FIVE Nigerians ranked high in Spotify’s most streamed artiste in Sub-Saharan Africa for the streaming platform’s ‘wrapped’ edition in 2023.
Spotify wrapped is a yearly compilation of listeners’ top music picks on the streaming platform.
On Thursday, November 30, Spotify released the list of most streamed artistes in Sub-Saharan Africa, with Burna Boy leading the Nigerian contingent.
The Grammy-award-winning singer ranked second behind Canadian rapper and global Hip Hop star Drake. He is clinching this feat for the second time in a row.
In 2022, he secured the title of the most globally streamed artiste in the region following the success of his hit single, ‘Last Last’ and the ‘Love Damini’ album.
Following Burna Boy on the list is Asake with his album ‘Work of Art’ which became a global hit. Asake clinched the top position of the most streamed artistes in Nigeria while his songs ‘Lonely At The Top’, ‘2:30’, and ‘Amapiano’ dominated the list of the most streamed tracks for the year.
Also making it to the list is Davido for his ‘Timeless’ album. Omah Lay and Rema are Nigerian artists who finished in 5th and 7th place, respectively, on the top 10 list.
