History

'A Good Time' and two other singles, 'Blow my Mind' featuring Chris Brown and 'Risky', have now gone platinum.

The latter, which featured Jamaican dancehall act, Popcaan, went double platinum.

An album or a track goes platinum once it has hit a certain number of sales.

The exact number of album sales required to go platinum varies from country to country, depending on the population.

In the United States, platinum certification means that an album has sold one million copies or that a single has sold two million copies.

Diamond means a U.S. sale of more than 10 million units for a single title.

Davido was also presented with a certification by Sony Music West Africa (SMWA) all after the three projects went platinum.

In September 2019, Wizkid had emerged the most streamed African artiste in history with over 4 billion streams on all digital platforms.

The streams also included features cuts across streaming platforms like Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, Tidal, Deezer, and SoundCloud.
