Afrobeats singer, Rema became the most-watched Nigerian musician on YouTube in 2022 with his single “Calm Down”.

Rema made Nigerians proud as Calm Down also made world history as the most watched video in the history of the Afrobeat genre.

Respected data intelligence firm and digital ecosystem Dataleum compiled the list, which was released earlier.


In 2022, the video was the most-watched of the year with nearly 300 million views, according to the list that examined views of official music videos posted to YouTube in 2022.

Burna Boy’s “Last Last” video, which racked up over 140 million views, and Kizz Daniel’s “Buga” video, which racked up 107 million views, took second and third place respectively in 2022.
