Burna Boy becomes first African artist to reach 200 million streams on Boomplay
Nigerian Grammy-award winner Burna Boy continues to break historical charts. This time, as the first-ever African artiste to hit 200 million streams on the music streaming platform, Boomplay.
Boomplay streams are calculated based on industry-recognized standards in which only no less than thirty-second stream is equal to one stream count. Barely a year after Burna Boy was celebrated as the first artiste to hit the 100 million streams milestone on Boomplay, he has gone ahead to double the feat, making him the first artiste to be streamed 200 million times on the streaming service, Boomplay.
The growth of the Grammy Award winner has been exponentially upturned since the release of the Outside album, which stands as 10 million streams currently. His follow up album, African Giant, which was critically acclaimed and nominated for the Grammys, now has over 43 million streams, four times more than the previous body of work, indicating his broadening fanbase and growth. True to its title, his 2020 album Twice As Tall has been streamed twice more than African Giant, standing at over 80 million streams on Boomplay.
