Wizkid, an Afrobeat icon, is the first Nigerian musician to receive a Diamond certification in the US.
The fact that a song has a Diamond certification indicates that 10 million copies of it have been sold in the US. This information was made public via the chart data’s official Twitter account.
Recall how Wizkid, real name Ayodeyi Balogun, recently made headlines for allegedly revealing his singleness and bashing Nigerian musicians after calling rap “dead and boring”?. Some rappers were heated up by this.
“@wizkidayo becomes the first Nigerian artist with a Diamond single in the US.”
