Davido’s 2019 album, ‘A Good Time’ and two other singles ‘Blow my Mind’ featuring Chris Brown and ‘Risky’, have gone platinum.
The latter, which featured Jamaican dancehall act, Popcaan, went double platinum.
The album was released in November 2019 through RCA Records, Sony Music and his own imprint, Davido Music Worldwide.
An album or a track go 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.
Platinum, on the other hand, means a single has sold two million copies.
A follow-up to his 2012 debut album “Omo Baba Olowo,” “A Good Time” contained seventeen tracks, with ten of the songs being solo works of Davido, while the other seven were collaborative efforts with a rich selection of local and international talents.
The collaborations featured Popcaan, Peruzzi, Zlatan, Naira Marley, WurlD, Summer Walker, Chris Brown, Gunna, Dremo, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and Yonda. While prominent music producers on the album include Shizzi, Kiddominant, Speroach Beatz, Tekno, etc.
Davido while unveiling the cover art penned down an emotional story about his journey through life.
He recounted the sad story of how he lost his mom and other loved ones, he also shared his joy about his fiancée, Chioma, his daughters, Imade and Hailey and his son, Ifeanyi Adeleke.
The 27-year-old singer was presented a certification by Sony Music West Africa (SMWA) all after the three projects went platinum.
One of the most interesting highlights from the even was that a picture was taken at the event to imitate the album art cover of ‘A Good Time’ album of Davido
