We earlier wrote on the most followed Nigerian accounts on Instagram, Here are the top 10 Most Followed Twitter accounts in Nigeria 2019, of whom madness is bound to ensure from their engagement.
Most Followed Twitter Accounts in Nigeria
Davido – 5.5 million
The 30 billion man. The man who understands what the horde on Twitter loves and feeds them. Davido exists in the plane of Twitter users who can turn the site upside down with one tweet. Using his account to promote his music and engage with his fans in between deploying subtle jabs at his rivals, the man certainly takes advantage of the Twitter space in maximizing his exposure.
Wizkid – 5 million
Wizkid, Nigeria’s leading music artiste regularly cuts a controversial figure on Twitter. A man with a rabid fanbase who will go to battle for their Starboy, he commands enough followers to turn the tide on decorum on the social network. His engagement levels with his fans still need but he sure has what it takes to command the attention of one of the world’s craziest digital space.
Don Jazzy – 3.7 million
Veteran producer and Twitter user, Don Jazzy was one of the first set of celebrities to take advantage of the social network. He has reduced his prolific Twitter usage just like his active engagement in the music industry but as one of the foremost philanthropist on Twitter, he still holds a lot of place in the heart of Twitter users.
Tiwa Savage – 3.2 million
Mama Jamjam popularity as one of Nigeria’s leading female artistes ensures that she pulls in a lot of followers on social media sites. At 3.2 million, she has a lot more followers than some countries. Do Followers translate to fans? Well her recent hits suggests they mostly do.
Dbanj – 2.9 million
The Entertainer. Dbanj is one of the most popular artists to come out of this side of the world. His music is not as popular has it used to be but his legacy is strong enough to earn him a spot on this list. Loved by most and hated by a few who feel betrayed by the Mohits breakup…the man, either way, holds a strong place in the heart of Nigerians as evident by the reaction to a possible Mohits reunion concert.
Olamide – 2.6 million
The streets love him. So does Twitter users. The man of the people, Baddo enjoys a fandom that gives him leverage in the digital community. A man who proudly identifies with his roots and hasn’t gone posh despite his considerable wealth and the people love him for it. He, however, can increase his numbers by increasing his engagement with other users on regular issues.
2Face Idibia – 2.5 million
Legends don’t die. They, however, might not have a lot of social media followers to reflect their popularity among the people. Probably one of the most loved musicians in the country, 2face has the ability to attract a lot of attention as shown recently by the protest plans against the present administration. His conscious nature about the state of the country and non-reluctance to talk about them means he finds attention from both the music and political scene. It helps that he has a lot of talent to back his influence on the Twittersphere.
Peter Psquare – 2.1 million
Peter Okoye, the second half of the defunct duo Psquare should be higher up this list as a veteran member of the Nigerian music scene but after many tiring fights between him and his brother, unimpressive solo music and a lack of impact in any other social industry, he is confined to a lowly 2.1 million. He still, however, peddles enough followers to throw a large wrench into the smooth wheel of crazy of the Twittersphere when he desires.
Ice Prince – 2.1 million
Perhaps there are those who aren’t bothered by the fact he fell off the music scene and hasn’t really had a hit track in years but the surprise on this list is Ice Prince who is largely anonymous when it comes to the Nigerian music industry today. Perhaps even more surprising is that he has more followers than his label boss, M.I who is considerably more active on the social network.
Genevieve Nnaji – 1.9 million
As seen from the Instagram top 10, actors and actresses don’t usually make this list in Nigeria but one of the godmothers of the Nigerian movie industry begs to differ. I suppose if anyone were to break into a club of music artists, it would be the woman who mostly minds her business and continues to slay unapologetically.
There you go; the most followed Twitter accounts in Nigeria right now. If you are looking at populating your Twitter page with some of the most influential accounts on the network, this is not the worst place to start. One day, one of these guys will tweet something and the Twittersphere will go crazy.
