See How Tiwa Savage, Patoranking, Fireboy and Adekunle Gold’s Albums Performed in Their First Week

Between August 14, 2020 and August 28, 2020, Nigerian artists, Burna Boy [‘Twice As Tall,’ Aug. 14], Fireboy [‘Apollo’ Aug. 20], Adekunle Gold [‘Afro-pop Vol. 1’ Aug. 21], Tiwa Savage [‘Celia’ Aug. 28] and Patoranking [‘Three’ Aug. 28] released their respective albums.

As Pulse Nigeria and with the aid of Nigeria’s foremost charting platform, PopNaija Charts, we have decided to analyse the first week numbers of these Nigerian artists across Audiomack, YouTube, iTunes and Boomplay. This analysis will also examine the highest charting positions of songs on those albums on Apple Music and iTunes.

That 14-day period was one of the busiest weeks in Nigerian music over the course of 2020. Burna Boy‘s Twice As Tall has been left off this analysis because his numbers are an outlier.

Shazam and positions of songs off those albums on TurnTable Charts’s Airplay Charts will also be considered.

Here is a breakdown of the numbers;


AlbumBoomplay numbers
Apollo3.5M – 997k = 2.503 million streams (999k from first-day of release [Apollo was released on Thursday]
Afro Pop Vol 1753k + 90k from clean version = 843k streams
