D'banj Was The First Nigerian Artist To Be Featured On The Billboard Charts by martinkem(m): 10:43am On Apr 08, 2016
This is one of those unpopular posts that kinda earns one the "Hater tag" but I'm not trying to shit on Wizkid but rather trying to clarify the misinformation about Wizkid being the first Nigerian artist to be featured on a Billboard Chart.

The Billboard is a organization popularly known for its music charts such as the Hot 100 singles chart and the Billboard 200 albums charts. Besides those two well known charts, the Billboard also has a large number of charts such as the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop songs, The Billboard Twitter Last 24 hours chart (which Wizkid was featured on courtesy his collaboration with Drake), the Official UK Singles Chart among others, which it monitors and publishes.

For the sake of correctness, it would be right to say that D'Banj, who had a top 10 single (Oliver Twist at number 9) on the Billboard UK Official Singles Chart in 2012, is the first Nigerian to chart on a Billboard chart considering date (2012 which is 4 years old). Don't take my word for it here's a screenshot and a link to check it out yourself.

I'm pretty sure that if one really checks the Billboard there might be more Nigerian artists who have singles that have been charted on the Billboard music charts.

Since most of the news and information we get nowadays are from bloggers, we are bound to get misinformed almost always.

I'm sure the blogger is sponsored by Wizkid himself.

Since his beef with Linda, the kid been doing about anything to show off what he's achieved.
