Eyes On YouTube! 10 Vloggers To Watch Out for In 2018



Gone are the days when conventional TV reigned supreme. YouTube, since its inception, has offered viewers a much wider platform for visual entertainment and social interaction.

    Hey Bella Naija and Staff! This is a great list, but there are other people that I think need to be on this list such as Stephanie Ani, Bunmi Eleshin and Tayo Aina Films. They all have amazing content that I’m sure everyone will like.

      This comment is exactly the reason why Nigeria is WAY behind- The Nigerian mentality is f—ed up. What does views on the channel have to do with the quality of content that these you tubers have created. And you’re clearly a sad person and more so a hater because I checked the metal health video channel she has at least 2 videos that have more 7000 views. She has taken her time to impact people positively. What have you achieved in your own lifetime? whoever you are man or woman change your ways and your thinking and try to see the positive in people not the negatives. Trust me you will be a happier person! Enjoy your weekend ma/sir.

      this post is supposed to make them known, why would they post people who already have enough views? lets not read meaning to everything. i feel this post is to encourage them and make them known to people.

      Build your network then. This excuse that people know people so therefore, is stale. Truth is, its the people you know that you can leverage on to get to where you want to be. And it’s not a bad thing at all as long as you use them the right way. I follow Tito’s channel and he has amazing content. Whether the views are many or not is not even important seeing that we are more interested in Bobrisky than we are in meaningful stuff these days.

      You make a fair point. But the views weren’t the point of the post. They all make great content… But yes… Writer knows them personally and or is on the list as well. Makes the entire thing a giant doughnut.

    I see everyone attacking the guy that said this list is simply filled with one persons friends list. While it is a great list and all these YouTubers make amazing content I am sure they are all aware that this is a biased list that had absolutely zero research put in. Just a list of friends of the BN contributor. And I am hoping the creators on this list do not fool themselves into thinking this is any type of accolade or meaningful recognition. Keep doing what you do and maybe someday a stranger who loves your content for the quality and not the friendship will write about you.

    I also have a theory… The writer is on the list as well. El oh El.

      But no one said these YouTubers are the best. The title is “10 YouTubers to Watch”

  12. Netizen

    February 6, 2018 at 8:12 am

    I’m here for Fisayo??

  13. Debby Nicole

    February 6, 2018 at 10:12 am

    I think there a lot more YouTubers in Nigeria that could easily have made the top 10. People like Mecksoncrownbtv, sassy Funke, ademolavictortv, misstechy, akah Nani, anyway, it’s my opinion as I love them.

    • Prince

      February 6, 2018 at 2:39 pm

      It’s not a Top 10 List. It’s “10 Youtubers to watch”

  14. Stephanie Ani

    February 6, 2018 at 8:25 pm

    my name is STEPHANIE ANI, I have over 70 videos on my channel and I post 3 times everyweek since I become consistent not more than 5 months ago, please check out my youtube channel

    • Tito

      February 7, 2018 at 9:48 am

      Yes people pls check out Stephanie’s channel. She’s definitely among my 10 to look out for in 2018. Plus, she’s an amazing and affordable Make Up Artist. Much lov always Steph! Keep doing you. ?
      YouTube: Stephanie Ani
