Adekunle “Gold” Kosoko, a Nigerian artist, has accused some of his colleagues in the music industry of using streaming farms to artificially boost the popularity of their songs.
He took to Twitter to mock those whose songs quickly rose to the top of the music charts but then plummeted in rankings shortly after.
He suggested that these artists used funds to pay for fake streams, but the funds have now run out, leading to the decline in their chart positions.
“Songs wey dey top 20 last week don go 170 something, owo fertilizer ti ku waso,” he wrote.
