Did Davido Go Platinum Before Wizkid?

Davido and Wizkid are two of the greatest artists Nigeria has produced as they keep making waves in the international entrepreneur industry.

Recently, Wizkid was reported to be the first to have a Platinum song certified, which I will be discussing who got it first in this article. 

Davido made a history last year as his hit single "Risky" which he released in 2019 became the first Nigerian song to be certified Platinum by Recording Industry of South Africa in 2020. Davido also has two songs certified gold by the RIAA.

While Wizkid's hit single titled "Essence" earned him the accolade of the first Nigerian artist to get a Platinum certified single by the Recording Industry Association Of America in 2021.

In conclusion, Davido was the first Nigerian artist to go Platinum while Wizkid is the first Nigerian artist to go Platinum in America.
