Google’s Annual Year in Search looks back at the events and hottest trends that kept fingers tapping throughout the year, in search of the latest news. So what caught the collective eye of Nigerians in 2015? The 15th Annual Year in Search has all the answers, based on the top searches conducted in the country.
Local personalities, surprising events and unexpected trends in politics, business and entertainment had Nigerians trawling Google in search of answers. The postponed 2015 General ‘Elections’ for example, made the list of most searched events of the year, right behind the top ranking ‘Xenophobia Attacks’ in South Africa, which startled the world in April. Third on the list of Top 10 occurrences in Nigeria is the report on the arrest of pro-Biafra activist and Director of Radio Biafra, ‘Nnamdi Kanu’. The much anticipated, controversial Fight of the Century between ‘Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather’ isn’t left out of the list, although apparently outshone in the minds of Football-loving Nigerians by the ‘Under-17 World Cup’, which lies 4th on the list.
