With his recent single ‘Lies’ Kizz Daniel achieves his first No. 1 on the turntable top 50 charts.
The TurnTable Top 50 is the music industry standard record chart in Nigeria for songs, published weekly by TurnTable magazine.
Chart rankings are based on sales (physical and digital), radio play, and online streaming in Nigeria. The first issue of the chart was launched on Monday, November 9, 2020.
A new chart is compiled and officially released to the public by TurnTable on Wednesdays.
Kizz Daniel‘s third studio album, “King of Love,” was released last summer, and it served as a reminder of his exceptional ability to weave love themes into breezy Afropop tunes.
Kizz Daniel‘s new track “Lie” has made quite a stir for the Pop musician after making quite an impression this year.
Quickly proving its preeminence amongst Kizz Daniel’s other records this year, in its first week on the Turntable charts, “Lie” amassed 2.24 million equivalent streams and an even more impressive 55.8 million airplay impressions.
With the third biggest debut week in Turntable Top 50 history (behind “Rock” and “Understand”), Kizz Daniel’s debut at number one with “Lie” marks the artist’s first-ever chart-topping entry.

Positions 4 and 5 are made up of “Sinner” by Adekunle Gold, which slid down from 2 to 4, and AV’s “Big Thug Boys”, on the up, from 6 to 5, this week.
Last week, Fireboy DML recorded a two-place jump, with his latest single, “Peru” rising from 10 to 8.
