It has been a great summer for Nigerian artists on Spotify, as the last three months shows that music lovers from all over the country chose to listen to songs by local artists during the season.

Fourth on the Top 10 list is WizKid’s “Essence” (feat.Justin Bieber & Tems), followed by “Soundgasm” by Rema, and “Understand” by Omah Lay.

“Nigerians’ support of homegrown talent has always been a joy to behold. It’s great to see that theme persevere and show up strong this summer!” says Phiona Okumu, Spotify Head of Music, Sub-Saharan Africa.

The only non-Nigerian song in the Top 10 list is “Dimension” by JAE5, the British-born Ghanaian Grammy Award-winning producer. The track which features SkeptaRema came in at seven. Next on the list is “Outside” by Buju, followed by Wizkidand Burna Boy’s “Ginger”, and “Monalisa” by Lojay.
