When it comes to content creation and consumption, YouTube is almost catching up to the mainstream media. In Africa, YouTube is very popular. Every day, creators emerge from the Google-owned platform, go popular, and establish a space where like-minded people may exchange and market their ideas. Comedians and entertainment channels are the most popular in Ghana. That said, who are the top 10 YouTubers in Ghana as of 2021?
On YouTube, musicians have some of the most devoted fans. This is due to the fact that music sells more than anything else. People enjoy listening to music to unwind, have fun, or because they admire art. However, non-traditional celebrities had difficulty breaking into the YouTube realm since they lacked the same level of visibility as singers, actresses, media figures, and other popular celebrities.
