Burna Boy, Mercy Chinwo, Others Top 2022 Boomplay Nigeria Most Streamed Artistes

by Oluwamuyiwa Oyedele

Afrobeats superstar Burna Boy has been named Boomplay Nigeria’s most streamed male artist for 2022.

Following a similar disclosure by Spotify Nigeria, whose year-end report similarly found that the singer ended 2022 as the nation’s most streamed artist, the digital service provider made the announcement via its Recap report.

The Grammy winner is followed on Boomplay by Asake and Kizz Daniel. The numbers show a 248% surge in streaming on Boomplay for the year, supported by the platform’s 88 million monthly active users and catalog of more than 90 million songs.

Ayra Starr, Mercy Chinwo and Simi emerged as the most streamed female artists of 2022, while the Top Booming category, spotlighting the fastest-rising stars of the year, include Asake, Young Jonn and Lade.

Boomplay says it provides an accurate snapshot of music consumption in Africa by profiling and segmenting music data by country, artists and users.
