TurnTable Top 100: MohBad’s “Ask About Me” Reaches No. 1

The first artist to posthumously hit the chart's summit

In death, Mohbad’s light continues to shine brighter than ever. “Ask About Me,” which has emerged as a huge crowd favourite, tallied 3.40 million on-demand streams (No. 1 on streaming) and 41.4 million in radio reach (No. 3 on radio). For the great street-pop bard, this is his first No. 1 song in Nigeria and the first No. 1 song off an EP in 2023—the first since Young Jonn’s “Xtra Cool” spent three weeks at No. 1 in October 2022.


With “Ask About Me” at No. 1, MohBad becomes the first artist to posthumously reach No. 1 on all the three major aggregate charts in Nigeria: the Official Nigeria Top 100, the Official Top 50 Albums Chart in Nigeria (‘Blessed’) and Official Artiste Top 100—MohBad topped the chart last week. “Ask About Me” also sets a new record for the longest climb to No. 1 in singles chart history in Nigeria, reaching the summit of the TurnTable Top 100 in its 22nd week on the chart. The late artist has received a massive increase in streaming and radio activity in Nigeria since his passing. 

Asake’s historic No. 1 song “Lonely At The Top” falls from No. 1 to No. 2 on this week’s Top 100, after an 11-week run that made it the joint longest No. 1 on the chart. The song tallied 55.5 million in radio reach (No. 1 on radio) and 2.26 million in radio reach (No. 3 on streaming). This marks the first time the song has had a downward movement on the chart since release, a new record of 14 weeks on the chart, including 11 weeks at No. 1. 

MohBad’s “Beast & Peace” holds at its No. 3 peak on the Top 100 – it tallied 3.18 million on-demand streams (No. 2 on streaming) and 12.6 million in radio reach (No. 48 on radio). Burna Boy’s “City Boys” rebounds from No. 6 to No. 4 on the Top 100 after peaking at No. 2 while Crayon and Ayra Starr’s “Ngozi” dips from No. 4 to No. 5. MohBad’s “Pariwo” with Bella Shmurda moves to a new peak of No. 6, while “Peace” dips two spots from last week to No. 7.


Rounding off this week’s top ten are MohBad’s “Sabi” holds at No. 8, while Ayox and Zlatan’s “Walking Dead (Tribute to MohBad)” peaks at No. 9, a 16-spot jump from No. 25. It is Ayox’s first top ten entry ever and Zlatan’s third. MohBad’s “Sorry” ascends two places to No. 9 on this week’s Top 100, reaching the top ten for the first time. It now holds the record for the longest period between release and top ten debut on the singles chart in Nigeria: Two years and 41 weeks.
