The odds of other Nigerian ladies joining such a list is infinitesimally low so you just gotta commend these two.

Love her or Hater her, Kim Kadashian ought to be included in this List. Her influence is credible cus she motivates people to want to search for her(online), insult her nd read about her latest happenings. That's influence!
