4. D’Banj: Oliver Twist (42 Million)
“Oliver Twist,” the chart-topping song by Nigerian singer-songwriter D’Banj, was released in 2012 as the lead single for the album “D’Kings Men.”
It debuted at No. 9 on the U.K. Singles Chart and went on to become an international hit, enjoying remixes and covers from global superstars, such as Kanye West and PitBull.
The official music video was released to YouTube later in 2012, and it quickly became the most watched African music video on YouTube. It has since fallen to No. 4 on the list, but it still boasts a respectable 42 million views.
