YouTube has released its annual year-in-review video, called “Rewind 2019: For the Record,” that highlights the platform’s biggest creators and trends in 2019.
The rewind revealed the top 15 trending videos in Nigeria in 2019, from scripted entertainment to documentaries, to comedy. The list ranges from Mark Angel Comedy’s commander to Zlatan & Burna Boy’s Killin Dem, Sports highlights to Big Brother Naija’s Finale.
The “Rewind 2019” video is a major departure from those in prior years, which have regularly been elaborate productions featuring dozens of the platform’s biggest YouTubers and the year’s viral highlights.
Last year’s video was widely hated for leaving out some of YouTube’s most controversial creators, and it quickly
became the most-disliked video of all time on YouTube.
As a result, YouTube stuck to using data this year to show lists of 2019’s Rewind.
The top trending videos on YouTube for 2019 are based on views, shares, comments, likes and more. YouTube Rewind brings together the biggest viral videos featuring today’s biggest YouTube stars, mainstream and current affairs personalities.
