• FEM was the most viewed music video in Nigeria last week and it was only out for 5 hours

Written by: Ayomide , Oriowo

Davido’s “FEM” 178,000 views in 5 hours was enough to make it No. 1 video on YouTube NG last week.

Davido’s “FEM” shot up to the top of trending list on social media on the evening of September 10.

But it was on YouTube that the popularity of “FEM” showed the most. It was released at 7pm Nigerian time on Thursday, meaning it was only available for 5 hours out of the 7-day tracking period; TurnTable Charts/YouTube employs a Friday-Thursday 7-day period for its tracking week.

The music video recorded 178,000 views and that was enough to beat No. 2 video, Dj Khaled’s “POPSTAR” featuring Drake (and starring arguably the biggest popstar in Justin Bieber) and No. 3 video, Patoranking’s “Abule.”
