The TurnTable Top 100 (also known as TurnTable Nigeria Top 100) is the music industry standard record chart in Nigeria for songs, published weekly by TurnTable magazine. Chart rankings are based on airplay (radio and tv) and online streaming in Nigeria. In its opening year, TurnTable charts listed 50 positions, but later expanded its chart ranking to 100 on the second half of 2022.

The first issue of the Top 100, was launched on Monday, July 11, 2022, and was led by Asake "Peace Be Unto You (PBUY)".

History

The weekly chart was launched on July 13, 2020, as TurnTable Top 50. The chart is also a component of the End of the Year Top 50, with data from Audiomack, Boomplay Music, and YouTube. The first issue of the Top 50 chart was launched on Monday, November 9, 2020, and was led by Wizkid "Ginger". The chart was compiled by TurnTable on Wednesdays, and published on Mondays.

Policy

On 6 July 2022, TurnTable finalized weighting changes to streaming and airplay components of music activity in Nigeria that will make up its new flagship chart, TurnTable Top 100. The proposed TurnTable Nigeria Top 100 will comprise two major components; streaming and airplay. Under the new system, TurnTable Charts’ streaming classification model will weigh paid subscription services higher than ad-supported services. This means that the Top 100 will be calculated based on paid subscription streams, in which streaming will account for 50% of the chart, airplay will account for the other 50% of the chart. Paid streams will be weighted as one point (1.0) per play value, freemium streams will be weighted as 0.75 points per play, and ad-supported video streams from YouTube will be weighted 0.66 points per play, while ad-supported streams will be weighted 0.5 points per play.

Remixes

The original and remix versions will be combined for a singular chart entry, and the version with the highest percentage of total streaming & airplay will be credited. However, in a case where the structure, lyrics, and melody of a song are changed for the remix, it will count as a new chart entry and registered as “Pt 2” on the chart.

Album Cuts

Album cuts are eligible to chart on the Nigeria Top 100 provided they pass all the requirements.

Bundling

TurnTable Charts will account for bundling on a case-by-case basis.

Recurrent

A song enters the recurrent status if it has spent 25 weeks on the Nigeria Top 100 and fallen below No. 50 – and if it has spent 52 weeks on the chart and falls below No. 25. The aim of this policy is to allow the chart remain as current as possible and prevent holdover from major artistes and international artistes signed to major labels.

Tracking Week

The tracking week for all the platforms tracked by TurnTable coincides with the global release date, i.e. Friday to Thursday, a seven-day tracking week. This applies to the Top 100.
