The sitting Ukrainian president is probably the most popular head of the country ever. In particular, his Instagram page has 9.5 million followers, which is the best result among both politicians and celebrities. You can bet on Volodymyr Zelensky to keep this record as he has all chances to stay on top.
A positive image on social media plays an important role nowadays and ruling the country is not an exception. The sitting president of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky is living proof of this theory. His popularity on Instagram has doubled after winning the election in 2019. As a former actor and comedian, Zelensky often uses videos and photos for communication with Ukrainians. Every post earns thousands of likes and comments. Therefore, keeping his social media life ongoing is necessary for the 6th president.
According to online sportsbooks in Ukraine, there is an active bet on Volodymyr Zelensky to stay the most popular person on Instagram. The president seems to keep this record for a number of reasons and here they are.
Why is Zelensky so popular on social media?
Usage of Instagram is one of the easiest ways to keep in touch with the audience nowadays. Celebs are giving live concerts, while presidents speak to their nations via this app. Ukrainian head Volodymyr Zelensky is not an exception.
Zelensky is probably the most popular Ukrainian on social media. He has 1.2 million followers on Facebook and 9.5 million fans on Instagram. Interestingly, Zelensky has doubled the number of followers on both sites after becoming the president of Ukraine. His Instagram research showed that most of Zelensky’s audience are Ukrainian females aged between 25-34. It can be explained by his big popularity among the youth, who is the target audience on this app. Senior people in Ukraine prefer other networks for communication, mostly Russian-speaking and simpler in usage. Most of them only read news online and have no reason to create profiles on social media.
Another reason why Zelensky is the most followed Ukrainian celebrity is his popularity as an actor and comedian. The sitting president has performed on stage since the late 1990s, but reached the top in the 2000s. In 2003, he launched a humor show Kvartal 95, which is still extremely popular in Ukraine. Later, Zelensky switched to acting and filmed in dozens of movies, including Servant of People, where he played a fictional president of Ukraine. What an irony! So, there is no wonder that Zelensky had strong support from people during the last election in Ukraine.
Bet on Volodymyr Zelensky to reach 10 million followers by May
1xBet Sportsbook made a prediction that Zelensky will reach 10 million followers on Instagram by May 2020. This is possible as most people in Ukraine spend their time online these days. Therefore, the sitting president can get a new audience even among seniors. Importantly, Zelensky daily posts video reports about the current situation, so it will be reasonable to follow him and stay tuned to the latest news in Ukraine.
On the other hand, 1.05 odds at one of the best gambling sites in the country show that Zelensky fails to be the first Ukrainian to reach 10 million fans on Instagram. Primarily, his inability to cope with the mess in Ukraine slowly leads to people’s dissatisfaction. It can be seen from different news that the actor’s rate falls every day. So, you can even bet on Volodymyr Zelensky’s fans to unsubscribe and earn some cash on the Ukrainian leader.
