The Nigerian Youtube space has grown big in recent years. The likes of Davido and Yemi Alade, who are hitting 100 million streams and popular YouTuber, Sisi Yemmie, who has hit the 200,000 subscriber mark, and also popular YouTubers like KnewKeed, Delphinator, and Fisayo Fosudo, among others, have done their fair share of inspiring young and old people to create videos on the platform.
As Nigerians, Africans, and even international audiences keep demanding to consume our content, the number of Nigerian YouTubers rises. And if you don’t know which growing channels to subscribe to (depending on your preferences), here are 7 fast-growing Nigerian YouTube channels that you should consider.
Lilian Okibe started out as a lady who just wanted to show her natural hair journey to her friends and is now one of the top hair influencers on both Instagram and YouTube. Brands (both African and International) usually reach out to her to review their products and she does it amazingly well. She also does how-to videos were she puts ladies (and men growing their hair) through different ways to style their hair with little-to-no hair loss and shrinkage.
