Nigerian music star Davido has received a multi-platinum plaque after his latest album ‘A Good Time’ went platinum.


His ‘Risky’ song featuring Popcaan was also rated double platinum, while ‘Blow My Mind’ with American singer Chris Brown was also accorded platinum.


He shared a video on Instagram where he was receiving the plaque.


According to the Recording Industry Association of America, when an artiste earns a gold and platinum award, he/she joins the ranks of an elite group of beloved musicians.


The list of Gold and Platinum Award recipients shows a rich history of recorded music where ‘Going Gold’ is the music industry’s parlance for selling 500,000 copies of an album.


Going Platinum means the album has gone to the next step, doubling the sales to one million copies.
