This is the very moment to proudly scream ‘Nigeria to the world!’ because our star musicians, Wizkid and Davido are making us super proud with their influence in the world. Both singers have landed spots at the top of Billboard’s World Music Sales Charts this week.
Wizkid’s collaboration with Beyonce on ‘Brown Skin Girl’ from the ‘Lion King: The Gift’ album is number one for the second week in a row, while Davido’s collaboration with Chris Brown on his new single ‘Blow my mind’ debuted on the charts at number three this week.
‘Blow my mind’ which was released just a week ago has already racked up 6.9 million views on YouTube, while Brown Skin Girl’s official audio has over 7 million listens on YouTube and multitude reposts. Davido is also preparing to go on a ‘Blow My Mind’ tour in New York, Lebanon, Marbella, Mykonos and Cape Verde.
Wizkid is also going on a tour soon to Paris, the o2 Arena in London, Manchester and a few other locations. Starboy also has another feature with United Kingdom rapper, Kojo Funds coming soon. His other collabs with Olamide and ID Cabasa, ‘Totori’ and ‘Dis Love’ with DJ Spinall and Tiwa Savage have been tearing up the airwaves.
Burna Boy is also on the top 10 Billboard World Album list at Number 6 with ‘African Giant’, moving from 13th position last week. The ‘Lion King: The Gift’ album which features both Wizkid and Burna Boy is also on that same chart at Number 5.
Burna Boy, Wizkid and Davido are really making us proud on the international front and we can’t contain our excitement!
