TurnTable Top 50: Reekado Banks “Ozumba Mbadiwe” leaps into the top ten

Joeboy is still at No. 1

Just in time for the end of year festivities set to take over the country very soon, Reekado Banks has a hit single on his hands. Released a few weeks back, “Ozumba Mbadiwe” debuted to enthusiastic reactions from listeners, and its potential staying power is reflected on the charts this week.

After debuting at the 18th spot in last week’s edition of the TurnTable Top 50, the P.Priime-produced, Amapiano-infused bop has jumped ten places to the No.8 spot in this week’s chart, giving the ever-capable Nigerian hit-maker his first top ten entry on the Top 50.

Reekado Banks recently dropped ‘Off the Record II’, his second EP in two years, as well as the accompanying set of visuals for “Ozumba Mbadiwe.” These new updates will undoubtedly push the song up the charts in the coming editions, and perhaps challenge Joeboy’s “Sip (Alcohol)” for the top spot. For now, though, the Empawa singer’s latest smash has extended its number one run on the Top 50 to six consecutive weeks. While the activity for the Tempoe-produced fan-favourite was down across streaming, radio and TV, “Sip” still led streaming and TV charts for the week in review.

The rest of this weeks top five remains unchanged for the previous edition of the charts, with Adekunle Gold and Davido’s party-starting “High” staying at number two, Ayra Starr’s self-affirmation anthem “Bloody Samaritan” in the third position, Timaya’s Buju-assisted bop “Cold Outside” at number four, and Fireboy DML’s euphonious banger “Peru” remaining in the fifth spot for its sixteenth week. Following the recent release of his EP, Providence’, Ladipoe’s “Running” stays at number six, while Zlatan’s “Ale Yi” jumps back to its peak position at number seven, after dropping his sophomore LP, Resan. Making a similar 10-position leap, Wande Coal’s “Come My Way” is at the ninth spot for this week. Rounding out this week’s top ten is Lojay and Sarz’ “Monalisa,” falling one place from its previous position.
