Davido continues his season of wins, as his two records – ‘If’ and ‘Fall’ – goes Diamond and Platinum in South Africa.
OBO's ‘If’ goes Diamond, ‘Fall’ hits platinum in South Africa
Tw0 of Davido's singles have received sales certifications.
The singer received the plaques today, which he announced via Instagram. “‘IF’ Is officially Diamond and ‘FALL’ is officially Platinum in sales!!! My trophies’s finallly came in as well! GOD IS REAL!! Thank you Guys for making this happen!! just gettin started!!! Bless to my team.”
What does it mean to go Diamond and Platinum In South Africa?
According to the Recording Industry of South Africa (RISA), For a single to be certified Gold status it should have sold over 10,000 units, and 20,000 units for Platinum status.
For it to go Diamond, it has to do 10 times Platinum. In this case that equals 200,000 copies.
Interestingly, the RISA also counts music videos as a part of it too. 5,000 views of a music video makes the record go gold. 10,000 makes it platinum. It’s a complex system that involves lots of calculations.
Wizkid performed alongside Davido during the London leg of the latter’s UK tour on Sunday night.
The London concert took place at the 5000-capacity 02 Academy in Brixton. Before London, Davido had performed in Birmingham, Manchester, and Leicester.
Just like they did in each other’s shows in December, 2017, they jumped, sang and got the crowd riled up while performing monster hit ‘Manya’. Check out the video below.
