To commemorate the occasion, it released an interesting list of what Nigerians have searched for the most over the past decade and a half.
In Nigeria, football clubs like “Man U”, “Real Madrid” and “Chelsea FC” have taken the top spots in Google Searches in the past 15 years.
Nigerians are also entertainment enthusiasts who love their celebrity personalities.

Google processes more than 40,000 search queries every second. This translates to more than a billion searches per day and 1.2 trillion searches per year worldwide. Google Search trends information is gleaned from data based on what Nigerians have been searching for.
Google said: ‘‘Over the past 15 years, Nigerians have relied on Search to get the answers they require. They have also shown consistent interest in news and current affairs.
