Spotify reveals summer’s most streamed songs in Nigeria

It has been a great summer for Nigerian artists on Spotify, as the last three months shows that music lovers from all over the country chose to listen to songs by local artists during the season.

With global acceptance of Nigerian music and artists growing by the day, it is not surprising that more and more Nigerians are turning to hits from their home-grown artists on Spotify for their listening pleasure.

According to data from Spotify, in the last 90 days, nine local songs made the Top 10 most-streamed songs in Nigeria.

Topping the list is “Feeling” by Ladipo Eso popularly known as LADIPOE, followed by “Bounce” by Ruger and Olamide’s “Rock”. Fourth on the Top 10 list is WizKid’s “Essence” (feat. Justin Bieber & Tems), followed by “Soundgasm” by Rema, and “Understand” by Omah Lay.

“Nigerians’ support of homegrown talent has always been a joy to behold. It’s great to see that theme persevere and show up strong this summer!” says Phiona Okumu, Spotify Head of Music, Sub-Saharan Africa.

The only non-Nigerian song in the Top 10 list is “Dimension” by JAE5, the British-born Ghanaian Grammy Award-winning producer. The track which features Skepta & Rema came in at seven. Next on the list is “Outside” by Buju, followed by Wizkid and Burna Boy’s “Ginger”, and “Monalisa” by Lojay.
