In a world where rappers are less appreciated and celebrated for their art, Olamide breaks that yolk with Infinity – a song that has amassed over 100 million streams on Spotify. The song features young star, Omah Lay and it’s a blend of rap and hook.
Fireboy DML (1)
One of Olamide’s proteges and hottest new-generation singers. Fireboy, like his label boss has one song that has grossed over 100 million streams on Spotify, which is Peru.
Ayra Starr (1)
This is the second Mavin act to have crossed such a huge feat. With Rush; a buzzing Gen-z anthem, Starr makes her way into this list. The song currently has over 200 million streams.
Who would have thought the Away crooner would make such an impact in a short time? Well, Oxlade has the temerity to pull such a feat with his lovely, seductive and sonorous vocals.
Off all the songs the singer has produced, Ku Lo Sa – that magical contagious tune has crossed the 100 million milestone on the streaming platform. And that is the only song to do so, so far.
