The song also leads the Top Streaming Chart for a fourth non-consecutive week and moves to a new peak of No. 8 on Top Airplay Chart.
3.) Olamide featuring Bella Shmurda - Triumphant
Olamide’s 'Triumphant' Bella Shmurda jumps to No. 3 on the Top 50 after it entered at No. 17 on the last chart. It moves to No. 2 on Streaming Chart (1.95 million equivalent streams, up 30.87%), jumps 34-12 on Airplay Chart (20.39 million, up 81.56%) and debuts at No. 27 on TV Songs Chart (5.04 million).
Both “Infinity” and “Triumphant” are from Olamide’s eleventh studio album, Carpe Diem, and feature two of the artistes tipped for the Next Rated Awards at the Headies.
4.) Wizkid featuring Burna Boy - Ginger
Last week's No. 1 song falls to No. 4 on the Top 50. It also drops to No. 3 on Top Streaming Chart (1.64 million, down 50.15%) and moves 11-4 on Top Airplay Chart (29.76 million, up 24.5%).
5.) Patoranking - Abule
Patoranking’s 'Abule' moves 8-5 on the Top 50 and ranks in the top ten of Top Airplay Chart for a 12th week (only Rema’s “Woman” has spent longer in the region with 14 weeks).
6.) Cheque - Zoom
It's not everyday that a Trap/Emo track becomes a hit in Nigeria, but this song is still waxing strong. After it dropped off Cheque's debut EP, 'Razor,' it enjoyed a lukewarm reception but after its video dropped, it soared up the charts.
7.) Bella Shmurda featuring Zlatan and Lincoln - Cash App
The song might be premised upon the counter-culture of 'yahoo yahoo,' but the music is alluring enough to form a dalliance with the Nigerian heart. The song also further ties into how pop culture continues to promote Square's product of the same name. Jack Dorsey would be proud.
8.) Tems - Damages

9.) Wizkid - No Stress
Well, Wizkid admires a woman with no stress and his album, Made In Lagos was said to reflect that reality. His song might have had a tumble from No. 4 to No. 9 on this week's chart, but the times look great for Baba Bolu.
