We are very excited and proud to share this list with the Nigerian podcasting community. We all know the struggle of getting stats of any kind about our podcasts collectively, and it gladdens us to be able to put together a list of the top-ranked podcasts of 2020.
Here's how we did it.
@tonydoevo sent us a dm on Twitter.
We already had ten browser tabs of podcast analytics site opened on our laptop, so we figured our days of procrastination were over.
Since it's the first time we are putting together a list of this magnitude, we decided to narrow it a little.
So if you are on this list, here's how you got on it:
We looked into all the podcasts in our database. Our current count is 170. You can check it out here
We only considered podcasts that ranked between 1 and 200 in 2020.
We decided to look at the stats for Apple podcast Nigeria.
Our list is based on how your podcast was listened to or downloaded in Nigeria alone.
We were able to accumulate stats for 68 podcasts hence why we made it a top 50 list.
We didn't add How far by Mr. Eazi and Temi to the list because it has only been out a few weeks, and yes, it has hit #1 in that time.
Without further ado, here we go:
