Editor’s note: This post was written by Asoto Adeola, an interactive art director, specializing in the fields of Brand Strategy, Brand Identity & Digital Branding. It was originally published on his blog on June 02, 2011.

During a briefing session, a client brought an observation to my notice and raised a question why celebrities/artistes tend to have more fans/followers on social media, so I decided to probe into this to find out whether or not their fan base is a reality of followers or fans, I think I would leave you to judge.

For this post, I wont deliberate on the best fanpage with respect to digital strategy the page administrators are deploying but rather numbers of fans as that would be a later post.

A look at these celebrity pages shows that a reality of our choice of music and how influential they really are in the lives of Nigerians. Although some of these pages rarely interact/engage with their fans, they still raking in likes, well I guess that’s the reason they are popular.

Here are the Top 10 Nigerian Artists/Celebrity On Facebook:

10. Da Grin – 204k + fans

9. D’Banj – 219k + fans

8. Wande Coal – 240k + fans

7. Banky W – 242k + fans

6. Darey – 253k + fans

5.  2 Face Innocent Idibia – 276k + fans

4. M.I. – 331k + fans

3. Don Jazzy – 359k + fans

2. Stephanie Okereke – 384k + fans

1.  Omotola – 570k + fans

One may derive the conclusion that, this list of celebrities are the top Nigerians on facebook except for public figures or politicians (GEJ with 567,826 fans) that might probably have more fans.

NOTE: If I have missed on any celebrity page that should be in the list, please do leave a comment as I have made every effort to ensure that statistics/information is correct as of time of posting (2nd of June, 2011).

Are you a fan of these celebrities?
