Grammy-winning Nigerian superstar, Wizkid‘s summer smash-hit “Essence” off his “Made In Lagos” album has now sold over 1million units in the US.
With this milestone, ‘Essence’ in the coming days could be certified a Platinum record, making it the first Nigerian song to reach such feat in the US.
This news was broken by the reliable Chart Data. This comes barely two weeks after the record was certified Gold in the US, becoming Wizkid’s second Gold record after “Come Closer” featuring Drake.
After it fell last week, ‘Essence’ is back to No. 17 on the charts. Recently, Nigeria’s premier music chart publication, Turntable Charts also reported that ‘Essence’ has been the third biggest Nigerian song of 2021, so far.
