Davido's hit song ‘Fall’ continues to break records.

Last year it became the first Nigerian music video to reach 100 million views on YouTube, and now it has been named the longest-charting Nigerian song in US chart history, music news site OkayAfrica reports

In January the star sold out London's O2 arena in the UK. It comes as industry bigwigs in the US and beyond are waking up to the huge popularity of Afrobeats.

In the last two years, Sony and Universal Music have both established offices in Nigeria and struck publishing and distribution deals with up-and-coming musicians.
