All over the world celebrities buy social media followers. Since most of them are shallow people with no self worth except what is provided by being popular, they buy fake followers to pad their ‘real’ ones so they feel more important than they are.
It’s a fairly normal practice, and many Ghanaian celebrities do so as well. John Dumelo is no different, which is why a social media rankings should check engagement, rather than raw number of followers, to determine the most popular accounts.
A list dubbed the African Social Media Power Report for 2017 has adjudged Dumelo as the 8th most followed African celebrity on Facebook. Dumelo’s 5m followers puts him on the top ten list.
The actor took to Instagram to celebrate this bought achievement.
The list was compiled by Nigerian firm CampsBay and only looks at raw number of followers. Again, it’s easy to buy followers, what is more crucial should be how engaged your followers are with your content.
Anyway, the full list is a who’s who of top African celebrities.
