Can you compare the internet penetration in America and Europe with Africa?

How many Nigerians or Africans stream on YouTube?

Sinach is popular as any global gospel musician in the world, and waymaker was sang in every corner of the world with different versions here and there.

Yet it did not get to 200 million views.

The problem is not the artist or the quality of the music.

Their primary market which is Africa, does not have a deep internet penetration.

Compare that to Hillsong of Australia.

Any average song from Hillsong gets to 200 million in a month or so.


Oga keep quiet about your stupid internet penetration excuse.

If your Naija artistes are know worldwide, then the countries with high internet will view their videos.

If Naija's internet penetration rate affects your views, that means you are not global. You are national.

YouTube is one of the primary ways people outside the shores of Nigeria connect to Nigerian music videos. It is also an indication of how big a song is accepted or known internationally. As we come to the end of the year, we will examine the Top 10 most viewed Nigerian Music videos on YouTube.
Three (3) crooners, Burna Boy, Davido and Ckay, dominate the list with two songs each. The list also features gospel music by Sinach. Based on the total accumulation of views for a particular song from all channels with copyrights, Ckay's Love Nwantiti will be Number 1 with about a billion views but we base this assessment on one video (track) alone.

These Nigerian songs are currently in the top 10 list of all time as of 31st of December 2021.

1. Burna Boy - On The Low [242 million] Publ on Nov 16, 2018

2. Davido - Fall [227 million views] Publ on Jun 2, 2017

3 Sinach - Way Maker [189 million] Publ on Dec 31, 2015

4. Ckay ft Joeboy & Kuami Eugene - Love Nwantiti [174 million] Publ on Feb 14, 2020

5. Burna Boy - Ye [171 million] Publ on Aug 6, 2018

6. Tekno - Pana [170 million] Publ on Aug 22, 2016

7. Wizkid - Joro [168 million] Publ on Sep 30, 2019

8. Ckay - Love Nwantiti (Acoustic) [144 million] Publ on March 10, 2020

9. Davido - If [142 million] Publ on Feb 17, 2017

10. Yemi Alade - Johnny [140 million] Publ on Mar 3, 2014

*Compiled on December 31st, 2021.

Brother, I think your understanding of these is very limited. Nigerians do not make up 1% of those streams you are looking at. Many African countries do not even have a song with over 50 million views.

Again, Americans, Europeans and Asians use a lot od streaming channels, the internet is cheap, filesharig is rare and free downloads are not as patronised as in Africa. Most of their musicians have international record distributuíons, international star powers, language, funding, talent, the strong tradition behind them.

These numbers are incredible under the conditions Nigerian musicians are subject to... In fact, you actually need to move to Europe, Asia and America to understand how big Nigerian music is right now.

This is a gradual process. There was a time when the highest streamed Nigerian song was Psquare songs at 50 million and that was even incredible.

I know we are very critical or even condescending towards our own thing...but you see that Music? that is one of the positive things about Nigerians especially when you go abroad. In gyms, shopping malls, everywhere.

I'm talking about Naija artistes being small globally. If they are well-known abroad as they claim, why aren't the foreigners viewing their videos like they do to their Biebers, Sheerans and co??

Those “Biebers, Sheerans and co” are also well-known here.
Has that made Nigerians listen to them more than our own artists?
Does their music top the charts in Nigeria?

Anyone who thinks for a few seconds will understand that people will still have a natural inclination to music from their own region even if they value that of other regions.

Did any of them claim to be the greatest artist in the world?
Out of 1.2 billion Africans plus other countries you're getting 242 million views in a year,that's below average. Arianna Granade will get that in less than a week and he claims to be bigger than her grin

Clown.

The biggest viewers of Ed Sheeran are in the United Kingdom.

His fame is a product of British influence and by extension, western Bloc of nations, which happens to be the most industrialised nations.

Burna boy is a Grammy winner. That is as global as they come.

If he was from the UK, he would be pulling billions in streams.

A man that sings in Yoruba like burna boy certainly is not counting on the UK as his first target market.

The fact that they are even known to this extent is a product of their hard-work and marketing.

Ed Sheeran did not need to put in as much effort to become a global star.

With talent, his nationality will do the rest of the work for him.

You really have a low IQ.
Can you name how many musician in the world, have 1 billion view everytime they release a song? And how many songs do they have that crossed this numbers? When were they released? Do you know Kanye West do not have a single song above 700 million?

Beyonce's only song above a billion is "Hallo"
Jay-Z, do not have a song above 1 billion.
Kendrick Lamar do not have a billion views
Jay Cole do not have a billion view
Dababy, Popsmoke, Usher, Lil Nas X, Lil Wayne do not have a track with a billion views
Even Chris Brown that was hot for years only got one song that just crossed 1 billion.
Afrobeat or Nigerian music is a genre with a growing but, limited loyal listenership.

Afrobeat is not Pop Rap, Pop, Alternative pop Rock, Latino Pop or blues where the likes of Adele, Justin Bieber, Maroon 5, Dua Lipa, Shakira, Pitbull etc dominate or people with white cult or decade of international followership like Eminem and Drake.

All these artistes are well above 200m.
You claim to be global yet your highest is 200m and that's even a one-off. Your average is around 10m.

If your artistes are global, shouldn't the same UK billion viewers for Ed Sheeran give them same billion views?

If they didn't, that simply means he is unknown to them and not global.

Ckay will be number 1 by end of February 2022. Goya Menor and Fireboy DML are coming with a bang too
Ckay should have been No 1 by now, but him and his management are not policing the illegal and legal publishing of his tracks well.... There are just too many uploads of his song. There are more than 5 with 40 million views already.
Maybe it is strategic or the kind of publishing or copyright agreement they made for the track.
However, YouTube music did gross the total views from youtube music and it has garnered about 1 billion streams.

What the likes of Ed Sheeran, and co enjoys due to nationality, Nigerian artists enjoy same to a certain level.

In Africa, Nigerian artists just need to be talented, with little effort, and the Nigerian advantage will do the rest.

It's frustrating to many african countries with equally talented artistes, doing even more work but failing to hit the fame.

Fireboy that started yesterday, is more popular than any artiste from Ghana

That kind of thing will always bring bad belle from them.
