With Joro clocking 100 million views on YouTube, Wizkid joins Burnaboy and Davido in new record

Wizkid, Davido and Burnaboy are undisputably the big 3 of the afrobeats game. The distinction between them and other Nigerian artists is set, not only by their talents and consistency, but also a shared knack for setting and breaking records.

Up until earlier today however, Burnaboy and Davido solely held the record of only Nigerian artists to have two music videos respectively grossing over 100 million views on YouTube.

Much to delight of his fans the popularly dreaded "Wizkid FC", the Starboy has joined the club with his video for Joro hitting 100 million views following Come closer which achieved it earlier this year.

With Soco almost at 92 million views, it is looking like Wizkid might be on his way to having the most music videos getting to a 100 milli with 3 visuals (come closer, Joro and Soco).

Davido holds the current record for most streamed afrobeats record on YouTube however with over 180 million views.

Wizkid holds the record for most streamed record label track "Soco" at 92 million views, with the second "Dorobucci" by the Mavins crew though a smash viral hit, lacking behind with 30+ million streams.

It is indeed a great time to be an afrobeats fan, we hope our Titans and new school artists keep breaking boundaries and making us proud!
