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.’
