Lalasticlala, Mynd44, airmax, nex, ijebabe. I believe this is front-page material. Nigerian music and Afrobeat is shaking the world in a positive way.

You can call it a streaming app too but the main selling point is that it is an app used to recognize or get the name of a song and the lyrics. Let us take for instance, you heard a song on the radio but you do not know the artiste or title or lyrics to the song, all you need to do is to play a snippet or record a section of the song or type in the sections of the lyrics and it will find the full song for you plus the lyrics to the song.

The app has been quite popular for a while even before apple bought the company.

Ckay - Love Nwantiti

This is the biggest song ever to come out of Nigeria.

But because Ckay is an Igbo artiste, this will not give him any credibility within Nigeria. The media will try their best to obscure him, listeners will look away from him and hype men and OAPs will disregard him.

Until equality and equity are part of the discussion. Chinwetalu Agu will continue to be a role model to millions of people unfairly discriminated and denied success just because of their ethnic origin and identity.

If it was actually the biggest export from Nigeria why would people need Shazam to try and know track name and artist, Wizkid remains the biggest export from Nigeria, baba is about to be win another Grammy come next year and luckily bag about 7 to 10 Grammy Nomination for MIL

Not to argue the point whether he is the biggest export or not or to compare.

This is not how Shazam works. Look at the top 10 and the top 10 songs, you will see that these features some of the biggest artists in the world.
from Elton John to Adele to Lil Nas X etc

Sometimes people hear a song on the radio and can't tell the artist immediately and sometimes need to know the exact lyrics. Sometimes, they do not know the song at all.. or sometimes the language. Shazam is international, there are a lot of people in the world who do not understand words.

Even WizKid's Essence is in the top 200 of this chat.

I believe what made this particular song popular is Tiktok.. it is quite big on tiktok recently and there is an international distributor in Warner music, partnering with the artiste.

A version of the song, is nearing 80 million and another version, more than 60 million stream on YouTube. These streams happened within the past 2 weeks although the actual song was released last year.

There are also different versions of the song, from North African to Spanish to Nigerian.

TikTok and international distributors have a way of making music viral again.

it's actually very popular. It is used to identify any music playing around you. maybe on radio for example.

Maybe if OP didn't put his real name, they would have taken it to the front page?

Well, this is why it is important to have media control in the hands of your peope. If you have such powers, support eachother and promote your culture by yourself, you will achieve those collective goal.

Chinua Achebe once said, "There is that great proverb — that until the lions have their own historians, the history of the hunt will always glorify the hunter."

If it were a negative story, it would probably hit the front page immediately.

Wizkid is great, but do you know that Ckay's 3 versions of "love Nwantiti" have more views on youtube than all the views on MIL combined? Including Essence? By the end of this year, he will surpass Wizkid's highest viewed song on YouTube if you consider the pace.
Wizkid is great and I will not like to compare them both or say Ckay is the absolute best in Nigeria but currently, his song is the hottest Nigerian song on the international scene.

Clay's love Nwantiti has got 100 million views on YouTube.
and his acoustic version is over 83 million and would hit 100 million views soon.

There are not up to 15 songs from Nigeria to hit this target in the history of YouTube.

CC: lalasticlala I believe this deserves a front page position.
