YouTube 2022

Video streaming platform, YouTube has unveiled its lists ranking the top trending videos, music videos, Shorts, and creators in Nigeria for 2022. According to the company, this year’s lists are reflective of the most important moments to unfold in 2023 on and offline.

This year, YouTube released five lists:

  1. Top Shorts (NEW): A list ranking the most viewed Shorts  in Nigeria in 2022.
  2. Top Trending Videos: A list ranking the most viewed Trending videos in Nigeria in 2022.
  3. Top Music Videos: A list ranking the most viewed music videos in Nigeria in 2022.
  4. Top Creators: Based on subscribers gained in 2022 in Nigeria. This list includes long form, Shorts, and multiformat Creators.
  5. Breakout Creators: Based on subscribers gained in 2022 in Nigeria, and channel tripling in size when compared to 2021 (+200% year-over- year growth). This list includes long form, Shorts, and multiformat creators.

The Top Trending Videos list  is based on a range of factors - beyond just views - that indicate how “trending” a video really is. The YouTube Culture & Trends team also considers engagement and looks at signals like shares and likes of a certain video.

YouTube announced that YouTube Shorts are being watched by over 1.5 billion logged-in users every month and averaging over 30 billion daily views. The company also announced that YouTube paid more than 50 Billion (USD) to creators, artists, and media companies in the 3 years before June 2022.

More than two million people participate in YouTube’s partnerships program around the world. YouTube’s subscription services, YouTube Premium and YouTube Music, now have more than 80 million users, including trailers, around the world.
