Social media, has become a huge part of life in our society today. Stars use these platforms to entertain, inform and keep people guessing all at once. One of the biggest and most used social media platforms by celebs is Instagram. Even though, most stars on the continent are on Instagram. There are some who have added their own personal touches to their pages in order to stand out from the crowd. 

Wondering who these are? Well, we did a little deep dive for you so that you don’t have to wonder anymore.


Davido, is an artist that has carved out an international career for himself through consistency. This strategy has seen him succeed. It’s safe to say that, the ‘IF’ hit maker is following this strategy, to make his Instagram pop, and surprise! surprise! It seems to be working.

21.2million followers is no joke!

Davido, has been able to amass over 21 million followers on his page. He keeps his followers entertained by sharing pictures of his personal life, which includes pictures and videos of his three children (whom he adores so much) and notifying fans what he is up to. He recently posted images of old ‘Dami Duro’ CDs to celebrate his 10th anniversary. I don't know about you, but this got me so nostalgic.

The star also has a colorful page. He highlights his fashion sense through his posts, where he showcases a variety of colorful clothing options, that can't help but catch the eye. He is definitely a fashion icon, and I tend to think that, a few millions of his followers get some clothing tips from his Instagram page.

The artist, is also known to showcase his lavish lifestyle. Whether he is posting images of him flashing some cash, hopping on a private jet, brandishing an expensive watch or rubbing shoulders with international celebs, Davido bears it all on his social media platform, keeping his fans entertained and ever growing.

The Nigerian songstress, is not only killing it in her music career but also on her Instagram. Yemi Alade, has over 14 million followers on her page. Followers she keeps entertained, by showing them she is just like them.

The star, often posts funny videos and images on her stories and on her page. She utilizes emojis and is not afraid to have fun with her posts. Not taking herself too seriously on Instagram, helps the fans relate and also keeps them entertained.

Fans also tune in to keep up with her personal life, which features her relationship with her baby daddy and Tanzania star Diamond Platnumz, with whom they have kids together. Their relationship is full of ups and downs and fans keep it locked on her page, to get the latest updates. Last time we checked, they were happy and co-parenting is going well.

The latest caption on her relationship with Diamond read, “It takes only a brave to turn around and do the right thing. The smiles on @princess_tiffah & @princenillan are priceless. We appreciate you papa 🙏”.
