As the long month of January draws to a close this week, Omah Lay continues to double down on his current winning streak as he maintains the No. 1 spot on the weekly Turntables Top 50 charts with “Godly”, one of the singles off his recent EP ‘What Have We Done’. The record-breaking song has now spent eight consecutive weeks atop the Turntable charts and is far ahead of the second longest number on streak, “Bad Influence” which sat on the charts for five consecutive weeks.
With 1.58 million equivalent streams, the track remains the highest performing song in the country across radio, TV, and streaming services. On the Top 50 charts, “Godly” is closely followed by DJ Kaywise’s “High Way” featuring Phyno at No. 2 which moved three places from its spot at No.3 in last week’s charts. This will be both artists’ first time in the Top 10 with their collaboration now joining Olamide’s “Infinity” as the highest-charting hip-hop song on the Top 50.
The rest of the top 5 consists of Bella Shmurda’s “Cash App” with Zlatan & Lincoln, which stays at its No. 3 peak for a third straight week. Olamide’s “Infinity” moves down to No. 4 after spending nine consecutive weeks at No.2, and is followed by Naira Marley’s “Koleyewon” at No.5 – moving seven spots its position at No. 12 last week – which makes it four Hip-Hop songs, predominantly performed in indigenous languages (Igbo or Yoruba) currently in the Top 5.
Olamide’s “Loading” featuring Bad Boy Timz and Davido’s “Jowo” interchange positions this week, with the former now at no.6 and the latter at no.7. Wizkid’s collaboration with Burna Boy “Ginger” is now at No.8, Rexxie and Moh Bad’s “KPK” is at No.9, with Davido and Mayorkun’s “The Best” closing out the top 10.
