Tems’ “Free Mind” was overtaken by “Essence,” which shot up from number two.

After upsetting American big hitters like DJ Khaled, Lil Nas X, and Doja Cat to win the honor, Wizkid became the first African to take home a major BET Awards trophy.

The most popular Afrobeats song in the US is “Essence,” which debuted in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100. The global smash went 14 weeks on the Billboard US Afrobeats Chart as well.
