Nigerian artists experience record-breaking year on Spotify
The streaming giant’s Head of Music in Sub-Saharan Africa, Phiona Okumu, said this year’s Spotify Wrapped is a testament to the power of music to connect people and bring them closer to the culture and traditions of Nigeria.
It was during the year Rema’s remix of his super hit Calm Down with Selena Gomez became the first African-led single to reach a billion streams on Spotify. The song is also the first by a Nigerian Afrobeats artist to feature on the top 10 chart of most streamed recordings globally on Spotify, finishing in eighth position.
“Nigeria is a hotbed of musical talent, and we’re incredibly proud to showcase the diversity and passion of Nigerian music lovers through Wrapped,” she said.
