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

“Gwagwalada” tallied 3.50 million on-demand streams (No. 1 on streaming) and 43.7 million in radio reach (No. 4 on radio). It equals the three-week reign of “Finesse” as BNXN’s second longest No. 1 song – and two weeks behind “Feeling.”

It is also Kizz Daniel’s fifth No. 1 entry in Nigeria – only behind Asake (7) as the artiste with the most No. 1 songs in the country. Seyi Vibez earns his first No. 1 song with “Gwagwalada.”

Omah Lay’s “soso” spends another week at its No. 2 peak while Rema’s “Holiday” returns to its No. 3 peak on the Nigeria Top 100.

Spyro’s “Who is Your Guy (Remix)” with Tiwa Savage ascends to a new peak of No. 4 on the Top 100; Tiwa Savage is now credited on the single as the remix contributes the largest share of the total chart points during the tracking week. This mark’s Spyro’s first top five entry and Tiwa Savage’s fifth top 10 entry in Nigeria.

The song tallied 49 million in radio reach (No. 1 on radio) and 1.77 million (No. 5 on streaming); also a new peak on both the radio and streaming charts. With “Who is Your Guy (Remix)” at No. 1 on the radio chart, Tiwa Savage becomes the first female artiste with multiple No. 1 radio hits.

Ayra Starr’s “Sability” slips to No. 5 after debuting and spending one week at No. 1. Libianca’s “People (Remix)” with Ayra Starr & Omah Lay rockets into the top ten for the first time; it tallied 48.2 million in radio reach (No. 2 on radio) and 1.38 million in radio reach (No. 7 on streaming).

“People (Remix)” is Libianca’s first top ten entry in Nigeria while Ayra Starr logs her ninth (most for any female artiste) and twelfth for Omah Lay.

Rounding out this week’s top ten; Ruger’s “Asiwaju” retreats to No. 7, Khaid’s “Jolie” drops to No. 8 while Rexxie’s “Abracadabra (Remix)” dips to No. 9. Kizz Daniel’s “RTID” completes the top ten this week.
