After receiving his first platinum certification with Drake’s “One Dance” and his second with the massive hit record “Essence,” which features Tems, the singer’s song “Come Closer,” which featured Canadian rapper Drake, became Wizkid’s second song to receive a platinum certification and the singer’s third in his career. The fact that Wizkid has already received three platinum certifications from the RIAA in the US makes this incredible because he is the first and only African musician to do so.

Wizkid and his giant strides have helped pave the way for the next generation of Afrobeat stars to take over the scene. And Wizkid’s father feels the same way about him that his admiring fans do. He recently expressed his happiness to be alive and in good health as his son is succeeding in his music during an interview with GoldMyne TV.
The touching video of Wizkid’s elderly father praising his successful son quickly went viral online and prompted many emotional reactions from internet users. But what father wouldn’t have bragging rights over his child with this much success and record-breaking feats? More power to the Starboy.
