YBNL singer and songwirter, Fireboy DML’s latest hit single, Peru has a new record as it tops the Afrobeats UK Chart for the fourth week in a row. This makes it the first Nigerian single to achieve this feat.
As Fireboy’s “Peru” tops the Afrobeats UK Chart, Wizkid and Buju’s “Mood” takes second place on the charts, followed by Burna Boy’s “Want It All”, Joeboy’s “Alcohol”, before “Petite” by NSG rounds up the top 5.
Fireboy released “Peru” a few months back and the song has become an instant hit single since then.
A week ago, Fireboy revealed in an interview with British-Congolese comedian and show host Eddie Kadi, that the song, Peru was not planned, but rather a freestyle he created in the studio after going there originally to greet Shizzi.
