Spotify 2020 Wrapped: Most Streamed Nigerian Albums

Published

on

2020 gave us music. Everything went south since the infamous Covid-19 hit centre stage and in no due time broke the record, becoming the most sold and shutdown show ever in human history. But if there was something that at least stood the test of times this difficult year, it is our Nigerian music industry continually chuning out hits, classics and music that will forever be dear to us – the fans and listeners.

Spotify, one of the most used music streaming platforms in the world, despite not having a branch in Nigeria and the website being inaccessible in the country (unless you use VPN of course) favoured our Nigerian music industry and its artistes.

Spotify released their yearly “Wrapped” report, detailing the most streamed artistes, albums, singles etc. by numbers and Nigeria music industry found some light of success on the platform.

Off the dome, anyone could have guessed which artiste would come out victorious with the most streamed album for the year to be Burna Boy for his “Twice As Tall” album. Burna boy recorded a stunning 64 million streams; a 31 million streams spacing of second placed Wizkid’s fourth studio album “Made In Lagos” which recorded 33 million streams on Spotify.

Nigeria’s first lady in the music industry, Tiwa Savage comes in third position with her “Celia” gathering an impressive 15.1 million streams, although still a wide gap between second placed MIL.

Fast rising R&B act, Omah Lay would secure the fourth place with his debut EP “Get Layd” amassing a nice 10 million streams (not bad for a newbie). The next 3 ranked albums will only be separated by decimals difference as Adekunle Gold’s “Afropop Vol. 1” got 9.6 million streams to close the Top 5 most streamed Nigerian albums on Spotify for 2020.

2Baba’s “Warriors” – 9.18 million streams; OBO Davido’s “A Better Time” with 9.15 million streams. Both albums ranked at the sixth and seventh position respectively on the list.

The closing three albums, eight to tenth would also be ranked based on difference in decimals with Pop and R&B star, Fireboy leading the pack in eight position with 7.93 streams garnered by his sophomore album “Apollo”. Kizz Daniel’s “King Of Love” and Queen of Naija’s In-House music, Niniola’s “Colors & Sounds” raking in 7.69 and 7.61 streams respectively to close the Top 10 most streamed Nigerian albums on Spotify for 2020.
