Spotify Royalties for Nigerian artists alone worth over N25 billion in 2023


Nigerians and other sub-Saharan African countries claim the world’s fastest music-rising market with an astounding 24.7% increase in revenue. According to the IFPI’s 2024 report, a boom in paid streaming services drives the growth that contributes 24.5% of revenues.

With a population of approximately 230 million, Nigeria’s music industry is experiencing impressive growth in streaming. Nigeria’s music scene is a force to consider, given that it hosts some of Africa’s most powerful artists.

Spotify is a path-breaker platform that lets music artists reach audiences outside borders while making a profit from their work.

To increase transparency in the music industry by sharing data on its royalties, Spotify published a Loud & Clear Annual Report. The global streaming economy, the players, and the process are further analyzed here.

Spotify released data reports for Nigerian artists on the platform for two consecutive years. Notably, Rema’s ‘Calm Down’ featuring Selena Gomez is the first Afrobeats song to reach a billion streams on Spotify.
