Wizkid, a megastar of the Afrobeats genre, was awarded a diamond certification by the RIAA for his contributions to Drake’s mega-hit “One Dance,” which has been recognized to have sold more than 10 million copies in the US.

Drake’s “Views” album includes a 2016 single, which also includes Wizkid and Kyla Reid. With over 2.4 billion Spotify streams, they would go on to become a global hit.

Being one of the biggest stars in Africa thanks to the success of “One Dance,” Wizkid has achieved a significant milestone. For Afrobeats, it was also a turning point because the song introduced the genre to a wider audience.

Wizkid receives a diamond RIAA certification, making him the first musician from Nigeria to do so. The platinum plaque for his international smash track “Essence” featuring Tems and Justin Bieber was the most recent RIAA plaque awarded to the Grammy winner.
