Wizkid Becomes First Nigerian Artiste to Make No.1 on iTunes World Chart

Days ago, he become the first Nigerian artiste to make the Billboard Hot 100 and Top 2 Spots on Billboard + Twitter Trending 140 Charts, and it’s all thanks to his collaboration with Drake on the smash hit song, ‘One Dance’. Now, the ‘Ojuelegba’ singer has made iTunes World Chart and has remained on that spot for one week, and counting.

Wizkid shared the news with his fans on Twitter last night. “One Dance has now spent one whole week at #1 on iTunes worldwide,” he wrote, adding, “madness.”

The singer is gaining all the global recognition he deserves. In 2015, Star Boy broke the internet after Canadian rapper Drake dropped the remix of ‘Ojuelegba’ on his OVO Sound radio. Next Wizkid made it to FADER magazine, where he revealed his future collaborative project, and later, he was profiled as one of the 12 innovative singers in the world who have what the magazine described as ‘the coolest’ sounds.

And that’s not all.


In February, Wizkid made it to Vogue; he was named the Best Dressed Pop Star in Nigeria, adding another feather to his much-decorated cap.

And so, many fans agree with him that his successes are pure, exciting madness. Plus, we can’t wait for his next album to drop; it promises to be the bomb.
