Music star, Wizkid’s song Essence has become the first Nigerian song to hit the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
The song recently rose to No. 72 after the song which features another Nigerian singer Tems cracked the Billboard Bubbling Under Charts for the first time.
This is a good development for Wizkid and Tems who happens to be signed under same record label and for African music.
However, this isn’t Wizkid’s first time on the Hot 100 chart.
He got into the chart via his features on Drake’s ‘One Dance’ which hit No. 1 in 2016 and Beyonce’s ‘Brown Skin Girl’ which was at #76 in 2019.
For Tems, this marks her first appearance as her launch gathers heat.
