Nigerian born hip hop star, Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun professionally known as Wizkid has become the first African artist to hit eight million monthly streams on Spotify.
Prior to this, the record was been held by Congolese singer and rapper, Maitre Gims who had around seven million monthly listeners.
