An excited Shaggy, in sharing the news via Instagram, said: “I would like to take the opportunity to say thanks to our fans for taking Banana to over one billion streams. Thank you very much everybody. One billion! Bless up.”

Shaggy also thanked the producers and labels who were involved in the process.
