“Fall“, a track from Davido‘s second album “A Good Time” has become Gold certified in the U.S days after it went Gold in Canada.
The music maestro broke the good news on his Instagram and Twitter pages today May 29, 2020.
His announcement of FALL being certified GOLD by RIAA is coming few days after same song went Gold in Canada.
“RIAA” is a music sales award cum certification in America, and its acronym stands for Recording Industry Association of America.
For any musical work of art to be certified Godl by RIAA in America, such piece of art must have surpassed 500,000 unit sales based on physical distribution (and not just online streams).
According to RIAA, a Gold certified song or album represents a whopping $1 million sales, and now that’s a big fortune in Nigerian currency, do the calculation.
This is indeed a double win for the music executive for the year 2020.
