Taiwo Kola-Ogunlade, Google’s Communications and Public Affairs Manager, Anglophone West Africa Wednesday announced the “Most Searched Topics” in Nigeria.

The list is a rather interesting a reflection of Nigerians interest at certain times. In the list, music, politics, education and business are prominent.

Below are the topics mentioned in the list:

How To Check Jamb


The 2018 Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) examinations had a few successes from the onset. Despite the Registrar of the Board, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede’s expectations that over two million people will register, it recorded a little over 1.6 million registrations compared to the 1.7 million registrations in a month in 2017. The Registrar claimed that the reason for this decline is because JAMB had succeeded in placing measures to prevent multiple registrations and other unwholesome practices by candidates. Again, when the news that only 414,696 candidates had passed JAMB filtered the air, candidates, families and friends scrambled to Google to know the deciding factor of who will get into their chosen Nigerian university.

Who Is Leading In Osun Election?

The Osun state election is one of Nigeria’s most memorable elections in recent times. This is because Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) candidate Senator Demola Adeleke also known as the dancing senator was the major contender against APC’s (All Progressive Party) , Isiaka Oyetola for the number position of Osun State. Adeleke had to his advantage, one of Nigeria’s favourite musician, Davido. Davido hinging on his fanbase and popularity became actively involved in the elections.

To this end, the youths, election observers and non-partisan members of the society paid attention to the Osun election. Although there were claims that Adeleke had danced his way to victory, INEC declared it inconclusive and announced that a rerun will take place on the 27th of September. Adeleke lost.

How To Write A Business Plan

The need for a business plan cannot be overemphasised. However, the reason for seeking a business plan in Nigeria might as well be different. The rise in unemployment has given rise to the number of entrepreneurs. And in a society where everyone wants to be the major market shareholder, a business plan serves its purpose.

How To Dance Shaku Shaku

Shaku Shaku is the viral dance that took Nigeria by storm. Made popular by Mr Real of Legbegbe fame and Olamide the Badoo”, the street dance steps became the national dance anthem causing the likes of Wizkid, Tiwa Savage and Davido to post videos of themselves doing the Shaku Shaku. Just when people affiliated it to the streets, Genevieve Nnaji showed Nigerians how it is done in ‘Harvard’. Soon, Shaku Shaku became infilterated into religion as people were told to Shaku Shaku for Jesus. And if you are yet to learn the shaku shaku, well…

Not long after Nigeria’s former vice president Atiku Abubakar declared his intention to become Nigeria’s president that attacks and counterattacks of a visa ban started to trail him. But Atiku bothered himself on other matters. One of the most important being, who was going to be his running mate. Nigerians who refused to be carried away by this, began to suggest who they thought will be best. While some argued that a southern Christian will be suitable, others thought that the Eastern region deserved a shot. On the 13th of October, Mr Peter Obi, former governor of Anambra state was picked as his running mate. With Obi, Nigerians have become divided over whom to choose as their president.

Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović first caught the attention of the world after her bikini pictures surfaced. Many across the world were left shocked that Croatia was represented by a stunning leader. Not only was she the centre of attention because of her active support for the Croatian football team, but she also put her empathic side and emotions on display during tha games and hugged everyone.

Who Is The Richest Musician In Nigeria?

Nigerians are always drawn to finding out information about their idols Perhaps this year’s search may have been fuelled by claims of purchased private jets, 30 billion in the account, whopping sums for performing at lavish Indian weddings or for fans bragging rights sake, we may never find out.

How To Check BVN


When the Central Bank Of Nigeria (CBN) announced that it was launching a Bank Verification Number (BVN) in 2014 to improve on security and prevent illegal transactions, not many saw the need for it. There is a conspiracy theory that the BVN is an expansion of the Illuminati group to control the world and give people the 666.
It was not until CBN had announced that those who did not register for their BVN will lose their money did commercial banks witness an influx of customers. If we are going to question why it trended in 2018? Nigerians do not play with their bank accounts.

Who Is Prince Harry?

Until last year, Nigerians were a lot more familiar with the names Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, Princess Diana and Prince William. More so, people around the world knew his as the second son of Princess Diana. As he got older, controversies started to trail him and soon his popularity with the ladies grew. It, therefore, came as a surprise when Meghan Markle, a black American actress was going to be wedded to him. Needless to say that the wedding trended around the world?

How To Write A CV

According to the Quartz, about half of Nigerians cannot find jobs after tehhy graduate. 2018 experienced the twelfth rise in unemployment with the percentage as 18.8%. This means the 15.9 million remained unemployed and 18 million (21.2%) are underemployed. It is therefore imperative that the competition for the jobs available is a battle for the fittest and a professional CV is important.
