Omah Lay leads the chart for a record-extending fifth week.

‘Bad Influence’ records 1.17 equivalent streams to remain at the top of the chart for the fifth week in a row. This is the lowest equivalent streams the song has recorded in a week.

Patoranking’s “Abule” hits a new peak moving 4-3 on the chart.

Let’s rundown the top ten of the Top Streaming Chart, which blends the weekly streaming numbers of songs on the three major freemium streaming platform in the country. The full chart dated August 18, 2020 was revealed yesterday.

TurnTable Charts employs a point per play value system for factoring streams from Audiomack, Boomplay and YouTube NG into the chart; full point per value is employed for Boomplay and YouTube NG streams, 4/5 point per value of total streams from Audiomack is used in the ranking of all songs by Nigerian artistes, and a tier-system point per value for songs by artistes from other African countries.

Omah Lay’s ‘Bad Influence’ has led the chart for five consecutive weeks posting at least 1 million equivalent streams in every week of the chart; the song posts 1.17 million equivalent streams to stay at the top.


For a second week, Omah Lay ranks at No. 1 and No. 2 with “You” holding at its No. 2 peak. The song recorded 939,055 equivalent streams from Audiomack, Boomplay and YouTube during the tracking week.

Patoranking’s “Abule” records 902,850 equivalent streams to move one rank into a new peak. This comes a week after making the biggest jump in chart history. Another Patoranking chart appearance moves to a new peak with Victor AD’s “Prayer Request” moving 13-11.

Mayorkun’s “Betty Butter” slides 3-4 after peaking at No. 1 on the first issue of Top Streaming Chart with 844,763 equivalent streams. Zinoleesy’s “Mapariwo” completes the top five with 788,000 equivalent streams. Omah Lay’s “Lo Lo” and Rema’s “Woman” hold at No. 6 and No. 7 respectively for another week.


Burna Boy’s “Wonderful” rises four spots to No. 8 with 666,776 equivalent streams after peaking at No. 7 on the chart dated July 14, 2020. The song is expected to rise following the release of Burna Boy’s Twice as Tall, with “Wonderful” potentially going No. 1 on the chart next week.

Rounding out the top ten is Omah Lay’s “Damn” which falls one rank to No. 9; while Naira Marley’s “As E Dey Go” holds at No. 10 after peaking at No. 4.

Outside the top ten is two debuts in Tiwa Savage's "Koroba" at No. 14 with 562,625 equivalent streams and Cardi B's "WAP" featuring Megan Thee Stallion at No. 18 with 483,551 equivalent streams. The first-week debut of "WAP" is even more impressive as only numbers from YouTube and Boomplay are factored into its chart ranking.

Other songs that have debuted on the chart with only weekly sum from YouTube and Boomplay include Sam Smith's "My Oasis" featuring Burna Boy, which debuted at No. 29 on the chart dated August 11, 2020; and Wizkid's "Smile" featuring H.E.R, which debuted at No. 43 on the chart dated July 29, 2020.
