This is a brilliant News for Naija music lovers who want an inside track on what’s hip and happening on the scene. Music authority MTV Base is set to launch the first definitive chart of Nigerian contemporary music.
“The Official Naija Top 10,” produced by MTV Base, is a weekly music chart countdown that will air on MTV Base, STV, NTA and AIT from 8 March 2013.
According to MTV Base’s Tim Horwood, “The Official Naija Top 10 has been specially created by MTV Base in conjunction with an elite panel of Nigerian broadcasters, music specialists and taste makers including DJ Jimmy Jatt, Cool FM’s DJ Xclusive, DJ Humility and Big Time (Rhythm FM), DJ Case and Toolz (The Beat FM) and Osagie Alonge (The NET NG).”
Continues Horwood, “The Official Naija Top 10 will be based on a wide range of sources, including radio airplay, digital downloads and industry insights, and is designed to play a similar role to the Billboard charts in the USA.”
Each week, The Official Naija Top 10 will be published in Nigerian Entertainment Today.
“I am so proud to be part of team involved in The Official Naija Top 10. Both the Nigerian music industry and music fans will benefit from this authoritative and independent chart that will play a major role in promoting Nigerian talent and musicians at home and overseas,” commented Jimmy Jatt.
