Turntable Top 50: Kizz Daniel holds steady at No.1 with “Lie”

Kizz Daniel stays at number one!

In a show of his staying power, “Lie,” the comeback single by Kizz Daniel, has maintained the number one position on the Turntable Charts Top 50 songs, becoming only the third song after Teni’s “FOR YOU” and Burna Boy’s “Kilometre” to spend their first two weeks atop the chart. 

“Lie” tallied 51.8 million in radio reach and 2.5 million equivalent streams. Impressively, “Lie’s” second week on the chart still ranks as one of the biggest yet for any song, even surpassing the total chart points recorded by the song in its first week. 

Omah Lay’s “Understand” remains at number two after three non-consecutive weeks in the spot,  getting 1.71 million equivalent streams, 52.4 million in radio reach, and 12.2 million in TV reach while topping both the radio and TV charts this week. In the process “Understand” becomes only the fifth song ever to reach No. 1 on all four major charts published by TurnTable ChartsTop 50. 

Wizkid’s Tems-featuring summer hit, “Essence,” moves from number 15 to 3 after its remix with Justin Bieber. “Essence (Remix)” tallied 1.70 million equivalent streams, 50 million in radio reach, and 4.1 million in TV reach, recording its biggest week on the TurnTable Top 50 Chart. For this week’s chart, the chart points for both the remix and original version of the song count towards a single chart entry (the remix),  giving Justin Bieber his third top ten entry and highest-charting entry yet in Nigeria.

Adekunle Gold’s “Sinner” holds at number four after peaking at number three while YBNL signee, Fireboy’ DML’s, “Peru” continues to ascend on the chart, moving from number six to five. Ladipoe and Buju’s “Feeling” slides from number three to six and is followed at number seven by Ruger’s “Bounce.”

Rounding out this week’s top ten of the Top 50: Olamide’s “Rock” drops one position from number seven to eight and Patoranking’s “Celebrate Me” is steady at number nine while AV’s “Big Thugs Boys” falls five places from number five to ten. 

Just outside this week’s top ten, Ayra Starr’s “Bloody Samaritan,” off her debut album 19 & Dangerous’ soars from number 28 to a new peak of number 12 while Oxlade’s “Ojuju” debuts at number 13 in its first full week of tracking.
