Muyiwa Awoniyi, the manager of superstar singer, Tems, has taken a swipe at artists who are obsessed with dominating the Apple Music Nigeria chart.
He said such artists are not in tune with reality, adding that the Afrobeats music scene has become global.
Awoniyi stated this via his Twitter handle on Monday.
He wrote, “Imagining caring about Apple Music NG in 2023. Are you a baby? Or you don’t know the scene is global now?”
Quizzed by a fan on why he thinks the Apple Music Nigeria chart is irrelevant, Awoniyi explained: “The amount of users of the app within the country is what makes a chart relevant. You clearly don’t even know how many people even have Apple Music in Nigeria.”
There are speculations that some artists manipulate chart positions on Apple Music Nigeria using a technology called “streaming farm.”
