It' s an incredible list holding equally incredibly powerful music celebrities who have steadfastly remained at the peak of their careers, ending the year 2012 with a deafening roar!

According to Google's annual Zeitgeist list, the top ten most searched music celebrities for the year ending 2012 are:

10. Asa

9. Flavour

8, Tuface

7. Tiwa Savage

6. Ice Prince

5. Timaya

4. P Square

3. D'banj

2. MI and

1. Davido.

Three out of the list (Asa, P Square and D'banj) had kept their acts well alive on local and international stages, while the others had concentrated more on holding their fans hostage back here in the country.

Tiwa Savage had re-branded herself and her music; moving from Flytime to being a Mavin and then Timaya who had jumped in just in time with his controversial music video "Bum bum"

Interestingly or rather surprisingly, wonder star Wiz Kid didn't make the list, neither did Marvin Crew boss Don Jazzy. Both of whom had endless issues tied to them the entire year especially Don Jazzy who severed business and perhaps friendship ties with D'banj before going on to float his own music label Mavin Crew.
