From Mohbad to Hilda Baci to Moyo Lawal, Here are the Top Google Searches in Nigeria for 2023

Google Search

On Monday, Google unveiled its “Year in Search,” showcasing the top searches, trends, and interests among Nigerians in 2023. The late Nigerian singer Mohbad topped the trending searches, followed by inquiries related to the Nigerian National Elections in February. People also sought information about chef Hilda Baci and Nollywood actor Mr. Ibu.

In the realm of entertainment, Jade Osiberu’s crime thriller “Gangs of Lagos” led the Google search movie trends, followed by “Jagun Jagun,” “Extraction 2,” “Oppenheimer,” and “Barbie.”

Asake’s “Lonely at the Top,” featuring a remix with American R&B singer H.E.R., claimed the top spot on Google’s most searched song list. The recipe for “Sex on the Beach” topped the recipe searches, and the iPhone 15 was the most searched mobile device.

Nigerians were curious about various topics, including the presidential election winner, Mohbad’s wife, fuel subsidies, and the meaning of “Idan,” a top slang of the year.

Globally, the conflict between Israel and Hamas dominated search trends. “Barbie” was the most searched movie, and “The Last of Us” took the lead as the most searched TV show.
