ETC Recommends: Our Favourite Youtube Channels
With how Internet has become so prevalent and cheaper (though not cheap enough) in Nigeria, I tend to not watch TV so much anymore. In fact, I think the last time I switched on my TV was close to a month ago. My computer on the other hand gets tons of action and when I’m on the internet browser, Youtube is usually the first tab I open.
What’s awesome about Youtube is that when you sign-in with your Google login, you can subscribe to users so that their content is curated for you in your account’s subscriptions and you can quickly click to view them at any time and honestly there is a plethora of content you can sink your teeth into and laugh,cry, be disgusted and learn. Yes, Youtube is essentially my TV now. For beginners though, I have written a little list that are a few of the channels I view as much as I can. They are varied for a well rounded viewing experience. If you like them, simply go back to the user’s page and click the red Subscribe button on the right.

These guys are funny though and the usual 11 minutes of gameplay they restrict to a game is filled with funny moments.
