Here is How Rihanna Used ‘Nowo’ By DJ Spinall Featuring Wizkid On Instagram

Superstar singer, Rihanna has inadvertently given a major push to a song by Nigerian Afropop star, Starboy aka Wizkid, and collaborator DJ Spinall.

Rihanna on Saturday shared a post on her Instagram page to announce that she had become the first female artist to have over two billion worldwide streams on Apple Music.

According to her the post she shared — a video clip of four girls dancing to ‘Nowo’ by Wizkid and DJ Spinall — was intended to convey the level of her excitement at adding a new record to her swelling chest of feats.

“When I found out that I was the first female artist to cross 2 billion worldwide streams on Apple Music! God is too lit,” the ‘Stay’ singer wrote her caption.

The hat was perhaps the sole intent of her post, but it is generating online interest, particularly from Nigerians, for another reason entirely.

To many, regardless of her intention, her post is an endorsement of the Wizkid-DJ Spinall ‘Nowo’ which recently surged past one million views on YouTube.

The collaboration was released less than two weeks ago.

Nigerians have since stormed the comment section of Rihanna's IG post, to let her fans know that the song was performed by Wizkid.
