The 10 Most Searched Nigerian Actors In 2019 | Google Trends


A s 2019 came to an end, Google revealed the top searches of 2019 in Nigeria including a list of the most searched for Nigerian actors. The announcement of the results of Google’s 2019 Year in Search offers an interesting view on the most talked about moments of the year and the biggest trends based on searches made in Nigeria.

As one would expect, there were some rather interesting discoveries. 2019’s top trending news search was ‘ASUU Strike,’ which took the highest place over other trending news topics like ‘AFCON 2019,’ ‘Naira Marley’ and ‘Women’s World Cup 2019.’ Seeing as no major ASUU strike took place in 2019, the high search for the subject is quite telling.

Naira Marley, who is fast becoming a pop culture icon in Nigeria topped Atiku Abubakar (Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party at the 2019 Nigerian general election), and Brazillian professional footballer, Neymar, as the most-google-searched person in Nigeria. However, Neymar made the lists as the top trending sports person searched by Nigerians in 2019.

The Nigerian movie industry, better known as Nollywood, is famous for being the second-largest in the world, at least, by the high volume of content put out year in year out. Surprisingly, the most searched actor in Nigeria in 2019 was neither Genevieve Nnaji; the actor whose movie ‘Lionheart’ was nominated for an Oscar before being controversially disqualified nor Sola Sobowale who appeared in the biggest and one of the most talked-about movies this year; King of Boys. So who was it?

Here are Google’s top 10 most searched Nigerian actors in 2019…

Regina Daniels was Google’s most searched Nigerian actor in 2019, ranking over other veteran actors like Genevieve Nnaji and Tonto Dikeh. Although she is one of the most successful upcoming actors in the movie industry, she became widely known when she married billionaire business magnate Ned Nwoko.

After her marriage, every movement or picture she posted caused a stir on social media and obviously Google also experienced the Regina Daniels effect.
