Kizz Daniel becomes the first music artist to reach 100,000,000 project-based streams on Boomplay six months after releasing his fourth studio album.
His "Barnabas EP," which includes multiple chart-topping singles and fan favorites and was released in November 2021, helped him reach this milestone.
The 'Barnabas' EP was released a few weeks after Kizz Daniel's single "Lie" stormed different music charts. Following the EP's release, Kizz Daniel garnered great feedback for the project's experimental character, joining Omah Lay's "What Have You Done" EP, Burna Boy's Twice as Tall, and Joeboy's "Somewhere Between Music and Magic" as Nigerian projects having a strong presence on the streaming site.
Having remained on the top 5 Boomplay Album chart and dominating the top 100 chart since its 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 incredibly talented artist and I am glad he is finally getting the kind of exposure he deserves 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 other artistes and the industry at large. ”
Kizz Daniel commented on this feat with a post on his social media platforms with the caption, "On God, I simply need to get back on the highway come MAY and give em!!”
He added, “The years method is too lengthy, mehn!! #afroclassicworldtour2022. Thanks, guys, for the countless love #BARNABAS EP s/o @boomplaymusicng. ”
The 7-track EP, which features contributions from The Cavemen and Kelvyn Cole with producer credits to the likes of DJ Coublon, Philkeyz, Young John, Reward Beatz, and Blaise Beatz, is currently trending on Boomplay.
