Spotify, an online streaming platform, says Adekunle Gold’s music has been identified to be mostly streamed in the U.S. in the last 28 days.

Phiona Okumu, Spotify’s Head of Music for Sub-Saharan Africa, publicized this in a statement in Lagos.
Okumu also said Nigeria is the second nation where the artiste’s music is most streamed followed by the United Kingdom.

She said the data was released in celebration of Adekunle’s grand success as he released his 18-track album, “Tequila Ever After”, on July 28.

According to her, the album features adekunle’s published tracks like ‘Party No Dey Stop’ featuring Zinoleesky; “Omo Eko”, “Do You Mind”? and ”Ogaranya”

“Spotify data shows that fans are already loving the releases, with Party No Dey Stop landing as his fifth most streamed track of all time, just four months after its release.

“It is also the most exported track globally among 18-35 year-olds, followed by High, the Davido-featured track.
“There is no doubt that Adekunle is well-loved in Nigeria, after all, his single “Omo Eko” is a love letter to Lagos, his native city.

“Interestingly though, Spotify data over the last 28 days shows that the United States is streaming his music the most.

“Nigeria is second, followed by the United Kingdom. AG Baby, as he is also known, just announced a U.S. and UK tour starting in September.

”So, it’s likely that the listeners in these two countries are streaming in willingness for the tour,” she said.
Okumu noted that a true testament to Adekunle’s growth over the years could be seen in his streaming numbers.
She indicated that Adekunle’s first track to hit 10 million streams was “Something Different”, one year and four months after it was released.

She hinted that “Party No Dey Stop” already had 20 million plus streams on Spotify and it only took a little over four months after release.
