… As Timaya’s “Ekaloma Demba” Knocks Off Burna Boy's "Run My Race" From Number One.
Singer-songwriter and hitmaker, Timaya headlines this week’s charts for the first time ever with his monster video for “Ekoloma Demba”. MTV Base VJ Ehis (@SpecialSlim) will be joined by Rhythm FM OAP Toke Makinwa to discuss the week’s hottest music videos.
Burna Boy’s former number one “Run My Race” sinks to second place in this week’s chart after two weeks in the top slot. Illbliss and DJ Xclusive both move up one space, to number 7 and number 3, respectively, with “I’m Sorry” and “No Time”.
Former number one “Tell Me Something” by D’Banj drops two more places to number 5, while Olamide’s ”Duro Soke” slips one place to number 8.
Rapper Sound Sultan is stuck tight at number 10 with “Natural Something” after debuting in that position last week, while Dammy Krane is locked down tight at number 9 with “Xteristics” – also for the second week running.
