Africa’s Male Barbie aka Bobrisky, was top on Google search for the week ending yesterday, an official has said. Taiwo Kola-Ogunlade, Google’s Communications and Public Affairs Manager, Anglophone West Africa, disclosed that the search was from 26 October to 2 November.
He said; “Top trending searches on Google this week went from a fashionable man with a different dress sense to a search for a chemistry, which is neither a subject nor love bond.
“Bobrisky, ‘Africa’s Male Barbie’ became a search interest this week after a presidential aide pulled off from a new media conference, because he could not share the stage with the social media sensation.
“Bobrisky had earlier dominated Google search some months back, for cross-dressing, use of makeup and stories of highlife with a secret ‘bae’.”
He said that multi-talented musician, Falz the Bad Guy and beautiful songstress Simi, recently released an Extended Play (EP) titled “Chemistry” to also be of search interest.
“The duo has been a search item on Google in the past not just for their past collaborations, but for some perceived lovey-dovey chemistry that they continue to claim does not exist.”
The Google manager said that in the entertainment industry, Iyanya, the Kukere crooner, had jumped ship.
The ‘Kukere’ crooner, Iyanya, recently made a stealthy move when he dumped his label, MMMG, where he was artist and partner to join Don Jazzy’s Mavin Record, where the popular entertainer and superstar will be joining other musicians like Tiwa Savage, D’Prince, Korede Bello, Dr Sid and Dija on the label.
Either to learn about the history of Halloween or to just enjoy a feel of how people are celebrating the day in other parts of the world, many Nigerians took to Google, to search for gossips, pictures and video on the day, which was originally meant for the celebration of departed faithful.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Google Trends was launched in May, 2006, to allow one to see how popular, search terms and its demography have been over time on Google.
