Undeniably, Ruger closed off his 2022 with a bang, growing his superstardom by constantly sharpening his captivating take on Nigerian Dancehall. The singer’s recent release “Asiwaju” continues his ascent into perennial hit-making status and the numbers are backing him up in a big way. Leading the Turntable Top 100 chart for the sixth consecutive week, “Asiwaju tallied 2.81 million streams—good enough for the seventh straight week on top of the streaming chart—and 78.9 million in radio reach. It joins an elite list of songs that have completed the clean sweep as it moves to No. 1 for the first time on this week’s YouTube chart.

The song has spent a total of six weeks as Ruger keeps rewriting his personal record for the longest No. 1. It becomes only the eighth song ever to reach No. 1 on all charts in Nigeria. Setting more records the single tallied 78.9 million in radio reach during the week of January 13 – 19, 2023: setting a new record for the biggest week by any single on the radio breaking the previous record held by Kizz Daniel & EMPIRE’s “Cough (ODO).” 

Kizz Daniel’s “RTID” maintains at No. 2 for another week peaking at No. 2 on radio reach and 2.71 million streams. Omah Lay’s “Soso” is giving Kizz Daniel’s  “RTID” a run for its money as there is a slim margin with 2.75 on-demand million streams and No. 2 on radio reach. “Personal” from Zinoleesky still remains at No.4 after peaking at No.3 while Mavin All-Star’s top-charting song “Won Da Mo“rounds up the top 5 after spending a second week at No.5

“Xtra Cool” from Young Jonn is steady at No.6 after peaking at No.1 for three weeks in 2022. This was his first time leading the charts. Seyi Vibez’s “Chance (Na Ham)” ascends to a new peak of No. 7 making it his highest charting single in Nigeria. It was No. 10 on streaming and achieved 37.2 million in radio reach making it No. 10 on the radio during the tracking week. Victony and Tempoe’s “Soweto”  makes an interesting comeback 10 weeks later after re-entering the top ten peaking at No.8

Rounding out the top ten; EMPIRE & Kizz Daniel’s “Cough (ODO)” slips to No. 9 while Asake’s “Joha” dips to No. 10.
