Davido_opt

The music video ‘Áye’ by popular Nigeria artiste, Davido tops the list of the most watched video on video-sharing website, Youtube for the first quarter of 2014.

The video, directed by top Nigerian video director Clarence Peters, generated over 300, 000 views in the first week alone- proof that Nigerians still love music as much as ever. Also on the list are the videos of Tuface Idibia’s 2012 single ‘Rainbow’ and Flavour N’abania ‘Ikwokrikwo’ video, which featured 2013 Big Brother Africa winner, Dilish Matthews.

However, while music remains a big passion for many, Comedy skits are gradually finding their place into Nigerians’ playlists. For the first time since YouTube was officially launched in Nigeria, the top 10 most-viewed list has more comedy-skits than musical videos.

Topping the list of most watched comedy videos is the Deliverance skit featuring AY and Helen Paul. The video, which generated almost 300, 000 views in the first month, was published by AY’s AYTV. Other comedy videos that made it to the list include ‘Maga don Pay’ and ‘The Affair’ (both by Bovi) and the hilarious phone conversation between Uche the Etisalat Customer Care executive and the wife of a customer.

Globally, some of the biggest stars on YouTube are animals and pets. From hilarious videos of cats pretending to be dead, to those of dogs taking care of babies and elephants overturning cars, YouTubers around the world cannot have enough of the wonders of the animal kingdom. Nigerians seem to be catching this bug. An incredible video of a snake devouring a crocodile after a 5 hour battle generated over 24 Million views in its first 30 days with significant views from Nigeria included!

The list wouldn’t have been complete without the occasional national interest-type videos that many seem to love. The Boko Haram Confession & Deliverance shared by Synagogue of All Nation’s Emmanuel TV is one of these. The over 200 comments shows how much interest this video is generating.

Take a look at the top 10 lists for the first quarter of 2014 (January – March) below:
