Twice as Tall by Burna Boy has been the most-streamed album in sub-Saharan Africa and holds the No. 5 positions nationally throughout Africa.

Wizkid’s Made In Lagos ranks No. 2 in the most streamed albums across sub-Saharan Africa, and is No. 7 on the most-streamed albums list across Africa.

The third-best album on the list is A Better Time by Davido, followed by Laughter, Tears & Goosebumps by Fireboy DML and APOLLO by Fireboy DML.

According to Deezer, when looking at music fans all over Africa, hip hop and R&B artists like Drake, Pop Smoke, and The Weeknd are the top-ranked artists.

However, the situation is different when it comes to music lovers in Africa – local sub-Saharan acts, such as Nigeria’s Burna Boy, are predominant. Davido and Wizkid follow.

”It’s a different story for music fans in Africa when we focus only on sub-Saharan artists, where Nigerian superstar Burna Boy, Davido, and Wizkid take the top spots.”

Sotiris Moldovanos, Deezer Africa’s music editor, said: “Africa Day is a time for reflection and celebration. We are pleased to see local artists across the continent being streamed.
