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

“Charm” tallied 76.5 million in radio airplay reach (No. 1 on radio) and 2.21 million streams (No. 3 on streaming). As a result, it returns to the summit of the Official Nigeria Top 100 for a second week at No. 1. It is Rema’s longest No. 1 song in Nigeria – surpassing the one-week span of “Won Da Mo” at the top.

Kizz Daniel’s “Shu-Peru” debuts at No. 2 on this week’s Official Nigeria Top 100 (making a larger than projected launch on the chart).

“Shu-Peru” tallied 2.13 million on-demand streams (No. 4 on streaming) and 61.6 million in radio reach (No. 8 on radio). It is Kizz Daniel’s third top ten entry on the singles chart in Nigeria – joining 4-week No. 1 “Gwagwalada” and No. 2-peaking “RTID.”

It is also the biggest debut on the New Music Friday of May 12, 2023 (the song’s performance was boosted by the premiere of its official video on the same day).

Asake’s “2:30” falls 1-3 on this week’s chart after spending four non-consecutive weeks at the top.

BNXN fka Buju’s “PRAY” rockets 95-4 on the Top 100. The song drew 2.31 million on-demand streams (No. 1 on streaming) and 50.2 million in radio reach (No. 12 on radio) during the tracking week of May 12 – 18 [it is important to note that the song was released on May 11, which meant that its first day numbers counted towards the tracking week of May 5 - 11]   

Davido’s “FEEL” slides to No. 5 from its No. 3 peak on the Top 100. For a second straight week, it holds the distinction of being the biggest song off ‘Timeless’ album in Nigeria.

Davido’s “UNAVAILABLE” with Musa Keys rebounds 7-6 after peaking at No. 2 on the chart while Zinoleesky’s “Many Things” dips 6-7.

Rounding out this week’s top ten; Adekunle Gold’s “Party No Dey Stop” with Zinoleesky drops 4-8; Victony’s “Soweto (Remix)” with Omah Lay & Tempoe retreats 5-9 while Young Jonn’s “Aquafina” is down to No. 10.

Outside of this week’s top ten; Lil Durk’s “All My Life” with J. Cole debuts at No. 11 on this week’s Top 100. It is the biggest debut for any non-African Hip-Hop in singles/aggregated chart history in Nigeria. The song tallied 2.29 million on-demand streams in its first week – good enough for a No. 2 debut on the streaming chart and 19.8 million in radio reach (No. 52 on radio)

Other new debuts include Bella Shmurda & Tiwa Savage’s “NSV” at No. 23; Teni’s “No Days Off” at No. 25 and Ruger’s “Jonzing Boy” at No. 28.
