Search engine giant, Google, has revealed what Nigerians searched on the platform mostly in April 2022.

The search trends information was gleaned from data collated by Google based on what Nigerians have been searching for and asking the platform.

Google processes more than 40,000 search queries every second, translating to more than a billion searches per day and 1.2 trillion searches per year worldwide.

According to the data released by the company, the top searches in April in Nigeria were How can I link my NIN, Osinachi Nwachukwu, Grammy Awards 2022, Kwaku the Traveller, Rita Dominic and more.

Apart from this, the death of Nigerian gospel singer, Osinachi Nwachukwu, came as a shock especially as her untimely demise on April 8 was purportedly linked to her husband.
