feels like Facebook) and understandable. Plus, the entire workflow was quite fluid.

And unlike previous social media experiments in Nigeria, the app doesn’t make use of coins for certain in-app activities.

A Status update on KingsChat

Christ Embassy launched KingsChat about four years ago. But in less than two years, the app received over 100,000 downloads on Google Play Store alone!

It is now one of the biggest Nigerian apps on both Google Play Store and Apple iTunes Store!

KingsChat has gotten over 500,000 installs on Android, Google stats show. According to Adegoke Olubusi, co-founder of Helium Health and also a co-founder of KingsChat, over 2 million users have signed up on the platform so far. He also claims the app grew 100% over the last 12 months.

That’s really a huge feat!

But it’s super awkward that the app has been on a lowkey and is rarely talked about. Apparently, many people have no idea the app exists and even tech blogs never talked about it. Yet it’s going strong, and that growth doesn’t seem like it’ll abate anytime soon as Christian users have truly found a place they can call their own.
