Turntable Top 50: Omah Lay continues to dominate the Nigerian charts

Omah Lay rules the charts

Currently holding the record for most consecutive weeks at number 1 – where his hit single, “Godly” spent 11 weeks – Omah Lay continues to dominate the Turntable Top 50. The artist’s latest chart-topping single, “Understand” has now spent a third week at No.1.

This week, “Understand” tallied 48.7 million in radio reach, a 6% drop, going up 27% online with 2.03 million equivalent streams during this charting week. Launching with 529,000 in television reach, as “Understand” maintains its spot at number, Omah Lay can proudly say that all his number one appearances have spent at least 3 weeks at the top. A remarkable feat for the Popstar who makes number 1 hits look like child’s play.

Last week earning his first top-five entry, Adekunle Gold’s “Sinner” moves even higher on the charts, sliding from positions 4 to 2. This follows an 8% uptick in radio reach (36.3 million) and a whopping 121% increase in TV reach, counting 9.43 million in TV airplay this week. Adekunle Gold’s highest charting single, “Sinner” is tailed by Ladipoe’s “Feeling” and Olamide’s “Rock” in positions 3 and 4 respectively.

Closing out the top five for this week is Ruger’s “Bounce”, which re-enters the top five after a week-long stint position six last week. As AV‘s “Big Thug Boys” slides down one place to position 6, “Celebrate Me” by Patoranking earns a new peak at number 7. Similarly, Fireboy’s “Peru” reaches new heights at 8, rising two spots from its position at 10 last week.

It looks like Rema’s “Soundgasm” is slowly inching out of the top ten. “Soundgasm” sinks from 8 to 9 this week, ahead of “Monalisa” – off Sarz and Lojay’s joint project, ‘LV N ATTN’ – which rounds off this week’s top ten. “Monalisa”‘s debut entry into the top ten of Turntable’s Top 50 charts marks the fifth song Sony Music West Africa and UK have made entries into the top ten without any Audiomack streams.

Considering how influential Audiomack is in the streaming space in Nigeria, it is very impressive that Ruger’s “Bounce”, JAE5’s “Dimensions”, “Rotate” by Burna Boy and Becky G, and “Monalisa” all made entries into the top ten. Most especially formidable is Gyakie’s “Forever (Remix)” spending three weeks at number one, without any Audiomack streams.
