TurnTable Top 50: Gyakie and Omah Lay’s “Forever” returns to #1 this week

Gyakie and Omah Lay steal the show once again

Gyakie’s “Forever (Remix)” featuring Omah Lay is back at No. 1 on the TurnTable Top 50 for a third week atop the chart since its release. It tallied 38.15 million in radio reach (essentially week-over-week) for a third week at No. 1 on the radio chart, posted 9.76 million in TV reach ( up 11.67%) and 413,000 equivalent streams (down 8.63%).

Interestingly, “Forever (Remix)” is the first song to reach No. 1 on the TurnTable Top 50 without getting any streams from Audiomack (which accounts for the largest percentage of the streaming chart). The song has been made unavailable in Nigeria on Audiomack for the last three weeks showing just how many listeners around the country have been tuned into the Fresh Meat alum who is making waves across West Africa.

Peruzzi’s “Somebody Baby” featuring Davido moves to No. 2 on the Top 50 and is the singer’s first top 3 entry on the chart as a lead artist and his second as a songwriter having being credited on Davido’s former No. 1 with Nicki Minaj, “Holy Ground”. The song is followed by Wizkid’s “Essence” featuring Tems which rockets to No. 3 and becomes the fourth top 5 song off the singer’s magnum opus, ‘Made in Lagos’. This is also Tems’ highest-charting single in TurnTable Top 50 history, surpassing the No. 6 peak of “Damages”. Following this is Dj Kaywise & Phyno’s “High Way” and former seven-week No. 1, Teni’s “FOR YOU” featuring Davido rounds up the top five this week at No. 4 and No. 5 respectively. 

Also in the Top 10 this week is Dangbana Republik & Bella Shmurda’s “World” which is at No.6 and is closely followed by Ice Prince’s “KOLO” featuring Oxlade which hits a new peak at No.7. Next is Chike’s “Running (To You)” with Simi which falls at No.8 this week on the chart, followed by Ajebo Hustlers’ “Pronto” featuring Omah Lay returns to the top ten at No. 9. Rema’s “Bounce” moves from its No.4 spot from the previous week to No.10 this week and rounds up the TurnTable Top 10 songs.

Elsewhere in the charts, we have CKay’s “Felony” which falls at No.14 this week, and Fireboy DML and Cheque’s new single History which follows closely behind at No.16. Naira Marley’s “Coming” has also moved down a few spots this week, going from its No.4 peak last week to No.19 this week. Blaqbonez who is set to release his debut album ‘Sex Over Love’ this weekend also has an entry on the Top 50 this week as his project’s lead single “Bling” features at No.26 following the release of its recently released TG-Omori-directed video.
