Asake, the singer, is the most streamed Nigerian artiste on Spotify for 2023.


Spotify, on Wednesday, unveiled the 2023 edition of “Wrapped”, its annual recap of listeners’ musical choices.

At the top of the most streamed artistes is Asake, whose tracks Asake’s dominance ‘Lonely At The Top’, ‘2:30’ and ‘Amapiano’ similarly dominated the list of the most streamed tracks for the year.

Also prominent on Spotify for this year is Rema whose collaboration with Selena Gomez for ‘Calm Down’ became the first African-led single to reach a billion streams on the streamer.


The song, Spotify says, is the first by a Nigerian Afrobeats artist to feature on the top 10 chart of most streamed recordings globally on its streamer.

Rema and Asake have also cemented their positions as Afrobeats’ global ambassadors.

Spotify says Rema holds the title of the most globally exported artiste while Asake is captivating audiences across Nigeria, Ghana, and Togo, earning him the coveted title of most streamed artist in each country.


Mohbad secured a position in the top 20 list of the most streamed artistes in Nigeria, something that has been attributed to an increased interest in his music following his untimely death.

His track ‘Ask About Me’ was the top streamed track every day between the 13th and 25th of September.

Ant the top most streamed female artistes on Spotify for 2023 is Ayra Starr who clinched the title of the most streamed female artist in Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda.
