1. Nigeria: Davido’s ‘A Better Time’ album reaches 100 million streams in 3 days
Davido took to his Twitter account yesterday to thank his fans for helping him reach a new milestone. He revealed that “A Better Time” accumulated 100 million streams in 3 days. The number of streams was an aggregation of all such streams on Apple Music, YouTube, Audiomack, Boomplay, and Spotify.
He also added that it is possible for these numbers to go up because he is expecting new updates from other streaming services. The fourth song on the album, “Holy Ground”, which features Nicki Minaj also reached new heights as it debuted on Billboard world digital chart.
2. Barack Obama releases A Promised Land book and playlist
Former United States President Barack Obama has made a habit of sharing playlists ahead of major events. This time, Obama has released a playlist to mark the release of his new book, “A Promised Land,“ and the list features “some memorable songs from my administration,” Obama said in a tweet.
The new playlist, which features artists like Beyoncé and Stevie Wonder, is only 20 tracks, making it much shorter than Obama’s recent Summer DNC playlist, which is more than twice as long. But there should be enough tunes on the playlist to get interested readers in the mood for Obama’s book, A Promised Land, which is out today. The book is the first volume of his presidential memoirs and candidly tells the story of Barack Obama’s ascent to the White House. Davido A Better Time album.

Charges of rape against musician Sjava have been thrown out. Sjava was facing a sexual assault charge after his former lover, Lady Zamar opened a case of rape that allegedly happened at a hotel in Thohoyondou, Limpopo, in 2017 after a concert.
