Most popular Kenyan celebrities on Instagram 2021
With over 1billion active users worldwide, Instagram is one of the most popular social media platforms. Whether they have a loyal fandom or a compelling feed, the number of Instagram followers says a lot about a celebrity's social pop status. Currently, the most followed account worldwide is footballer Cristiano's Instagram, with 366million followers.
However, today, we take a look at the top 10 most popular Kenyan celebrity Instagram accounts in 2021.
The award-winning actress is among the first Kenyan celebrity to have a verified Instagram account and currently tops the list with a 9million following. She rose to stardom after winning an Oscar for Twelve Years a Slave, and as her star in Hollywood rises, the more people become hungry for more information about her; lifestyle, fashion sense, and friends, thus the increasing numbers on social media.
Coming in second is self-proclaimed president of comedy Eric Omondi with 3.6million followers. Eric won the hearts of many Kenyans after joining the cast of the Churchill Live show years ago. He has since continued gaining traction with his hilarious skits, online public stunts, and his popular reality show Wife Material.
It's no surprise that the self-proclaimed president of single mothers is among the top five on the list. The singer has 3million followers who seem to keenly watch out for her continuous advice on Instagram as she once said that everything she posts online about her life is true.
The celebrated media personality is one of the most active Kenyans on Instagram with a daily update of her life on the Insta stories. She currently has 2.9million followers, and this doesn't come as a surprise as she was named as one of the most searched individuals on google for the last 15 years earlier this year.
From being a comedian to entrepreneur to radio presenter, among other titles, Jalango is one of the most influential people on social media. Born Felix Odiwour, the celebrity has 2.5million followers and has proved to be one of the most stylish personalities in Kenya.
