The collaborated song, ‘Ginger,’ has placed Grammy winners, Wizkid and Burna Boy atop the most streamed artists list on the streaming platform, Spotify, in Nigeria.
When two Grammy elephants fight on one song with same ginger that secured them awards, that song doesn’t have any other option than securing more places in the hearts of buoyant Nigerian music enthusiasts. With more than 70 million songs, 2.2 million podcast titles, and over 4 billion playlists available Spotify listeners in Nigeria, Wizkid and Burna Boy’s collaboration tops Nigerian listeners’ choice list.
Four out of the top five most-streamed artists across Africa are from Nigeria. Topping the list are Wizkid, Burna Boy, Davido, and Rema.
While Rema’s ‘Bounce’ tops as the most-streamed track in Nigeria over the past month, Wizkid and Burna Boy’s ‘Ginger’ and Teni’s collaboration with Davido on ‘For You,’ came out tops.
With a strong appetite for local sounds, it comes as no surprise that Hot Hits Naija is one of the top-streamed playlists among users. Spotify’s Africa to the world playlist African Heat comes in second reflecting listeners’ keenness to discover music from all over the continent.
According to Spotify, residents of Lagos, Suleja, Abuja, Port Harcourt, and Benin City account for the most Spotify streams in Nigeria. The streaming platform also noted that the data used in compiling the list is based on Spotify user consumption between February 23 and March 22, 2021.
