Despite the widespread feeling of disappointment with the absence of Drake in Wizkid’s new video, ‘Come Closer’ has recorded more than a million YouTube views in less than 24 hours after its release.
This makes Wizkid the first African artiste to hit the million mark withing the first 24 hours of release. The music video which was released during the early hours of Friday raked in 1 million views in just 20 hours of its official release.
However, the singer has a long way to go if he wants to repeat the feat on the world stage. Adele’s ‘Hello‘ video got 27.7 million views on YouTube within its first day of release while Taylor Swift’s ‘Bad Blood‘ ft Kendrick Lamar was viewed by 20 million people within 24 hours.
