Google Reveals SA’s Most Searched Artists Of 2013

Google has released its annual Zeitgeist list which features the year’s most searched trends, people, brands and musicians. According to the list, Swedish House Mafia was the most searched music act in South Africa this year. Unlike the Nigerian list (which comprises of only Naija musicians), the top 10 SA list only features three local acts – Vuyo Mokoena, Khuli Chana and Kurt Darren, who ranked in at No. 2, 3 and 4 respectively.

Google divides the lists into either one of the two categories: Most Searched and Trending. Most Searched – search topics with the largest search volume. Trending – search topics with the largest increase in search volume since the previous period.

This list is based on Trending. Check out the full list below.

Swedish House Mafia 1
Vuyo Mokoena 2
Khuli Chana 3
Kurt Durren 4
Bon Jovi 5
Celine Dion 6
Robin Thicke 7
