Ruger's Asiwaju made an appearance in the fourth spot, followed by Omah Lay's soso in fifth, Ayra Starr's Rush in sixth and Fireboy DML and Asake's Bandana in seventh.

Davido's Grammy-nominated UNAVAILABLE occupied the eight spot, with Burna Boy's smash hit, Last Last, and Asake's Terminator making it a Nigerian home-run in Ghana.

Afrobeats' expanding influence wasn't limited to Ghana according to Apple Music's charts, but extended to Kenya whose top 10 was also dominated by Afrobeats songs.

Soweto, Rush, Last Last, soso, Bandana and Asiwaju were the top six songs on the chart. The final four songs on the chart are Ta Ta Ta by Bayanni, KU LO SA by Oxlade and Camila Cabello, Charm by Rema, and People by Libianca.

Globally, the remix of Rema's smash hit, Calm Down, featuring Selena Gomez, was the 12th most streamed song, the highest entry ever for an African song.
