Top Tech YouTubers in Nigeria [The FACTS]

Top Tech YouTubers in Nigeria

Nigeria is the biggest country for YouTube in Africa, and it’s also the biggest country for tech gadgets on the continent. So, it’s normal to see many Nigerians venturing into the tech space, discussing the latest gadgets, both made in Nigeria and abroad, on their YouTube channels. Some of these tech YouTubers have become quite popular, even reaching celebrity status in their own right. They often receive various data phones from tech companies for review. Additionally, some of them have expanded into finance to diversify their revenue streams.

Today, I want to discuss the top tech YouTubers in Nigeria. I’ve carefully compiled this list to ensure that these individuals are authentic Nigerians. I’ve also verified all their data to provide you with the most accurate information on the top tech YouTubers.

You may be familiar with some of them, but there are a few that you might not know. So, let’s dive in.

1. Fisayo Fosudo

Fisayo is a tech YouTuber that nearly anyone would recognize because he’s been around for quite a while. He started his YouTube channel in 2012, and starting early is crucial in this field. Fisayo covers the latest phones and gadgets and offers his own opinions.

Like most tech YouTubers, there isn’t a lot of criticism of the content or products they review, especially in Nigeria, where they depend on these companies for product access. Fisayo is the best tech YouTuber in Nigeria, with over 570,000 subscribers and more than 85 million views. With these numbers, Fisayo should have earned at least $85,000 from YouTube since he started in 2012. He has approximately 385 videos on his channel and is definitely at the top.

2. Eric Okafor

Eric is someone I personally admire, and he has added a different dimension to the YouTube tech scene. He has produced more videos than Fisayo, with over 400 videos on his channel since he started in 2014. In terms of viewership, Eric is outperforming Fisayo, but it remains to be seen if he’s made more money.

Eric’s videos have accumulated nearly 150 million views, which means that, based on Nigeria’s RPM, he should have earned at least $150,000 from his YouTube channel. Eric also has affiliate connections with various brands, who provide him with gadgets to explore and showcase to his viewers. Eric Okafor’s YouTube channel has 360,000 subscribers.

3. MubarakeeyTV

I know this might be surprising to those who think Nigeria is all about the English language, but Mubarak has carved out a niche for himself in the Hausa tech market. Remarkably, Mubarak has almost 190,000 subscribers on his channel. This has brought him around 4.5 million views, which means Mubarak should have earned around $4,500 from his YouTube channel.

But Mubarak is more than just this; he’s a sort of celebrity in the North. It’s essential to note that the Hausa language is not limited to Nigeria; it’s also spoken in other African countries, such as parts of Cameroon. In fact, Hausa is one of the most widely spoken languages. This is where Mubarak has excelled. He has managed to attract a Hausa-speaking audience and used it to promote his channel, which now has over 470 videos.

Mubarak started his YouTube channel in 2014, and I truly appreciate his approach. It takes a bold individual to run a tech YouTube channel in a non-English language, especially in Nigeria. Kudos to him; he’s probably the best on this list for me.

4. Fred’s Tech Hub

Fred is also into reviewing tech, like most other tech YouTubers mentioned. He’s doing well with 93,000 subscribers and has amassed 16 million views. This means he should have earned around $16,000 from revenue based on Nigeria’s RPM. Fred began his YouTube channel in 2017 and has over 200 videos.

Fred does a great job and goes the extra mile to personalize his reviews, making it easier for viewers to connect with what he’s saying.

5. Tech Overwatch

Tech Overwatch is someone I had to include on this list, with 37,000 subscribers. They’ve been in the game for quite a while, starting in 2014. They have over 200 videos and have gathered at least 6.8 million views on YouTube, which means they’ve earned a significant amount from this channel.

Tech Overwatch has been in the game for a long time. They use a Nigerian accent, talk like Nigerians, and embrace all things Nigerian, making them a global Nigerian tech YouTube channel that aims to resonate with Nigerians. Tech Overwatch is certainly one to watch if you’re looking for the latest gadgets available in Nigeria.

Conclusion

I hope this list has been informative, and I’ve conducted extensive research to ensure that I bring you the very best regarding the top tech YouTubers in Nigeria. They’re doing exceptionally well, and I guarantee these individuals have the highest numbers.  If you have any questions or comments, feel free to share them in the comments section of this blog.
