The Africa Social charts began on the 27th of January 2021 and has been running ever since. It began as just a Top 20 and then went on to become a Top 40 with a more transparent method showing the points accumulated by each personality during that week.
The charts work by tracking the social media activity of each week in the whole of Africa. Currently, the chart tracks activity only on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Google.
