Wande Coal is showing no signs of moving from the top of this week’s MTV Base Official Naija Top 10 powered by Star Music. ‘The Kick‘ artist enters his second consecutive week at number one and fourth week in total (after briefly being usurped by Iyanya).
RIding high is Chidinma at no 3, this week’s highest climber. The ‘E Mi Ni Baller’ songstress joins VJ Ehis in the Top 10 studio this week as special guest to talk about her personal success and to run through the top 10.
Also this week: PSquare continues to inch their way to number one, jumping one place to number 2 and offering a stiff challenge to Wande Coal with ‘Personally‘ : D’Banj moves up to number 4 with ‘Don’t Tell‘ and Burna Boy jumps two places to number 6. 2Face’s ‘Rainbow‘ continues up the chart, moving one place to number 8, while DJ Xclusive also moves up on spot to number 9.
Timaya makes his debut on the Official Naija Top 10 this week, entering the chart at number 10 with ‘Ekoloma Demba‘. Dropping out of the chart altogether this week is Iyanya with ‘Sexy MAMA’– a shock exit for last week’s number 2.
