1. #192countries

Heineken launched a new bottle in celebration of its presence in #192countries with a unique feature which allows users to scan the bottle label using the Shazam app. The new bottle also packs the promise of rewarding some lucky winners with a trip to Amsterdam.

The craze even extended offline with the new Heineken bottles selling out in its first week.

As at the time of writing, the hashtag #192countries has 352 million impressions and over 30 thousand engagements


Our hearts aren’t the only things Nigeria broke on Wednesday as the Super Eagles also attempted to break the internet before, during and in the immediate aftermath of the dramatic fixture between Nigeria and Argentina. In a fashion not-to-dissimilar to a Hollywood blockbuster, the events of the game also spurned a spinoff trend, with the word “Ighalo” trending all day on Thursday. Nigerians were quick to vilify the forward for his misses during the fixture and talk of the game dominated Twitter and Instagram all through Wednesday and Thursday.

The hashtag currently has over 100,000 engagements.

3. Berger To Ajah

Social media went into a frenzy on Wednesday Night when the Berger to Ajah story took over the Internet. The story of accused rape which was quickly debunked made for some interesting tweets, captions and of course memes. Engagements on the hashtag currently stand at 43, 853 as at the time of writing
