As the world’s biggest search engine, Google is an incredibly essential tool for figuring out just exactly what people are interested in and curious about at any given point in time.
So, with us more than halfway into 2018, Google has just revealed some of the top searches by Nigerians so far, and it’s not particularly surprising that hits like Marvel’s Black Panther and Wizkid’s “Soco” made the cut.
The only song and movie on the list, we really didn’t need Google’s help to figure just how obsessed Nigerians have been with Wizkid’s fantastic ear-worm, “Soco” and Marvel’s record-shattering Black Panther.
“World Cup fixtures”, “How to dance shaku shaku”, “How to tie a gele” and “BBnaija” are just a few more unsurprising top searches that show Nigerians are still just as into football, weddings and reality TV as they’ve always been.
At the end of 2018, like they do every year, Google will release a more comprehensive list of the top searches by Nigerians, including the most searched people, songs and movies, as well as the most asked questions. Check out last year’s list right here.
