Thanks to the online social video giant, YouTube, people around the world, including Nigeria, can now express themselves in exciting ways. However, with the increasing number of videos online, it is hard for viewers to know which ones are interesting enough to subscribe to.
While some of these vlogs end up becoming a waste of time a few minutes into them, there are some that have created a buzz, captured viewers’ hearts and become very trendy. Jovago.com, Africa’s No. 1 online hotel booking site looks at the top 4 Vlogs that are trending in the Nigerian social media space at present.
Adventures of Kemi Adetiba
Already famed for her exploits in the Nigerian music industry, Kemi Adetiba is expanding her marque with a Video blog hosted on YouTube Channel with the title ‘The Adventures of Kemi Adetiba’.
Although not officially trained as a chef, the celebrity who has a passion for food and cooking – as seen on her Instagram page – stated that one the main features of her vlog would be cooking tutorials. To keep things even more interesting, there will also be videos uploads on product reviews, beauty, travel and a surprise game show as time goes on.
Barely a month old, “Akah Bants” is a new video blog already featured on BellaNaija and BBC as one of the Nigerian video blog to watch out for. Started by Nollywood actor Nnani Akah who is popular for his role in NdaniTV’s One Chance and also serves as a TV host at TVC’s Entertainment Splash, the video blog is aimed at the Nigerian youth towards effecting a positive change in the society via current affairs and Nigerian politics exposés. Not entirely a ‘serious’ vlog, it also features funny skits by the actor.
Toke Moments is not a new video blog like the first two, however, it made this list as it remains extremely popular – especially with the new sexology episodes- and has possibly the largest community of followers in the country. Run by popular media personality, Toke Makinwa, also known as one of Nigeria’s greatest fashionistas is focused on discussing issues related to love,sex, marriage and relationships. This is certainly a blog you want to subscribe to as it is always trending.
Adanna and David
Adanna and David became Youtube sensations after they released the cute footage of themselves dancing to a Nigerian song which went viral on Instagram. Although they have kept their vblog running since that clip, they recently created a buzz as the duo made an announcement via the social media where they disclosed they are expecting their first child due in January 2016. The announcement which was made with an “awwh-worthy” photo and a caption which read: “David and I are so excited to finally announce that we’re expecting a baby!!” is a certain reason why this vlog is generating buzz…again.
