Nigerian Grammy-award winner and self-acclaimed African Giant, Burna Boy has reached another milestone this time, as the first-ever African artiste to hit 200 million streams on Africa’s Number one music streaming platform, Boomplay.

Barely a year after Burna Boy was celebrated as the first artiste to hit the 100 million streams milestone on Boomplay, he has gone ahead to double the feat, making him the first artiste to be streamed 200 million times on Africa’s #1 streaming service, Boomplay.

This was revealed on the official Facebook page of the music streaming platform with the caption, 

“Odogwu you bad, e file fun Burna Boy as he poses with the first-ever duo-golden club plaque for hitting 200,000,000 streams on Boomplay!”

Tosin Sorinola – Boomplay’s  Director of Artist & Media Relations, who presented a plaque in recognition of this feat to the Afrofusion musician in Lagos, Nigeria, said;

“This is another iconic feat for Burna Boy, Boomplay, and the entire African music industry.

This achievement shows that fans in Africa are fast catching up to the digitization of music and streaming, which Boomplay is championing.

With this development, artistes can earn even more on our platform. Burna Boy is a massively talented singer whose works will continue to affect people positively across Africa and the rest of the world.

We are proud of what he is doing and his milestone achievements on Boomplay; to this effect, we, at Boomplay, present this plaque to him in special recognition of his contributions so far in the industry and are looking forward to more extraordinary achievements.”

Boomplay streams are calculated based on industry-recognized standards in which only no less than thirty-second stream is equal to one stream count.
