He got engaged to the love of his life Chioma,got Chris Brown as his grooms man and their track ‘Blow my mind' reigns number one on Nigerian charts. The artsist has now surpassed another milestone, his become the most viewed Nigerian artist on YouTube.
The ‘Fall' hitmaker has surpassed 500 million views across all his recent tracks. ‘Fall’ , ‘If', ‘Fia’ and ‘Assurance' are tracks that have deemed him worth of the crown. His Nigerian counterpart Wizkid is however the most streamed artist in Africa, globally.He is also the first African to reach 8 million monthly listeners on spotify. Is Nigeria taking over the Music Industry in Africa? With Burna Boy’s album launch ‘African Giant’ making its way to the top by the end of the year. Yemi Alade is reign champ in the women’s department becoming the first woman in Nigeria to have bag over 100million subscribers on YouTube.
Well if you can’t beat them join them. Sounds from the west are undeniably good but we need to support content from other countries as well. We need to promote diversity. Kudos to Davido on his new record.
