Instagram is an exciting social media platform. It may not be bigger than Facebook but it is more exciting because it lets users into the lives of their favourite celebrities and personalities. Ghana has a massive dominance when it comes to social media in general. We do love attention. Fact is, marketing and a good brand is everything when you are a celebrity. Your brand can help raise your value and Instagram is one sure way to manage your brand. Everthinggh.com has gathered the list of Ghanaians with most followers on the social app Instagram. As expected the list is dominated by high profile celebrities. But it takes more than being famous to win in the IG game. It is astonishing to find some personalities lagging on the list. The likes of Shatta Wale, Kwadwo Nkansah Lilwin, Asamoa Gyan, Sully Muntari and Nadia Buari all couldn’t make the list. They were beaten by Sarkodie, John Dumelo, Michael Essien, Yvonne Nelson and Jackie Appiah who are in similar fields. Thus, it takes better branding, marketing and international appeal to be on the list. It is also equally surprising to realise that certain socialites whose lives revolve around these platforms where nowhere to be found. Hajia4real and her arch rival Maima (yesimbeautiful) are good examples.
Here is the full list;
BECCA – 1M FOLLOWERS
MICHAEL ESSIEN – 1M FOLLOWERS
MAJID MICHEL – 1.1M FOLLOWERS
YVONNE OKORO – 1.3M FOLLOWERS
SARKODIE – 1.4M FOLLOWERS
KELVIN PRINCE BOATENG – 1.5M FOLLOWERS
JULIET IBRAHIM – 1.6M FOLLOWERS
JOHN DUMELO – 1.9M FOLLOWERS
JACKIE APPIAH – 2.8M FOLLOWERS
YVONNE NELSON – 2.9M FOLLOWERS
