Nigerian singer, Wizkid has become the first African artist to hit eight million monthly streams on Spotify.

Spotify is an online, music streaming platform that pays royalties based on the number of artists streams as a proportion of total songs streamed.

Streaming records revealed Wizkid’s popularity on the platform on Monday. The previous record was held by Congolese rapper and singer, Maitre Gims. He had seven million monthly listeners.

This win follows Wizkid’s recent collaboration with DJ Spinall and Tiwa Savage on Dis Love.

The singer also featured on I Like, a new single by British-Ghanaian rapper and singer, Kojo Funds.

He was also featured on Beyonce’s “Brown Skin Girl” with Blue Ivy Carter and Saint Jhn.

In 2018, he became the first African artiste to sell out Skyway Theatre. The only other artist who has achieved the same feat in Minnesota is Beyonce.

The singer also recently made Billboard entry for his collaboration with Beyonce on her ‘Lion King’-inspired album.
