Music Streaming platform Audiomack has announced Nigerian singer Asake as its Artist of the Year for 2022.
The accolade crowns a remarkable run that has seen the musician widely labelled as Nigeria’s biggest breakout star of 2022.
The recognition follows the success of his LP Mr Money With The Vibe, which became the highest-charting debut album by a Nigerian artist ever on Audiomack. The album currently boasts over 330 million streams on the platform.
Signed to YBNL Nation/ Empire, Asake’s other 2022 milestones include an Artist of the Year trophy at the 2022 African Muzik Magazine Awards and a YouTube Black Voices Fund Music Class of 2023 induction.
Months ago, Asake, who secured a brand ambassador deal for sports entertainment company Parimatch, joined Boomplay’s Golden Club after surpassing 100m streams on the music streaming portal. Rival DSP Spotify has also adjudged him as one of the most streamed artists in sub-Saharan Africa in 2022.
