10 Most Watched Nigerian Youtube Music Videos Ever

YouTube is one of the primary ways people outside the shores of Nigeria connect to Nigerian music videos. It is also an indication of how big a song is accepted or known internationally. As we come to the end of the year, we will examine the Top 10 most viewed Nigerian Music videos on YouTube.
Three (3) crooners, Burna Boy, Davido and Ckay, dominate the list with two songs each. The list also features gospel music by Sinach. Based on the total accumulation of views for a particular song from all channels with copyrights, Ckay’s Love Nwantiti will be Number 1 with about a billion views but we base this assessment on one video (track) alone.
