Despite the ruckus that greeted ‘Come Closer’, Wizkid’s new musical video over the absence of Drake, the video continues to be a major breakthrough for Nigeria’s Starboy.
As at today, May 29, 2017, ‘Come Closer’ has garnered more views than his old hits, including ‘Holla at Your Boy’, ‘In My Bed’ and ‘Jaiye Jaiye’ with over 8.6million views making the video Wizkid’s fifth most viewed music video.
‘Come Closer’ first broke an African record when it got it’s first million views just 24 hours after its release on April 6, and it’s remained the ‘fastest growing’ video by Wizzy.
Perhaps, Nigerians’ disappointment with Drake’s absence is not misplaced, as the video would have had some additional significant millions.
But notwithstanding, ‘Come Closer’ has performed creditably thus far and it shouldn’t be long before it becomes Wizkid’s highest viewed video.
