Afropop star Wizkid has emerged the first African musician to hit eight million monthly streams on Spotify. The new record was revealed by the online streaming company on Monday, August 19, marking a new popularity for Wizkid. Previous artiste before him, Congolese Rapper Maitre Gims, had seven million monthly hit.
This win follows Wizkid’s recent collaboration with DJ Spinall and Tiwa Savage on ‘Dis Love’. The singer also featured on ‘Like,’ a new single by British-Ghanaian rapper and singer, Kojo Funds. The music star is also the first African artist to walk the runway at a Dolce and Gabbana fashion show while his music ‘Soco’ played at the background.
