Asake Is Spotify Nigeria’s Most Streamed Artist Of 2023

Data provided by Spotify on Wednesday, November 29, 2023, has revealed the surprising fact that Nigerian sensation Ahmed Ololade, better known by his stage name Asake, is the most streamed artist of 2023.

As evidence of Asake’s supremacy, three of his songs were included in the coveted top 10 list of Nigeria’s most streamed songs on Spotify. His smash hit “Lonely at the Top” led the way and took the top spot. “2:30” came in fourth, and “Amapiano,” an Olamide collaboration, came in tenth.

Asake’s success was captured in the Spotify Wrapped for Nigeria 2023, which put him at the top of the list. The much-lauded Burna Boy took second place, closely followed by Davido in third. The remaining nine artists on the list—Seyi Vibez, Omah Lay, BNXN, Rema, Odumodublvck, Olamide, and Wizkid—all contributed to the dynamic musical environment of the nation.

Beyond Nigeria, Asake’s impact was seen in Togo and Ghana, where he also held the record for being the most streamed artist. This outstanding accomplishment confirms Asake’s standing as a major musical influence in Africa and beyond. As his chart-topping popularity continues to wow audiences throughout the continent, both music enthusiasts and industry insiders are anxious to see what the future holds for this emerging sensation.
