TurnTable Top 50: Black Sherif’s “Kwaku the Traveller” stays at No. 1 for second straight week

Black Sherif is now the non-Nigerian artiste with the most top ten entries

Black Sherif is everywhere right now and the mercurial Ghanaian doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon. His smash jam “Kwaku The Traveler” has retained the Turntables Charts top spot for the second week running. 

During that time it got up to 6.10 million equivalent streams (18% higher than last week) and with 34.3 million in radio reach, it was propelled from No. 43 to fourth place on the radio charts, a staggering 230% increase recorded. This means that every song that has debuted at No. 1 at TTC has enjoyed successive weeks at the top, with the exception of Davido and Nicki Minaj’s “Holy Ground”.

Asake’s “Sungba (Remix)” with Burna Boy goes one place higher, from No. 3 to No. 2. Going in opposite movements, Rema’s “Calm Down” occupies third spot. The record also leads the radio charts for the consecutive eight week, matching the year’s record run of Fireboy DML’s “Peru”. There are no changes from last week’s No. 4 to No. 8—in that order is Pheelz and BNXN’S “Finesse”, Skibii and Davido’s “Baddest Boy (Remix)”, Asake and Olamide’s “Omo Ope”, Fireboy DML’s “Playboy” and Darkoo with Black Sherif’s “Always”.

Completing the top ten is Black Sherif and Burna Boy’s “Second Sermon (Remix)”, peaking at No. 9 and Seyi Vibez’s “Billion Dollar” debuting at No. 10. Sherif’s song had 2.42 million in equivalent streams (No. 6 on streaming, up 60%), 4.06 million in radio reach (No. 109 on radio, down 34%) and 6.85 million in TV reach (No. 11 on TV, down 0.5%). As a result, Black Sherif joins Davido, Wizkid and Olamide as the only artists who have recorded at least 3 top ten entries in a week. In addition, Black Sherif is now the non-Nigerian artiste with the most top ten entries, surpassing Justin Bieber.

Seyi’s “Billion Dollar” is currently only available through streaming, and it tallied 2.56 million equivalent streams (No. 4 on streaming chart) to become the artist’s first top ten entry on the Top 50.
