Few days after the new song, “Ride It”, afropop Nigerian star, Ayodeji Balogun, aka Wizkid, has become the first African artist to hit eight million monthly streams on Spotify.
A few days after having only 6.9 million monthly listeners on Spotify, the Nigerian singer has soared in numbers to hit eight million monthly listeners on the platform.
Spotify is an online music streaming platform that pays royalties based on the number of artistes streams as a proportion of total songs streamed.
The previous record was held by Congolese rapper and singer, Maitre Gims, who had seven million monthly listeners.
This win follows Wizkid’s recent collaboration with DJ Spinall and Tiwa Savage on ‘Dis Love.’
The singer also featured on ‘Like,’ a new single by British-Ghanaian rapper and singer, Kojo Funds.
