Spotify’s Head of Music for Sub-Saharan Africa, Phiona Okumu, disclosed this during a media chat in Lagos on Thursday.
Okumu, who said that the study was carried out by Spotify, added that Kenya ranked the third.
She said that artistes including WizKid, Burna Boy, Tems and Mr Eazi ranked amongst the top five exported local artistes from Nigeria on Spotify.
She said Spotify’s presence in Nigeria over the past years had seen Nigerians go on a journey of discovery.
