Tech giant and world number one search engine Google celebrated its 20th anniversary a few days ago.
As part of its celebration, Google Nigeria rolled out a list of famous Nigerians whose names dominated Google search in the past decade. Among those who made the list are Nigerian music superstars Wizkid, Olamide Davido and Phyno.
According to the Country Manager for Nigeria Juliet Ehimuan-Chiazor, “search is a very different product from what it was in 1998. Far from simply being a way to find information, it has become a crucial social and economic tool. This is especially true in Africa, where it has proven invaluable in helping people find jobs, start businesses, and even save money” she said.
