Nigerian music star, Wizkid is the first African artiste to hit 8 million (eight million) monthly listeners on Spotify.

If you could recall, Wizkid has over 6 million listeners on the digital music platform, a few weeks ago, which made him the most-streamed African artiste on the platform.

However, after the release of hit songs such as “I like”, “Dis Love” and Kojo Funds, his number of listeners skyrocketed to 8 million listeners monthly.
