Fireboy has now become one of the few Nigerian artists to have hit 10 million monthly listeners on Spotify.
Last year CKay’s big hit, Love Nwantiti, amassed over 30 million monthly listeners on the app.
Also, Nigeria’s global music sensation has beaten Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want for Christmas’ to the top spot on the UK’s Apple music chart with his Peru remix and is now set to crack the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Fireboy and Ed Sheeran’s collaboration has been positively received by fans all over the world, who appear to enjoy Sheeran’s innovation in reworking Fireboy’s already popular single.
The song is now at numbers two and three on different UK Official Charts, but if it reaches number one, it will be the first afrobeat record to achieve such feat.
