Chart rankings on the Official Nigeria Top 100 are based on weighted formula incorporating audio and video streams within Nigeria, as well as airplay on radio and satellite TV in the country. It is the first and only standard music chart in Nigeria, providing comprehensive music activity including the official No. 1 song in Nigeria

“RTID” debuts at No. 2 on this week’s Nigeria Top 100 – the highest debut on this week’s chart. This continues Kizz Daniel’s run of form that extends as far back as August 2021. Since “Lie” debuted at No. 1 on the defunct TurnTable Top 50 in August 2021, the artiste has further sent an extra seven songs in the top ten including three No. 1 singles.

“Pour Me Water,“ and “Eh God (Barnabas)” followed with the arrival of 2021 EP, Barnabas. The former peaked at No. 1 on the Top 50 while the latter peaked at No. 3. “Oshe” featuring The Cavemen also peaked at No. 9 on the Top 50 (albeit much later in 2022 following the arrival of its music video).

The artiste has been somewhat quiet with guest turns with “No Wahala (Remix)” the only top ten entry as a featured artiste so far. However, the artiste has continued to record massive hits as a lead artiste including two back-to-back No. 1 singles; “Buga (Lo Lo Lo)” with Tekno and “Cough (ODO)” with EMPIRE led for seven weeks and four weeks respectively in 2022.

With four No. 1s out of eight top 10 – including both a No. 2 debut and a No. 3 peaking song, Kizz Daniel has proved himself to be one of Nigeria most bankable stars in the last two years.
