DMW Boss, Davido who announced few days ago that his hit songs “If” and “Fall” have gone diamond and platinum in sales respectively, was dragged into an exchange by a follower who questioned the worth of the songs his churns out.
His follower asked;
When will you sing a song that has an actual worth
Well Davido who reacted to the tweet, tweeted;
Wat u know about worth ?? Wetin u get ?
An album or 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 population.
In the United States, platinum certification means that an album has sold 1 million copies or that a single has sold 2 million copies.
Diamond means a U.S. sale of more than 10 million units for a single title.
Platinum on the other hand means a single has sold 2 million copies.
Davido shared the news on his Instagram page on Wednesday and also announced that his awards and plaques have arrived.
The singer also shared a photo of himself at the Columbia Records office with his awards and plaques.
If, which is undoubtedly one of Davido’s biggest hits, was produced by Tekno and released in February 2017. The Afro pop superstar dropped four chart topping singles namely “If”, “Fall”, “Fia” and “Like Dat” in 2017. The songs have remained fan favorites ever since.
No doubt music star, Davido, is one of the most influential and sought-after artistes on the continent but things were not always rosy for him. During a chat with MTVBase, the leader of the 30billion gang said that his father was not happy with his career path till he had to prove his worth.
