Nigerian singer, Fireboy DML’s latest hit single, Peru has broken another record being the first Nigerian solo song to top the Afrobeats UK chart for 4 straight weeks in a row.
Fireboy’s Peru was announced the top song on the Afrobeats UK chart and by extension, has now broken the record for Nigerian solo songs atop the chart.
Peru was released months back by Fireboy and the song became an instant jam on arrival. In an interview with British-Congolese comedian and show host Eddie Kadi, Fireboy revealed that the song, Peru was not planned, but rather a freestyle he created in the studio after going there originally to greet Shizzi. According to the ace songwriter, Shizzi played the beat and he (Fireboy DML) got lost in the moment and delivered the smash tune the world is currently enjoying.
Fireboy has seen his latest hit, Peru now top the Afrobeats UK chart for a fourth straight week, breaking a Nigerian record in the process. Wizkid and Buju’s Mood takes second place on the charts, followed by Burna Boy’s Want It All, Joeboy’s Alcohol, before Petite by NSG rounds up the top 5.
