Davido Platinum records have been the current trend which is why today I am bringing you all his album and songs that’s gone certified platinum.
No doubt David Adedeji Adeleke has had more than a blistering career since his debut in the Nigerian music industry.
Part of that success is constantly giving his audience and followers something to cheer about constantly.
Why it may look a daunting task it is a necessary step towards keeping your fans happy and satisfied.

Davido goes platinum with his most recent project thanks to hit songs like blow my mind and Risky.

What is The Meaning of Davido Going Platinum
It’s no longer secret that Davido’s platinum records well establish him as one of Africa’s finest.
I mean doing what he has done since his debut has been nothing but scintillating if you ask me.
So what does it mean for Davido to go platinum? It means Davido has sold over 1 million copies of his songs worldwide.
but then how is this even ever possible considering he is an African artist right?
I believe this is one of the major questions running in your head right about now if you are honest…
but hey I will tell you how!
All of these factor into him having the power to pull strings and one of such string is landing a deal with Sony Music.
In 2016, Davido signed a recording and distribution deal with Sony Music Records.
A deal that was worth over $500,000 as the time it was signed in 2016.

Fast forward to 2017 this deal paid off and it’s how Davido first single If got the mainstream.
Now let’s dive into all Davido certified platinum records step by step.
Davido Certified Platinum Single If
No doubt If is one of David’s biggest song after it’s release.
and you can say the singer is right when he said I make hit songs after hit songs.
This claim was made after the singer lamented on Instagram that no artist in the country supports him.
He further said via his verified Instagram account that people in the country. hate him because his father is rich.
and to further make us feel better or worse he said it’s not my fault that my father is rich.
To be quite frank he is right! It is not his fault his dad is a rich African… lolz
Wherever I go I see people blame the government, the rich for their problems.
Then I tell myself that if only these people could spend all that energy working on their goals. I am positive they won’t be complaining about being broke.
Did I digress?
I guess not!
It was necessary…
Davido If made it’s way to the world in 2017, and honestly, no one would have thought. it’s going to go platinum within 3 years.
As a matter of fact, this is one of those dreams you have and you think to yourself. well, I have to abandon this dream because there is no way in hell it’s going to become reality.
but in my experience, these are the thoughts of small-minded people who don’t believe in themselves.
Anyways, If was produced by Alhaji Tekno a Nigerian musician, singer-songwriter and producer.
You could say since going international Davido’s net worth has also consistently climbed the roof.
but hey “If” is only one of Davido’s platinum records, now let’s see the others, shall we?
