Burna Boy dethrones Wizkid, Davido on Billboard, becomes Africa’s most-streamed artiste

Nigerian singer Burna Boy has been unveiled as the most-streamed artist in Sub-Saharan Africa, according to Billboard.

The list titled “Billboard’s Top 15 Sub-Saharan African Artists” which is based on global views, showed Starboy Wizkid has fallen below the pecking order.

With many of his fans expecting him to be the leader of the Nigerian music industry, he fell five places down the list and three places above his compatriot Mr. Eazi.

Burna Boy once again showed just why he is truly the African Giant.

He took the top spot with 435.57 million views. Tanzanian Diamond Platnumz comes in second with 291.98 million views.

However, the two self-acclaimed “Greatest Artistes of all time“, Davido and Wizkid had 285.76 million and 176.23 million respectively.

Also featured on the list is Sinach, the Nigerian gospel singer who became the first African to top the Billboard USA Christian songwriter chart last month.
