Six months after the release of his fourth studio project, Kizz Daniel becomes the first ever music artiste to hit 100,000,000 project-based streams on Boomplay.
This milestone was achieved with his “Barnabas EP” which comprises of several chart-topping singles and crowd favorites, released in November 2021.
The ‘Barnabas’ EP arrived a few weeks after Kizz Daniel dominated various music charts with the single “Lie“. Following the EP release, Kizz Daniel received positive reviews on the experimental nature of the project and it joined the likes of “What Have You Done” EP by Omah Lay, Burna Boy’s Twice as Tall and Joeboy’s “Somewhere between Music and Magic,” as Nigerian projects with an impressive run on the streaming platform.
Having remained on the top 5 Boomplay Album chart and dominating the top 100 chart since inception with singles like Oshe, Eh God and Pour Me Water, breaking Boomplay’s project based streaming record is yet another nod in Kizz Daniel’s career trajectory and laudable in his intent for global domination.
Tosin Sorinola, Director of Artist and Media Relations at Boomplay Music said “Kizz Daniel is an Uber talented artist and I am glad he is finally getting the kind of exposure he deserves and, through our platform. Boomplay is unwavering in its commitment to supporting African artistes, helping them reach and unlock new fans of their music.
We are thrilled that Kizz has recorded this ground breaking feat and we hope this achievement serves as an inspiration to artistes and the industry at large.”
