Last week, YouTube released its annual Rewind lists. These lists are separated by country and showcase the moments that captured the attention of YouTube users around the globe this year.
The Nigerian section of these list made for some interesting viewing by giving an insight into what Nigerians like to watch on YouTube.
The top 10 videos (excluding from major music labels) most viewed by Nigerians this year, include comedy skits by Mark Angel, coming in 3rd and 8th position; as well as political concerns with the return of President Buhari from his medical trip to the United Kingdom; and the Biafra protests coming in at 2nd and 4th position.
A look at the music videos most watched in Nigeria, shows how Nigerians have embraced indigenous music but not without a few foreign favourites.
Songs like Davido’s ‘If’ and ‘Fall’ and DJ Khaled’s ‘Wild Thoughts’ with Rihanna and ‘I’m the One’ took top spot. Nigerian favorites ‘Come closer’ by Wiz Kid featuring Drake, ‘Wo’ by Olamide, ‘Nobody Ugly’ by P-Square all made the list.
