Olamide – Wo and Davido – Fia, Among Top Searches on Google 2017

Every end of year, we gather the stats of best google searches for the year. Just as we did last year when search terms like "What is mmm?” "What is in Nigeria newspapers today", "What is the meaning of love?" "What is budget padding?" and so on. This year 2017 top searches on Google in Nigeria cut across different categories from Olamide – Wo and Davido – Fia topping the Music Chart while terms like ASUU Strike, Monkeypox outbreak were among the most searched stories and event categories in Nigeria for the year.

In other categories, "Is Buhari dead?" recorded a massive volume of search queries in Nigeria. This is of course expected because of the ill health of the Nigerian president which resulted to his absence in the country for some months. Another top search was Nollywood actress (sadly) Moji Olaiya and Fast and Furious 8 topping the movies categories to Evans the kidnapper and much more highlights of top searches on Google by Nigerians in 2017.
