Asake’s ‘Terminator’ debuts at No. 1 on the Nigeria Top 100, matching Davido’s record for most No. 1 singles


The Nigeria Top 100 chart rankings are based on a weighted algorithm that considers audio and video streaming within Nigeria and airplay on radio and satellite TV in the nation. Nigeria’s first and only standard music chart provides comprehensive music activity, including the official No. 1 song.

Asake’s Terminator received 6.83 million streams (ranking first on streaming) and 55.9 million radio plays (No. 2 on streaming). It is Asake’s third number one entry in the Top 100, and his fifth overall (Top 100 and Top 50 combined).

The Most Streams in a Week Ever

Terminator of Asake establishes a new record for the most streaming across all platforms in a week, with 6.83 million streams, well above the previous 4.48 million streams in the second week for ‘Bandana.’ TurnTable Charts currently uses a weighted multi-metric system for its streaming component. Therefore, this record only relates to the Nigeria Top 100. (since July 11, 2022).

With the premiere of ‘Terminator,’ Asake becomes the first artist to have two No. 1 debuts since TurnTable Charts began tracking – ‘PBUY’ and ‘Terminator.’ In addition, Asake is tied with Davido for the most No. 1 songs in Nigeria, with five apiece. Among Asake’s No. 1 singles are ‘Omo Ope,’ ‘Sungba (Remix),’ ‘PBUY,’ ‘Bandana,’ and ‘Terminator.’

Additionally, Asake extends his record for most No. 1 singles in a single calendar year; all his five No. 1 recordings have occurred in 2022. The musician achieved this accomplishment in only 29 weeks, as opposed to Davido, who needed 60 weeks to score five No. 1 songs.

While Asake’s debut album cover art has seven No. 1 singles, the No. 1s are only available on Apple Music Nigeria. ‘Sungba’ is not ranked number one by TurnTable Charts while the remix version of the song hit the Top 50 earlier this year, but ‘PALAZZO’ only peaked at No. 2 on the overall list, after ‘Buga (Lo Lo Lo).’

Former No. 1 Fireboy DML’s ‘Bandana’ with Asake is at No. 2. The song received 5.41 million streams (ranking second on streaming), 72.4 million radio plays (ranking first on radio), and 12.9 million TV views (No. 2 on TV).
‘Bandana’ breaks the record for most radio impressions by a song in a week, surpassing Kiss Daniels’ ‘Buga’ with Tekno, which had 71.4 million radio impressions weekly.

This makes Pheelz the first performer to have multiple top ten hits as both a producer and an artiste; as the latter, he’s had ‘Finesse,’ which peaked at No. 1 for three weeks, and ‘Electricity,’ and as the former, he’s had ‘High,’ ‘Stand Strong,’ and ‘Jaiye Foreign,’ which is in this week’s top 10.
