Google, the popular search engine, has put out a list spanning what Nigerians searched over the space of 15 years.


The development comes as the US company marks 15 years since the inception of Google Trends, its website that analyses the popularity of top search queries across various regions and languages.

In Nigeria, football — with clubs like “Man U”, “Real Madrid” and “Chelsea FC” — took the top spots in Google searches.

Nollywood actors like Mercy Johnson and Odunlade Adekola alongside musicians like Burna Boy were also ranked.


Some of the most searched keywords in Nigeria over this period also covered the likes of Cardi B and Kanye West.

Google processes over 40,000 search queries every second, translating to more than a billion searches per day and 1.2 trillion searches per year worldwide.

Over the past 15 years, Nigerians have relied on Search to get the answers they require.


Google also revealed that Nigerian citizens have also shown consistent interest in news and current affairs.

Below are lists unpacking the interests of Nigerians on Google search over the last 15 years.
