Runtown has been running town as his single ‘Mad Over You‘ has steadily climbed up to the #1 position on Playdata Top100 charts for two consecutive weeks. Will this hit song have enough appeal to compare to Tekno’s monster hit Pana which dominated the #1 spot for 16 consecutive weeks? Many believe 2017 to be a Tekno dominated year however, others seem to speculate on a Runtown take over with more than 10 of his songs airing frequently on radio. With Pana slipping from #4 last week to #11 this week, is it possible that Nigerians have had their fill of the catchy afropop hit? Well, before drawing any conclusions, lets use live data to compare the performance of both songs during the first six weeks of their debut.
Pana came into the charts more aggressively and made it to #1 by the fourth week.
Mad Over You had a milder entrance into the charts at #34 but found it’s way to #1 by week 5.
The next few weeks shall determine how Nigerians feel about Mad Over You. Now I can’t speak for everyone but the song is beginning to have the same intoxicating Pana effect on me. Please leave comments below and tell us which song you think will be a bigger hit and why.
