The Therapist has become the fastest Sierra Leonean artiste to hit a million YouTube views on a single music video with his trending song ‘Nack’. An extraordinary record meted out by the new kid on the block.
Jacob Evangelista who goes by the stage name The Therapist has made history! The TikTok sensationist is one of the most followed Sierra Leonean TikTokers with a following surpassing two million followers and arguably one of the most famous Sierra Leoneans at the moment. Nack, which was produced by legendary Nigerian producer Masterkraft, became an instant banger on TikTok during its first week. It received a laudable acclamation from music crooners all over the continent of Africa and the globe.
It also caught the attention of legendary actor Mr Ibu and also was a popular soundtrack for skit makers. On a personal level, I was exclaimed when a friend residing in Belgium recorded “Nack” being played in a local pub.
Nack is the first Sierra Leonean song to have more than 40 million views on TikTok with over 200K videos contributed, the first Sierra Leonean to have over 800K streams on all streaming platforms in its first 20 days, and amongst the top five songs on Boomplay and TikTok in its first two weeks.
