Despite being vaguely inactive on social media, Davido continues to trend across platforms. His brand manager Asa Asika disclosed that only he and CKay are Platinum-selling artists, and the music sensation has found himself on the trending list and in the conversations of many music-loving netizens’

Through His business/management Twitter account, ‘The Plug,’ Asika published the information. According to the Plug, the only solo acts with Platinum are Davido and CKay. CKay and Davido have platinum records for their songs “Love Nwantiti” and “FALL,” respectively.

Even though Die Hard Fans of Wizkid, who call themselves, Wizkid FC, reminded him that “Essence” has a Platinum, Asa did not remove the post. Many are saying that his reason may be because ‘Essence’ is a collaboration between Wizkid and Tems rather than merely Wizkid’s track, and as such, it would be disregarded in this context.
