Asake, Burna Boy, and Wizkid among other Nigerian artists feature on Billboard 200 album chart

When your art gets known around the world, as an artist, you tend to brag about it, and your fans will praise you for doing great things.

Over the years, some Nigerian singers have broken down barriers to become international stars. Their albums have debuted on the Billboard 200 album charts, which is a big deal.

Ololade Asake, who is all the rage right now, is the newest Nigerian artist to reach the top of the Billboard 200 album chart.

Other country superstars have accomplished this feat, and some are still holding positions on the chart despite Asake’s exploits. 

Here are some Nigerian artists who currently have albums on the Billboard 200 album chart.

Asake’s Mr. Money With The Vibe

After having hit singles all through 2022, Asake released his first album, Mr. Money With The Vibe, which lived up to the hype right away.

This makes it the fourth highest-charting Nigerian album ever, after Burna Boy’s “Love, Damini,” which debuted at No. 18, Wizkid’s “Made In Lagos,” which debuted at No. 28, and Burna Boy’s Grammy-winning “Twice As Tall,” which debuted at No. 54.
