It would interest you to know that before now, the Nigerian Music Industry has experienced a lot of record-breaking following the consistent release of hits and unique videos backed up with the right collaborations, both locally and internationally to appeal to the audience at large.

The release of  ‘Fever’ visuals featuring Tiwa Savage, set the record for Wizkid, being the first video to hit an accumulated view of over 1million in the space of 24 hours.

DMW boss Davido, had earlier broken Wizkid’s record after his collaboration with Chris Brown in ‘Blow My Mind’ hit a million views on YouTube just after 10 hours of its release.

The video opens up with Davido singing his verse in a motel room with a girl chilling on the bed behind him, while Chris Brown pulled off some impressive choreography in front of the motel in the video.

However, Wizkid would go on to set a new record with ‘Brown Skin Girl’ as the video garnered a million views just 7 hours after it’s release.
