Ever wondered who the most followed celebrities in Nigeria on social media are? One would never imagine the rate at which Nigerian celebrities draw traffic to their bosom. It is good to be somebody that is known by some bodies (chuckles). If not, you are on a long thing. Hmm! No jokes at all, while many others are stretching to get followers on their social media page, some others are having them in a twinkle of an eye. Hmm!
