Davido who disclosed that hit song ‘Fall’ is now African most viewed video on YouTube with 98.9 million views, was dragged into an exchange with a troll who was once in his DM begging him for money to travel down to Mecca for pilgrimage.
Here is a screenshot of the exchange between Davido and the troll below;
This is coming few months after the singer’s two singles – ‘If’ and ‘Fall’ – went Diamond and Platinum in South Africa.
The singer received the plaques for the milestone achievement and he wrote on Instagram;
“‘IF’ Is officially Diamond and ‘FALL’ is officially Platinum in sales!!! My trophies’s finallly came in as well! GOD IS REAL!! Thank you Guys for making this happen!! just gettin started!!! Bless to my team.”
According to the Recording Industry of South Africa (RISA), For a single to be certified Gold status it should have sold over 10,000 units, and 20,000 units for Platinum status. For it to go Diamond, it has to do 10 times Platinum. In this case that equals 200,000 copies.
Interestingly, the RISA also counts music videos as a part of it too. 5,000 views of a music video makes the record go gold. 10,000 makes it platinum. It’s a complex system that involves lots of calculations.
