Written by MAX FM on April 19, 2021
Davido is huge on Instagram; he has more Instagram followers than the likes of Usher and Da Baby; then on this list, there is Wizkid, Tiwa Savage, etc.
Instagram has become the most-used social media app by Nigerian celebrities. With Davido top this list.
1. Davido (19.9M)
For the fourth year in a roll, Nigerian music star Davido has remained the most followed Nigerian celebrity in the country.
2. Yemi Alade (13.7M)
The second most followed Nigerian celebrity on Instagram is the beautiful music star, Yemi Alade. The singer moved one step from her position in 2020.
3. Funke Akindele Bello (13M)
Unarguably one of the most talented actors to have come from Nigeria, Funke Akindele Bello crosses the Ts and dots the Is when defining a star.
The movie star moved one step up from her position on this list from last year. Akindele’s continuous rise on Instagram can be connected to her die-hard fans who have remained loyal to her craft.
4. Tiwa Savage (12.3M)
With almost 13 million followers and still counting, Tiwa Savage is the fourth most followed Nigerian celebrity on Instagram. Sadly, she dropped two positions this year.
5. Wizkid (12.1M)
Ordinarily, with all his achievements and popularity, Wizkid should be at the top of this list but we all know social media doesn’t work that way.
He has remained in the same spot for the last four years but has grown his fan base by 2 million in just a year. If you are a die-hard fan of Wizkid, then you’ll know he is not big on sharing private or even career details on his social media accounts.
That hasn’t stopped the Wizkid FC from showing him all the love and support on social media.
6. Ini Edo (11.2M)
Ini Edo is the sixth most followed celebrity in Nigeria and this doesn’t surprise many for obvious reasons.
Unlike a lot of movie stars who use their social media platforms to share with fans all their projects, Ini Edo has been able to capture hers with a different approach.
7. Peter Okoye (10.8M)
There are rich celebrities and there is Peter Okoye who can be used as the yardstick for measuring success and wealth in the entertainment industry.
Everything about the 39-year-old singer oozes class and affluence. From his cars to his mansion and wardrobe, you’d probably run out of data trying to find your way around his Instagram page.
8. Don Jazzy (10.8M)
Don Jazzy needs no introduction as he is one of the most successful music moguls in Nigeria.
Jazzy in recent years has however transitioned from that hardlining label head of his Mo’hit Records days to this affable character which is evident from his Instagram post.
9. AY Makun (10.5M)
One of the biggest names in the comedy business in Nigeria for the past two decades is Ayo Makun. His versatility and business acumen have made him not only popular but very successful.
10. Mercy Johnson Okojie (10M)
The Nollywood actress Mercy Johnson Okojie is the 10th most followed celebrity in the country. Her steady growth on Instagram can be attributed to her cult-like fans.
One interesting and very unique feat about this actress is the speed at which her 10 million followers are quick to click on anything she shares on the social media platform.
