Rema breaks King Sunny Ade’s 41-year-old record on US Billboard Albums chart

Famous singer, Divine Ikubor, aka Rema, has broken legendary musician, King Sunny Ade’s 41-year-old record as the Nigerian artiste with the longest-running album in the US Billboard 200 chart’s history.

DAILY POST recalls that King Sunny Ade set the record with his critically-acclaimed album, “Juju Music” in 1982 – 18 years before Rema was born.

The album spent 29 weeks on the Billboard 200 chart and was the longest-running Nigerian project in the chart’s history until it was recently displaced by Rema’s debut album ‘Rave & Roses’ which spent a 30th week on the chart this week.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption.
