Wizkid and BurnaBoy’s Ginger video drops on Friday

Last year, Wizkid released one of the most popular albums of the year. Within one week of release, Made in Lagos broke several African streaming records. It became the first African album to debut on the Spotify Global Album chart, and within the top ten at that. The album surpassed 100 million streams across five platforms nine days after release, a huge milestone for an Afro-pop artist. It debuted at no. 15 on the Uk albums chart with over 4,100 album-equivalent units and no. 80 on the US Billboard 200 with over 10,000 album-equivalent units.

Ginger became the only charting single off the album in the first week of release, peaking at no. 67 on the UK singles chart. This chart entry made Wizkid the first Nigerian artist with two UK Singles’ entries from two albums. Ginger became the first number one song on the newly launched TurnTable Top50 chart, the first in Nigeria.

The video for Ginger set to be released on the 8th of January was shot in London. The trailer shows Wizkid moving towards a parked Benz with people sitting in it.
