Asake leads the debut edition of the TurnTable Top 100

an important development for the chart

Over the past two years, the TurnTable chart has been one of the most consistently accurate charts for Nigerian music. Due to the dearth of verifiable data on music out of Nigeria, their introduction on the scene was welcome as they filled a much-needed gap within the industry.

Since its inception, the TurnTable mission has always been to provide statistical data around the music we so love, and their latest venture is an indication of their dedication to reflecting the Afropop space as it continues to grow and spread exponentially across the globe. Introducing the TurnTable Top 100, a new flagship chart that encompasses all platforms in the country (streaming and airplay), which is powered by data collected across all streaming platforms and airplay data provided by Radiomonitor.

TurnTable’s Hot 100 is based on a careful formula drawn from audio and visual streams within Nigeria. It also counts airplay on radio and satellite TV, becoming the golden standard for the provision of comprehensive music activity, including the much-touted No. 1 song in Nigeria.

To that effect, Asake has the first No. 1 song on the TurnTable HOT 100. Counting from July 1st to July 7th, “Peace Be Unto You” has accumulated a staggering 2.94million in streams and 68.8million in airplay impressions.

Kizz Daniel and Tekno’s “Buga (Lo Lo Lo”) ranks at second place, with 3.07million streams and 62.1milion airplay impressions. The Mavins’ all-star “Overloading (OVERDOSE)” comes closely behind, with 2.86million Nigerian streams and 48.7million in airplay reach. Burna Boy’s “Last Last” is No. 4 with 1.66 million Nigerian streams and 53.9 million airplay impression. SPINALL & Asake’s “PALAZZO” rounds up the top five with 1.69 million Nigerian streams and 48.6 million in airplay reach.

Elsewhere in the Top 10 of this premier Hot 100, Camidoh’s “Sugarcane (Remix)” with Mayorkun, Darkoo and King Promise is No. 6, continuing its enjoyable foray into the Nigerian market – it tallied 1.40million Nigerian streams and 45.1 million airplay impressions. Ruger’s “Girlfriend” is No. 7 with 1.47 million Nigerian streams and 40.1 million airplay impressions.

Rounding out the top ten, Zinoleesky’s “Loving You” is No. 8, Mayorkun’s “Certified Loner (No Competition)” is No. 9 and Omah Lay’s “Woman” is No. 10.

In more extensive dives of the chart, you’d find that there are 30 non-Nigerian artists on the Top 100 in both lead and featured capacities. The majority of Chris Brown, Future, DaBaby, Beyonce, Jack Harlow, 21 Savage, Cardi B, Lil Durk, Kanye West, Post Malone and Roddy Ricch are from the US, while Darkoo, ArrDee, Ed Sheeran, Harry Styles, Cat Burns, Tion Wayne and La Roux are from the UK. Five are from our frequent collaborators Ghana, with songs from Camidoh, King Promise, Black Sherif, Stonebwoy and Gyakie.
