The world is still steeped in the coronavirus pandemic even though it appears people have lost all sensitivity. And what have influencers been doing? The formula has been to increase digital presence and penetration and we’ve been monitoring activities and how effective they have been doing this since lockdown started.
5. Fisayo Fosudo
Fisayo comes across as young and exciting, and that’s because he’s young and exciting. He’s also an in-house favorite on gadget reviews and makes the YNaija Influencer ranking again after appearing last year. His review of the Access More Banking App should do all the convincing.
As a style influencer and content creator, Onyiibekeh brings a refreshing dimension to Instagram photography. Despite the coronavirus pandemic and the then-stay-at home-home orders, she was one of the few influencers getting really resourceful about content. With photography, she’s been having Zoom classes where she tutors newbies or intermediates or anyone seeking to build a strong online presence how to step up their Instagram game.

Tobi Ayeni aka MissTechNG is arguably one of the most visible women in the tech influencer space, and when June ushered in a cascade of protests in America against racism in all its malignant forms, she made a Black Lives Matter-inspired video using emojis and turning them black. It was a clever piece of activism on her part, and finds an intersection with how the world of STEM has largely remained white.
I know I am in my feelings on this one, but I just couldn’t resist changing the colour of the emojis.
That being said, we’ve had E N O U G H! 🙅🏿♀️ pic.twitter.com/Kmo7vqn0r1

2. Denola Grey
Denola Grey isn’t new to the YNaija influencer ranking on account of his status as a style influencer, especially in a fashion space populated with old and emerging faces. Maintaining consistency and churning out new ways to present content has been Denola’s digital hallmark. His participation in the Vogue challenge by repurposing his iconic AMVCA outfit is exquisite, not to mention his latest video shuffle of outfits with mesmerizing jump cuts.

1. Dimmah Umeh
