With a global tour underway and arguably one of the biggest songs rocking major cities, Kizz Daniel is having an impressive year. He records another artistic landmark as the first artist to hit 300 million total streams on Boomplay, making him the current most streamed artist on the platform.
Leading the way in those streams includes some of Kizz Daniel’s most acclaimed projects, such as “Barnabas” EP with 133.5 million streams, “King of Love” with 39M streams, ‘No Bad Songz‘ with 22.1M streams, and his most streamed single “1” at 82 million streams.
Having recorded mainstream success with “Buga” featuring Tekno, which has also been largely described as a masterstroke, the single continues to enjoy massive reception. Buga was reported to have accumulated 1 million streams within 24 hours of release on Boomplay and has since retained the top spot in countries such as Nigeria, Ghana, Cameroon, Zimbabwe, Togo, Zambia, DRC, Benin, and Sierra Leone.
Furthering recent milestone announcements from Boomplay, Kizz Daniel’s 300 million streaming feat also signals astronomical growth levels in the music industry regarding music consumption and streaming culture. Earlier in April 2022, Boomplay announced that Kizz Daniel became the first artist to hit 100,000,000 project-based streams in less than six months with his fourth studio project “Barnabas EP.”
With this feat, Kizz Daniel becomes the leader of Boomplay’s Golden Club which also houses Burna Boy, Fireboy, Joeboy, Omah Lay, Rayvanny, Diamond Platnumz, Davido, Wizkid, Olamide, Naira Marley, Ruger, Black Sherif, and Simi.
Finally, as Afrobeats continues to relish democratized access and resounding applause on the global stage, Boomplay’s prominence in music streaming and amplifying homegrown talents will see to an iteration of its global dominance.
