In October 2021, a séxtape involving a music star, Tiwa Savage, was released on social media and because some wanted to feed their eyes, there was a scramble for the video.
As a result of this, internet users used the Google search engine to make queries about their motion picture and made Tiwa Savage séxtape one of the top searches on the platform this month.
Before the 11-second video was released, the former Mavin Records had informed the public that she was being blackmailed over a séx tape.
She claimed the video was mistakenly posted online by her partner and this triggered a frantic search for the tape before it was eventually released some days later.
Another trending topic for the month was the first anniversary of the October 20, 2020, #EndSARS protest, which shook the country and attracted international attention because of the alleged shooting of peaceful protesters by Nigerian soldiers at the Lekki Toll Gate in Lagos.
On October 20 this year, at the #EndSARS memorial protest, some Nigerian youth and celebrities like Folarin Falana, aka Falz, and Debo Adebayo, aka Mr Macaroni, drove through the toll gate in a memorial automobile procession.
In addition, the conclusion of the much-anticipated boxing bout between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder piqued the interest of Nigerian sports fans. Boxing match reviews and images of Wilder taking beatings and being slammed into the ropes by Fury filled the Internet, prompting fans to search for more.
Also, October 5 was World Teachers’ Day, and Nigerian teachers celebrated like the rest of the world. Hundreds of teachers from around the federation gathered in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, for a commemorative celebration.
The Federal Government of Nigeria announced plans to pay teachers higher salaries effective January 2022, along with other promised benefits and this spurred reactions online.
Other interesting searches by Nigerians in the month of October were the releases of hit songs Alcohol and Levels by Joe Boy and Flavour respectively.
‘Nmandi Kanu Biafra’ was also a top searched term by Nigerians who were interested in the ongoing trial of the pro-Biafra political activist and the adjournment of his court case until November 10 by the Federal High Court in Abuja.
Below is the full list of the top trending search topics that captured the interest of Nigerians in the month of October:

The Nigerian movie industry deserves more funding to enable it to get to its full potential, the Brand Manager of Rite Foods Limited, makers of Bigi carbonated drink, Ms Boluwatife Adedugbe, has said.
She said it’s because of this Rite Foods is promoting Nigerian talents in entertainment, special skills, and ideapreneurship, noting that Nollywood, as the industry is fondly called, contributes massively to the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) and should be assisted to create more revenue for young Nigerians attracted to it.
Ms Adedugbe said this as the company supported the premiere of a new film, the Progressive Tailors Club at the Filmhouse Cinemas IMAX, Lekki Lagos, on October 24, 2021.
The event had guests from different classes of movie lovers who were eager to catch a glimpse of the exciting movie.
The event’s highlight was a fashion competition organized by Bigi for 20 shortlisted designers across the country who had participated in the online campaign to showcase their creativity in the tailoring profession.
Three winners emerged from the contest, and they included Debbie Kouture from Ekiti State, who clinched the first prize of N150,000, while The Daiamen and Lamoimee fashion designers, both from Lagos, took the second and third position with N100,000 and N50,000 respectively.
The producer of the flick, Mr Niyi Akinmolayan, expressed delight with Bigi’s contribution to the movie’s success, stating that the leading soft drink brand had contributed immensely to talent development and the entertainment industry by taking it to an enviable height.
“As you can see, the Bigi soft drink is all over the place; it is a great support from a quality brand,” he affirmed.
Speaking about the movie, he explained that the film was built around the nature of Nigerians but from the tailors’ perspectives, as they come up with different characters which are sometimes funny and provocative.
According to him, the movie would also be premiered in Ibadan before it is taken to the cinemas nationwide from Friday, October 29.

With the launch of the new FreePods 3, Oraimo has become the first smart accessory maker to produce convertible earbuds with both Bass and Awareness mode.
The FreePods 3 come with two different modes that users can switch to seamlessly. Both modes offer unique experiences that fit perfectly into researched user preferences. Users can block all of the noise out and travel into another world when listening to music with their earbuds.
The Bass Mode
The Bass Mode keeps out ambient noise and prevents every form of air leakage to boost the bass from any audio output when users listen. This mode has proven to be great for watching movies as it creates a cinematic audio experience that is thoroughly enjoyable. It can also be perfect for meditation exercises as it helps avoid any form of distraction.
For Sound, Oraimo has introduced an all-new exclusive sound technology called HavyBass, the Oraimo exclusive bass boost system, which will be applied in Oraimo audio products.
They have collaborated with world-class audio engineers who used to work in Harman Kardon, to deliver the best sound quality. Conscious of the fact that Africans like bass, they have also made the 2baba tuned version great for afrobeat.
The Awareness Mode
The Awareness Mode allows users to adapt to their surroundings without losing the rich quality of the music as it slips into the ears.
Oraimo has taken the listening experience to increasingly new heights for its users ever since it launched its smart audio accessory line of products. The brand was the first to launch the TWS feature in the Nigerian market and has not rested on its oars ever since.
Oraimo has gained staunchly devoted supporters and advocates over the years because of its indubitable reputation for creating the most reliable smartphone accessories as seen in its brand projects – charging bricks to power banks, charging chords, and down to FreePods.
As a result of this, Oraimo has recorded a great number of achievements over the years. Some of her recent awards include the National Award for the Most Outstanding Quality Mobile Electronics Trading & Distribution Company of the Year, Nigeria’s Best World-Class Quality Phone Accessories Products Company of the Year 2021, and Africa’s Most Innovative Mobile Product Company in Support of Fintech Services Brand of the Year 2021.
In addition to these awards, the brand currently has over 100 million users in over 50 countries
Oraimo continues to solve the problem of access to durable smart accessories for users in Nigeria and beyond, through its e-commerce store www.ng.oraimo.com. Several consumers are also enjoying added value from its warranty services provided in partnership with Carlcare.
In addition, Oraimo has also introduced a new technology for its power series AniFast technology, its Oraimo’s exclusive smart-charging technology.
As the company continues to push its excellent service delivery beyond the envelope, its customers will only continue to enjoy smart accessories delivered at best.
